      Good question, seems to be re-labeled or un-labeled. Maybe there are some numbers stamped on it somewhere? One thing for sure the ramp maker didnt make the actuator, so going through them isnt necessary, or as expensive factoring in the markup. The key is figuring out what you have. I'm thinking taking measurements and comparing them to the linear actuators on the mcmaster site will help to figure out what it is also.

      Edit: On your picture #2, on the horizontal flat portion of the motor housing, is that a rectangular data tag on it?
      i believe it is...but it just says "warner electric"

        It looks like this problem is a fait accompli, or to quote Chick Hearn, "RIP. The game's in the refrigerator. The door's closed, the light's out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard, and the Jell-o's jiggling."

        If you have a van that needs repairs for the ramp, door, pneumatics, etc., you can call this toll-free number: 800-348-8267. You can also go to the VantageMobility website and find a VMI Dealer Directory in your area.

          I think the guy sells various lengths and versions by how I'm reading his auction. I would contact him and try to explain your situation, maybe he can hook you up. Good luck.

              I contacted the guy and that was the only one he had. If you can get someone to measure it in the fully retracted or fully extended position I'll see if I can find you one. Also, try this--while working the switch, have someone tap on the motor part (where the wires plug in [but don't hit the wires, try tapping the side]) and see if you get any action; if you do it's likely just the motor which you might be able to buy seperately and save a lot of $. Isn't there a manual over-ride to work the unit?
