Default Hydraulic lift

I put my 2007 Hilo down for the winter no problem. I forgot to do something and 10 minutes later, tried to raise it to no avail. It wouldn’t raise. It just makes a clicking noise up by the motor area. I don’t know what to do. Any ideas?

Your battery voltage may be low. The lift motor gets ALL its power from the battery and it takes a healthy battery to raise the top, but very little power to lower it. The clicking you hear is probably the solenoid switch turning on, but if there isn't enough power flowing through it, the motor won't run.

Plug the trailer into shore power overnight. If your converter is working, that should charge the battery enough to get the top back up. If not, do you have the manual lift system (optional) in your trailer? If so, just put the manual handle into the receiver on the pump and move it back and forth. The top will go up slowly as you do this.
