I think it is a http://www.liftmytv.com/, at least the 2007 & 2008 was. I found this manual http://go.rockler.com/tech/RTD10000351AA.pdf

There is a gearbox on the left forward side for manual operation. Here are some notes I took.

Lift It TV
2007 Monaco Signature Noble III

Motor is 120 VAC
Manual Movement – Facing Forward it is on the Left side of TV
Push IN to Engage Gears – Pull OUT to Disengage Gears
Turn CW to Lower TV
Turn CCW to Raise TV

Lift It 120 Volt Controller
Infrared JP6 Not Used
Interlock JP4 Source and Return are Jumpered Together
Wired Remote JP5 Ref. Not Used although Monaco Had a Ground wire attached
JP5 “Open” – Yellow wire is 12VDC when Open switch is Pressed
JP5 “Close” – White wire is 12VDC when Close switch is pressed
Motor Connector JP3 Located inside controller. Wire plugged into JP3 goes to the Motor.
JP3 Earth is Ground
JP3 Up applies 120 VAC to Motor when Up switch is pressed activating JP5 “Close”
JP3 Down applies 120 VAC to Motor When Down switch is pressed activating JP5 “Open”
JP3 Power is Neutral wire to Motor

Pressing “UP” switch sends 12 VDC from Multiplex Module (rear closet) to the Lift It Controller (above Windshield) JP5 “Close” white wire and activates a relay which applies 120 VAC to JP3 Up pin

Pressing “Down” switch sends 12 VDC from Multiplex Module (Rear Closet) to the Lift It Controller (Above Windshield) JP5 “Open” Yellow wire and activates a relay which applies 120 VAC to JP3 “Down” pin

Troubleshooting
TV will not raise – I have unplugged motor wire at controller JP3 and unplugged 120 VAC source, the relay clicks and everything starts working like normal (same symptom & cure 2X)

I had the same rig in my '06 Patriot Thunder. After years of fighting with the stupid thing I had it taken out and replaced with a permanent installation in the same place.

Sounds crazy but it looks great and the TV is always available. Had the work done by Davis Cabinets in Junction City OR. Actually had a bigger TV installed since they now come with smaller frames. Also don't run the risk of scalping myself on the frame coming into the MH.

Gearbox may be a misnomer. The motor and gearbox is just a tube about 3" diameter but the left side has a small opening with a hoop in there. I'll see if I have a photo.

If you end up thinking it is a broken gear I have spares. Lift It support is good and they used to have the manuals online but I don't see it now. I do have the manual if you need it. I don't know your history but Lift It says if there is an attempted theft they hang from the TV and try to force it down. There are plastic gears and metal gears in there. Mine had two broken metal gears.

As Distaff says some have Davis do a conversion. As a result of that, a friend gave me an extra motor and control box from his 2008 Patriot Thunder........

I may be crazy but it seems to not operate up or down after a hot day, next morning it works fine. I got up this morning and pushed button and it came down as normal

Are you talking about the overhead TV between Diver and Copilot chairs? The link for Lift-It product looks to be a behind cabinet/couch type lift.

Don't you have the style where you have remove the vinyl backing board (ceiling panel) over the TV to access the motor and limit switches?
