Default Handy person can replace cables

I would recomend you replace all four cables. Here is the fifteen page post Cable replacement in my 1998HiLo24TD Dated 3-3-2010. A member in our HiLo club has replaced his on two different RVS. He claimes to have invented some new words in the process.

Go here and then click on the attached file:
Cable replacement and adjustment 1998 24TD

Cable replacement is basically the same on all years and models. The main difference is the length of the cables from model to model.

If you don't want to make up your own cables you can call J&R Repair, http://www.jrrepair.embarqspace.com/# or Midget RV & Trailer Service, http://www.hilotrailerparts.webs.com/ and get made up sets of cables.

I added to my above post, in case you didn't see it. You can buy made up cable sets rather than doing it yourself.

Also I see the cables are about $600. Is there any where that sells them cheaper?

Yup, make your own. The cable itself is fairly cheap at hardware stores like ACE or Home Depot. You have to buy the fittings and apply them yourself. You'll also use something like an eyebolt at the adjustment end.

Default Yes,You can make up your own cables

Click on the link Rich R provided 3-23-2017. It show how to do this job from Ato Z. Much more cost effective to make up your own cables.
