Every now and then the front fold down TV will not come down, when it is working correctly you hear a loud click when the relay powers the motor. When it does not work you only hear a faint click and no motor movement. Five minutes later it will work fine, it has only not worked a couple of time.


Part time electrical problem are a pain.


Also does any Monoco owners out there know how to get the TV panel to drop down if the motor will not run? Has a manual crank but you cannot get at it with the panel in the up position. I have also asked Monoco this same question, I would bet I will get the answer here before they reply.

Hi Lee,


Wish I could give you a good answer, however I have never owned a Beaver myself.


Now, from your description I would lean towards a relay that is starting to fail.

Had I owned a Beaver and found the manual crank setup to lower the unit that was hidden in a location that one can not access. I would be looking at an alternative access and if there is a disconnect to release the lift from the drive motor system so one could get to things when (an you know it will) fail.

I found this reference to Beaver hinged TV problems on the BAC website.  There isn't much there pertaining to fixes, but there are a few names of people who you might contact for help.
