Support weight of raised electric pop top?

Can the electric top be lifted with things on the roof? What is the max weight that it can handle? I have a roof rack up there and want to know if its worth putting things up there only to take it down all the time.

I know ours is able to handle an A7 in-motion satellite dish and two solar panels with no problems. We are also expecting to be ableto have a gear box up there.

Joe,

Do you have an electric PH? If you do, I believe that it can handle up to 250 lbs. according to Dave from Aluminess.

Handling in the down position is different from lifting AFIK. I think the standard operating procedure over 50-75lbs (??) is to unload most or all things from the PH before raising.

My recollection with an electric penthouse is a maximum of 250 pounds as Ray mentioned...

Peter at SMB told me 250lbs. I have had my yakima rack, yakima large box filled with about 30 lbs and my portable boat (about 60 lbs) and two of the lighter weight solar panels. No problem.
