2011 hw296 lift winch

Hello all,
I have a 2011 HW296 that has only been used maybe 10 times. At last use the winch motor burned up and quit working. I'm sure its the motor because I have power past the limit switches and to the last lugs before the wires go into the motor. I have the "old" style winch and saw where there is a new style winch being used now. My question is does anyone have any information on the "new" winch and where to get one? Has anyone tried to convert one to a hand crank? Would the roof be too heavy for a hand crank on this camper? Thanks for any info!
