I know this lift system has been discussed to death. I've been using this site for about a year (you all are an amazing resource!), just now making an account as I have encountered a dreaded lift system failure... The camper cranked up fine with the regular crank handle for months, when all of a sudden it would crank up but not come down. I'm thinking this is a stripped drive shaft (no real proof other than that is what it sounds like after reading some posts, I attached a picture of mine). A couple of questions... 1. It is insanely hard to get the pin that hold the whiffle tree and drive shaft together! Is there a secret to this? Have I missed a video somewhere that details taking the whiffle tree off a Coleman/Fleetwood camper? I thought I had looked enough to see every video ever posted on these things but maybe not. 2. I am considering replacing the whole crank assembly, but am wondering if I should just replace the whiffle tree with the one from canvasreplacementparts. If I do this would I still need to replace the driveshaft? It seems to say it would bypass the crank assembly parts on their website, but I'm not exactly sure if that means the drive shaft and everything is irrelevant. Thank you so much for your help!
