Manual crank for electric stabilizers?

Is there a place to operate a crank or something in case there is no electric for the stablilizers? We went out this weekend, forgot to put the remote back in the camper Luckily, we were only 45 min from home.

Awning and slide can be operated by the panel, but we couldn't find any place to manually lower the stabilizers.

I was told to remove the motor and use a wrench on the exposed shaft.
I haven't pulled a motor yet - guess I should to see what fits...

On the PORT side of the TT there is a shaft for the Electric Stabilizers. A cross pin should be seen and that is the connection point for the manual crank handle. You should not have to remove the motor, on the STBD side for anything.

Thank you, John!
Now I get to make an adapter for my cordless drill. I didn't get a handle and wouldn't carry it anyway.

I don't have electric landing gear, but tired of manually cranking and wanted an electric drill I could keep in the TT.

Found a cheap 18v cordless drill w/ light & charger at HF on sale for $19.99 this week.

Thank you for that pdf! I do not have that paper. I'm pretty sure those are the stabilizers.
