    we had a place connected with Canvas Replacements (in Wisconsin, as I recall) rebuild the system. I removed it and sent it to them (after arranging for everything) and then about 2 weeks later they sent it back. And, I re installed it.

    What they sent back to me was a single box withe the springs folded and all of the other moving parts inside the central 'casing'. I told him that I wanted him to renew anything that looked suspicious. We have been out 3 times since - no problems. Total cost was about $350 including freight to me. Freight from So Cal was about $125. They did good work.

    This is so crazy that this is the only way to fix it
    Very surprised that this wasn't a recall to make it right
    I appreciate your fix
    Do you still have the info so I can call them
    What would a dealer do?
    Thanks

    I don't. think this is the ONLY. way. to fix. it - you can get the parts and do it yourself. The weekend it broke, I thought I could get some place locally to fix it - silly me. It's not that complicated, they just don't do it.

    My understanding is that IDT went belly up around 2006 because of repair claims. I have been told that the design is superior to. the goshen system - but evidently IDT didn't have the financial wherewithal to withstand the surge of claims and. to get it right. you. might try.

    My V shape metal retainer slipped down too did you ever find a solution to get them back inside? Do you still have the IDT lyft system or did you switch it out for the Goshen system? I bought a second hand camper with the entire lyft system removed and I'm looking to find something that can be a replacement. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Can this idt be replaced with the Goshen? I have no choice the previous owner completely removed the idt system from under the camper. The only things remaining are the lift arms and the useless rear waist high crank. I know I will have to install a winch to utilize the Goshen but I have no other alternative as getting a complete system of parts for the idt is impossible. Any advice would be a blessing.
