Noisy Winch

Our winch on our 2014 29schw is soooooo noisy, is that normal, it even moans when stoping the lift.

Mine was to an extent. Make sure you're doing all the maint. on it or it'll have to work harder. I always greased the entire system twice a year.

It's not easy to put up with a noisy wench when you're trying to relax. But I do it because I love her and she cooks for me.

It is amazing how loud it is. Sounds like something wrong but they say it's normal.

The first time I heard how loud it was I knew there would be no late arrivals at any campground in my future. Don't understand why it's so loud.

We have a Carefree P55012 on our Rockwood 1980. The first time we raised the roof everyone in the surrounding campsites took notice along with us. I'm not sure how loud the older lift motors were but perhaps the lack of the big wad of grease around the mechanism has an effect. Just completed the annual maintenance and, according to the info online at Roberts Sales, there wasn't much to do on the power lift itself. Also used the maintenance thread on this forum from a while back complete with pictures and instructions. It was a huge help. F5Moab was the source I think.

We're considering some sort of sound proofing under the cover to muffle it. It's somewhat comforting (I think) to hear ours is not the only one.
