Aliner Power Lift Question
« on: September 12, 2019, 05:03:30 PM »
I recently bought an Aliner Expedition and can now see one potential problem.  What happens if I am back in the boondocks and for one reason or another the power-lift doesn't work?  Is there a way to get the top up/down without it?  Would it be a good plan to purchase a couple of those little electric motors that power the life to take along just in case.  Aliner has been in business a long time so I am guessing the system is relatively bulletproof, but still, I have been RVing for a long time, long enough to know that anything can break.  Your input please.  Thanks ahead of time.

Did it come with a manual.  I have NEVER seen an electric system that did not also offer a manual crank, for this reason.  (or a dead battery)

Welcome to the Forum.

I do not know the answer but I was wondering if you are a Loach Driver?

Just realized that I was thinking about the OH6, not the OH58.

I spent many hours circling above a Hunter/Killer team in Nam.

The scout would pick a fight, stir up a response, and then scoot away for the Cobras to roll in.

Not saying anything against the Jet Ranger, but the Loach was very fast in all direction. It could scoot out of the way in a hurry, like a bumblebee.
