Fold n Roll

Hello! I am the very excited new owner of a 1997 American Clipper Fold n Roll. Like every other owner out there, I have discovered that there is little to no information available on these. Iíve unfortunately encountered a problem with the roof lift.

The roof lifts on hydraulics. The roof lifted and lowered several times, however it suddenly stopped working. There is no sound, no attempt is made, zero is happening. Purchased a new battery, replaced the toggle switch.... and still nothing. Chasing the power, it seems that while power is going to the switch, it is not being relayed to the hydraulics? Anyone out there with one of these have an info?

Weíve discovered that there is no way to manually lift the roof. The lift stopped working BEFORE we towed it home- it literally worked, and then a moment later didnít. We checked the fuses and they are all good.
Totally stumped!

Do you have a multimeter? Have you checked your relays? Start shooting power at the battery and work your way to the pump.
