Question dump hose reel not working

Hi,
First, let me say it is not a fuse. There is power to the reel and it makes a sound both retract and extend.

It worked fine last year but my black tank valve failed. I took it to the dealer near Milwaukee and they fixed the valve. I brought it home and it has sat in an above freezing garage all winter.

I dewinterized it today since we will be heading to Alaska in 10 days. I went to unreel the hose and it did not spool out. I could easily pull it out.

It is as if a pin between the motor and the reel has sheared or fallen out. This is just pure speculation since I have no idea of the inner workings.

I cannot see any easy way of getting to it. I will contact the dealer first thing Monday but was hoping someone had some insight or experience with this problem. I could not find anything except electrical issues when I searched the forum.

I do believe I can get it wound up manually but do not want to be doing that on my entire trip to and from Alaska.

when others winterized it they wound it to tight, the gears jumped out. My dealer took it a part, fixed it and sprayed the hose with silicone so it would wrap more easily.
