Not in my case. My 2012 lift shattered a gear the second or third time I went camping. Roof was being lowered and let me say, when that gear shattered the roof lowered in about one second.
A few trips later, roof would not go all the way up. Nothing like digging through a pound of grease as a campground to get to the hi-limit switch, and then find out you also have to adjust the lo-limit switch too.
The limit switches would go out of adjustment for no apparent reason other than use.
The best thing I did was yank the power lift off, throw it in the garbage and replace it with a manual lift. No more limit switches, no more wondering if it will work or not, and really not hard to crank the roof up. It's convenient when it works ok but just one more thing to break.
Talking with the local RV place I stop into for parts, he told me that they try and shy people away from getting a power lift. Too many complaints...
