Hi, I am in a bit of a mess, I have a Coleman Taos and I like it very much unfortunately so did a mouse. The mouse built a house in the area that holds the waffletree of the camper lift system. Well that caused the waffletree to seize up and I, not accepting that the top was not going up, used all my strength on the crank assembly to get it up, well that caused the crank assembly to break. I have removed both the crank assembly and the waffletree from the camper. I am not able to get the crank assembly apart; the nut inside the drive hub extension has corroded to the drive shaft. I have cleaned the waffletree as best I can but I still cant get the piece that moves on the threads to move. That is my story now my question to you is any ideals? Is there an alternate way to get the roof up other than 2x4s? Does any one know of anywhere I can get the parts at a reasonable price? RVWorkshop has a waffletree and this is what they say "Our tree is different; we think it's a bit better. Because we use fine thread rod with more threads per inch the roof goes up easier but it takes more turns. Also the weight of the roof will not cause the lift system to unwind. This means you must crank the system down, making the ratchet/clutch system unnecessary. To eliminate the system purchase the extension rod with the whiffle tree" I don't know what that paragraph means. Any help would be appreciated.
