Did you

What I would do at this point:
  1. Call PPL Motorhomes. 1-800-755-4775 Maybe they can help you.
  2. Take the stripped gear to a local Napa Auto. (It looks suspiciously like a window regulator or windsheild wiper gear to me)
  3. Take a digital picture of the gear (from the top) and use Google image search. Search by Image ? Inside Search ? Google

Temp Fix

Well after calling two RV salvage yards and searching google I came up empty. I looked at the gear again and noticed the wear was at the leading edge of the gear.

In the picture I posted you will see a nip on the gear. This nip keeps the gear lined up with the worn gear on the motor by hitting the gear cover. Well I cut the nip off with my Drimel tool and placed a spacer washer between the back of the gear housing which moved the gear up and allowed the motor worm gear to hit in a less damaged area.

I put it back together and it works! This is a temp fix until I can track down a replacement gear.
