Schwintek bunk lift motor removal

Has any one removed a motor from their Schwintek bunk? I checked You Tube and Schwintek's site and only find info on removing a slide motor. I want to use a bunk motor in the event we have a slide motor fail on the road. I was told the controllers are also interchangeable. If the motors have the same couplers they should also work as both are 300:1. We don't use our bunk so using parts off of it won't hurt us when traveling.

The biggest questions I have are what panels have to be taken off to access the motor and do you have to do anything with the cables? Any advice or insight will be appreciated. Thanks.

Lippert makes a variety of slide mechanisms and bed lifts. I'd make sure by comparing part #s that the motors for your bed lift are compatible with the motors in your slide. It would be good to know they'll interchange before taking one apart to fix the other and THEN finding out they aren't the same.
