What originally looked to us like a couple end boards needing replaced turned into to entire roof coming off and apart ..... As mentioned in our introduction, we traded a boat for a camper, still not sure who got the better deal ... http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=66547.0 After our second lift attempt at home, we discovered why we had to assist the lift posts up per previous owner - the catches were broke on 2 of them and they poped out of the guides on us. Goiod thing my father-in-law was around, because the roof was teetering on opposite posts. Well, since my wife and kids were going to be inside, i decided i needed to fix it and fix it right. Good news for us, our brother-in-law works for an RV dealer - very helpful, downside, he's about 11 hrs away! Got us some new posts and springs ordered, and started looking to see how to install. Seemed easy enough - will save that for another thread! One issue we new about was the rear board was so rotted, the plate for the canvas support had fallen free and we could not prop up the canvas for the bed. it must have been on it's last splinters when we were looking at it, or again, maybe we were blinded by the joy of getting rid of the boat! Looking back now, i don't recall seeing the duct tape either! After a call to Jayco customer support, this should not be a repair done with the roof in place, because the end caps are hard shells, and add to the roof structure, so off the roof was coming. And thats whne the fun begins ..... With a big thanks to this thread - http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=61335.0 WE decided I could do this.
