Power Winch Not Working

Hi - I have a 2011 MAC LTD 206 and my power winch that raises and lowers the roof isn't working. I know it isn't the battery because the battery is brand new. Does anyone know what could be the issue? It would take all day trying to crank it up by hand. Thanks.

check the fuse, and the cables, maybe something is connected but loose, a loose battery cable will not provide enough power to do anything

You can crank it with a power drill. Just make sure you start the bolt with a few hand turn to make sure it is free before actually powering it with a drill.

First make sure you have the cables connected correctly. Then check the circuit breaker coming off the + hot side of the battery that power is going through it and the ground - wire is connected.

Check the circuits at the switch, very easy to do:
