    . A cable may have jumped off the pully causing too much tention. Could also be something as simple as a pully not rotating any more. I would suggest to locate the pullies and start from there.

    Does anyone have a diagram on how the cables run? My eye hook opened up which in turn set my cable flying and alot of Slack buy the post I see pulleys and just need to know how the cable goes around the pulleys.

    Search the forums for Jayco lift system. There are posts with links to a diagram of the entire system.

    You were right about that. Three pulley's not turning. I've replaced those and two cables. Wondering about how you know how far from the winch to place the main cable block (?) when attaching the eye-bolts. Any ideas on that? Thanks for your suggestions.

    . I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. Perhaps this document could help. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sou...FjACegQIBRAB&usg=AOvVaw1564XJXUuumvfLiQ4SUBsa

    When the camp is fully up, there should be about one foot of main cable before the winch. My recommendation is to look at the diagram and fix process, support all for corners at the same correct height, then attach the eye bolts and tighten until about the same tension on each. Lower and raise the top and check for every height and adjust as necessary.
