Re: replace lift cable on pop-up camper pete 9-21-12  
I bought a 95 rockwood pop-up. Was told by seller the lift system could be fixed for around $250. One somewhat local repair shop first quoted between $250-$350. I left it with him. When he got around to it the estimate was $600-$700 to repair it and some roof damage. Is this something I should attempt myself? The only lift mechanism is an electric winch. It tightens real tight but doesn't lift any. Suggestions for a repair person or instructions would really be appreciated. Thanks.
