Power Cord Reel Problem 2015 38GK

Anyone know who makes this?

Went to pull out yesterday and would not reel in. The switch appeared to be stuck in the reel in position. I pulled the switch and ordered a new one, due in today but I checked voltage on the switch wires and nothing. Checked fuses and replaced 1, rechecked voltage and was fine. I rechecked voltage today and nothing again.

I have 2 wires on the outside of the reel enclosure that I get voltage to. I am wondering if I can wire that switch to those 2 wires?

The enclosure is impossible to get into without cutting the enclosure to pieces.

Sorry for your luck Ron, I googled and found this:

50 Amp RV Power Cord Reels RH54 RL54 | Technology Research, LLC

You might have a mini breaker up by the charger bar that actually powers this. Sorry but I don't know how Redwood actually runs them. Haven't seen one in person yet.

$200 later... I had a mobile RV service come out and cut a hole in the side of the enclosure so we could access the electric connections. Found the reel motor is shot. The power cord is fixed on the reel and cannot be just unplugged so I will secure that end with Gorilla Tape and tie the remainder 30 ft. of cord to the ladder and hope I don't end up dragging it down I-10.
This should be interesting to find out how Redwood handles this warranty issue as a full timer.
