    Roof Repair or Rebuild?

    OK, lets deal with the roof first. That isn't hard at all to fix. What you see as layers of wood is just 5mil plywood. behind it is a stick frame. In tackling it, I would go from above first to remove the roof skin and to fix the framing. It is easier for if you go below first, you will have to...

Now saying this, you may have turned that rod so that the stop plate is in the wrong position. Look at this picture of mine. When you have the cables out to the spot I have...

    Mourning the death of our PUP

    I just looked at the pictures. That trailer is NOT difficult to fix. In fact it could be fixed in a few hours with some steel and welding. The dealer said 7K? He is full of it. He is trying to sell you a new PUP. What part of the country are you in? If you are in Virginia, you could get it to me...

    Weird situation with door frame

    Mark, check the hinges to the door and make sure they are not bent. That would cause this problem. When you check - look at the lower door when closed and see if it is seated at each corner vs the door jam the same. I'd also check the seals on the lower door. May I make one other suggestion -...

    Questions and thoughts: when you go under the camper, do you see the cables separated by turnbuckles? If yes, then that is good. It will make things easier. If no, then you may have to disassemble the lift to unhook the cable from one end and from the crank at the other end. To get the...

    1998 Starcraft

    I used the grommet kit from HarborFreight. My only pet peeve is I wish there was a hand tool that one could crimp the grommet. MY only option was to make a jig that held the strike pin and press plate so I could use a big c-clamp. It worked but it was a pain. I'd also had to sew back together...

    Unzipping the window - and what do I with the material so it doesn't get in the way?

    When unzipping the canvas and vinyl to let the breeze in, tying off the material in a roll isn't an option on this 98 Starcraft. (no tie downs and adding them means they get wet all the time and quickly fail) My client tried using Velcro but that is a bit unsightly. What do you do so that the...
