    So, I just checked out my camper for the first time yesterday, found out that it is in fact an 1987 instead of a 1989, but while looking at it, my buddy and I went to life the top, and found that the main lift cable at the winch has snapped and was clamped back together. Because I didn't have any tools on hand, I couldn't tighten the clamp down to try to get the top up. My question is, anyone have a diagram on how to replace the cable and how difficult it is to do. I have some experience with clamping cable back together as the winch on my mower has snapped a few times. Wish that I though of taking pictures of the cable and winch, but the clamp is literally a few inches from the winch drum with the camper down.
