Documentation for the power assisted lift

I have a Forest River LTD/MAC 228 with a Power Lift system.
The camper manuals that I have refer only to the manual operated crank.
I do not have a manual for the electric operated lift nor a diagran of power lift electric connections.
Can some one tell where can I find that information. I need to replace the electrical; motor but I do not know who is the manufacturer of the power lift system. (No labels I can find).

ours came with information (and instruction manual) for the power lift. Is it original? Possibly added by dealer? You could call the dealer and ask them what brand they install.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.

It is orginal. However, our dealer went out of business during the last economic contrction. The closest dealer if located in Los Angeles area, about 500 miles from here. Do you know the manufacturer of the power lift?
