L&w crank lift gear broken

The gear that connects to the passenger side of my palomino bronco 1500 made by L&w engineering broke in half. Now the passenger side of the camper will not pop up.

Does anyone know where I could find this gear.

Check McMaster-Carr. Give them a call, you will need to know the number of teeth and shaft size, width and whatever info they may need. Keyed on the shaft or pinned? https://www.mcmaster.com/#gears/=1bimlxz
If they don't have a replacement they may know who does.

Thank you everyone I found a place called canvas camper repair they're a great resource but I decided to scrap the whole crank because I couldn't get it to work and I have automated the whole system it now runs on remote control and is lifted by lineal actuators

I got the actuators from windynation you can wire them directly and they sell. A remote with their system. Each actuator is 20" and can lift 250 lbs.
I opted to splice them into the reico system instead of hassle with wiring. It's lready wired in clean and has a remote. I can adjust each actuator to dial the roof tilt and height in. I spliced off ireing and left a plug so when I need to lift the camper I disconnect the roof lift and plug in the reico camper lifts.
Make sure you keep a new battery as mine was old and led to a comical debacle one trip out. Now I take better care of my battery and it's a non issue.

Windynation.com. The guys there are really helpful. Tell em John sent ya.

question about lift conversion

My name is Sean and I am completely new to this forum. I just read your situation with your roof lift and I have been having nothing but issues with mine. I own a 2011 Palomino Bronco 800 and keep it inside my garage and the lift crank broke again. Could you send me some pictures of the set you created when you converted your lift to eletric? I have been wanting to do this with mine as it has been barely used (10 times) and has broken now for a third time. THe first time it was under warranty and was actually shipped damaged, the second time the spring snapped and the rook violently fell down, and this time the something with the saftey mechanism broke on the crank and now it will unwind itself. I was directed to that same place you mentioned above by Palomino as they discontinued their crank system and I do not want to put another crank back into this camper again.
Thank you,
