How Do You Repair A Popup Camper Cable?
Popup campers rely on pulleys, a crank, and four cables to make the popup portion of the camper operate; if a cable breaks or fails, the camper will not operate correctly. Occasionally, the cable to a popup camper will suddenly break and if the camper owner does not know how to repair it immediately, it can ruin vacation plans. Repairing a popup camper cable can be accomplished in about an hour. The Process Step 1 Raise the popup camper roof slowly, using one scissor jack on each corner. Once the roof is raised as far as the scissor jacks will allow, clamp the guide rods with the c-clamps and vice grips. Step 2 Use the measuring tape to measure the distance from the ground to the lowest part of the camper’s popup roof. Measure and mark a 2×4 to the length obtained during the roof-to-ground measurement. Cut the 2×4 to the determined length with the saw. Repeat this process three more times with the remaining 2x4s. Step 3 Vertically position one 2×4 under each corner of the popup camper.
