Toy Hauler Beds Stuck in Raised Position

I have a Sierra Sport toy hauler with two queen beds in the garage that lift to the ceiling when not in use. I've owned the trailer for eight years. Never had a problem with the bed lift mechanism . . . until now.

We went to use the beds for the first time this season (yes, really). The switch is operated with a key and when I turn the key I get nothing. No sound or movement at all.

Checked the fuses and that does not seem to be the problem (there was one bad fuse, but changing it out didn't make any difference).

The batteries are shot, but the generator was running. I'll replace the batteries this afternoon. Considering that the generator was running I don't expect that to make any difference.

I'd appreciate any ideas or troubleshooting tips you all can share.

A bad battery that won't even take a charge could be the issue. if not, sounds like you have a switch or motor issue. I'd bypass the switch first as that would be the cheaper of the two to hope for.
