2017 Winnebago Grand Tour Lippert Bed Riser Failure

The bed riser system failed. I cannot raise the bed and retract the slide with the bed extended. Does anyone know of a manual way to raise the bed? I'm stuck and cannot move the coach! Thank you

The same happened to us in our 2014 Adventurer. Traveling in Oklahoma. Called a mobile repair tech. He disengaged the motor ( looks like same motor as Lippert Schwintek slide outs). Raise the bed at bottom. Prop up or have someone hold up the bed to access mechanism. Our motor was at the right side of bed toward rear of MotorHome. The motor pulls away from mechanism. Then lift up on bed at bottom and push the bed in manually. Takes some force. May need a practice run or two. We manually raised it for the better part of a six week tour. Got easier. Dealer had to reinstall the bed-tilt mechanism. If this isn't clear let me know and I'll try to do better. The repairs took weeks as usual.
