My first pup mod (winch)

Goshen winch is so expensive so I bought a cheaper one off ebay (DUTTON-LAINSON DL1402A) it was $40 it has a manual brake not the automatic one that goshen sells. Reason I needed another winch was the automatic brake wouldn't hold, and I seen that as a hazard... so here is the pics

the first 3 taking the square part off
took the square part off the new lever and welded it onto the square tubing

discovered that I didn't have a small enough socket to work ... so I had to cut it off again, and put that piece on and welded it again

Nice job...

My 2008 STARCRAFT RT14 has Electric roof raise and also came with two of these LIFTER ARM SAFETY POSTs to put in place after you raise the roof.

Sure gives one a great warm fuzzy feeling when sleeping under the POPUP roof at night knowing it isn't going to fall down on top of you......
