That is pretty handy actually, our last camper had 2 separate wrenches each about 18 inches long to deal with.

And also only 1 thing to leave behind at the campground! I invested in the socked thingy and it works great for the jacks......the first set up I used the wrench and it took 10 minutes to get all of them down. Our old unit had a dedicated wrench so socket would not work.

ummm, if it is under the bed, how do you get to it to raise the roof??
My roof gizmo lift by hand thingy was under the bed mattress when I bought my camper and stayed there for several years. And then I thought about it when we started to have issues with our winch and realized we would not be able to get to it to use it .

Problem with the old style is you need a deep socket; forgot the size (5/8?) and then when you are done it has gobs of grease packed inside.
When this unit goes, I'm going manual. Would have preferred a power jack and a manual winch.

I leave it under the bed so I never loose it. The drill has the socket so if the bat is dead I will try the drill or use a ratchet with the socket.
