Can you identify this mystery crank

I'm a week into ownership of a new 2013 Surveyor Select 235RKS travel trailer and I'm finally having a chance to look over the manuals that came with the trailer. Included with the trailer were 2 cranks, one silver 3/4" for the 4 stabilizer jacks and another gold crank that I can't quite find a home for. I'd assumed it was a backup for my power awning but the manuals don't mention it.

I've included a picture of the 2 cranks. If anyone can find a use for the long gold one I'd be eternally grateful.

Thanks

The one with the notch in the end is to manually move your slide in or out if you have power problems...

The other is the crank for the slide out.

Thanks for the quick replies. Should I be looking for the connection inside or outside the trailer. On the motor perhaps. I thought during the walkthrough they mentioned a 3/4" ratchet as a backup for the slideout.

I'll take a closer look when I get home.

On my TT, for one slide there is a hole outside on the opposite side of the slide of the camper down low. For the other slide, the connection is in the pull out step well, under the door on the opposite side of that slide.

Look for where your slide motors are and the holes should be directly inline with them on the other side of the unit.

It looks like the mystery crank may have been added to my trailer accidentally. I've searched the motor pretty thoroughly for a port for the crank and/or a port on an extension rod coming from the motor and I can't find either. Just the 3/4" adapter the tech told me about during the walkthrough. I even removed the 3/4" adapter to see if the slot for the crank was behind it and it wasn't.

That said, I should give the ratchet a try to see what I'm in for.

Thanks again for all the replys.

Paul

I have a '09 235 and don't have the one crank. I believe you have power stabilizer jacks? The u shape is what i have for the manual jacks, does the other fit your electric jacks in case of a power failure. The slide is manually operated by the adapter that you found already.

Happy camping,

I have one like the lower one and it is for lowering my spare tire down from under the frame of the trailer.

My electric tongue jack crank is much shorter but looks very similar to the mystery gold crank.

The top crank is the same one I used to lower or raise my stab jacks when not using the drill.

On mine, the top one lowers the spare, the bottom one works the rear stabilizer.
