Older Atwood Jack

My Tradewind has an older Atwood jack that I cant seem to find referenced anywhere... It does not seem to have a manual over-ride. It works perfectly and I dont want to replace it. I merely want to understand how the manual function works. (I assume it has one). Hopefully someone else here has this jack.

Thanks!

Atwood no longer exists, which explains why you are having a difficult time finding data. This might help some.

I do not see a means of manual override either. I strongly suspect that it does not have one.

Since my manual jack does not have an electrical override , my contingency plan entails the use of a bottle jack usually carried on long trips.

Two electrical switches, eh? Arm & Fire?

update

just an update in case anyone else needs the info... I called Atwood and was told that the motor must first be removed for manual operation. That seems silly but I guess it's better than not having any manual over-ride. I was able to order the crank arm and a new plastic cover for mine. They said my model is no longer made but they had one in the back room for reference. They do still sell jacks although I have never seen one other than in the picture...

here is the current model
