Pop up crank broke

Was putting up my pop up camper, 2006 Fleetwood and just as I got to the top cranking it up the crank broke. The handle just turns easy, nothing catches or moves. Seems the gear box or winch is busted. Near as I can tell the only way into the winch box is to remove very nearly the whole back end of the camper. Not going to be easy. Id rather do it in a garage at home. Anybody have any idea how to get it down enough to travel? I thought about cutting the cable under the camper that lifts and lowers the whole thing but I am far from sold on that idea. Any help is appreciated.
