Default what kind of bolt

Good info--Just one question. Is the bolt that attaches the cable to the top half of the trailer a lag bole into wood or a threaded bole into a nut or threaded metal?

Thanks

Default cable replacement

The Bolt that conects the cable to the roof is a threaded bolt into the metal frame of the roof.

Thumbs up

Neal and Bev - Thanks so much for this file. Mine are in good shape still, but I saved this in case I ever have any trouble.
This is excellent!

Default Cable inspection

Hi,

I'm new to HiLo's, and considering checking out a '93 23'. On your '98, are all the inner top pulleys as easy to access as the one in your picture ?

This '93 is 3+ hours a way from me, so it's a day to check it out, and a bit of fuel, even when not towing !

Great article, esp. for someone new to the brand.

Best Regards, Dave.

Welcome to the forum See below. This isn't an all inclusive list but a lot of great information to look at.

This was taken from NDgent's post here on the forum. It is a great go-by list. You can do a search of thinking about buying and find his post to read it first hand.

Basically, start with the visual items
1. Exterior
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
2. Interior cleanliness of the unit-
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
3. Test appliance functions
lights
fans
refrigerator
air conditioner
heater
water pump
range hood
stovetop
oven (if equipped)
microwave (if equipped)
stereo (if equipped)
4. Lift System-
Does the unit raise and lower properly
Check the lift system for hydraulic leaks (puddle under the trailer)
Check the lift cables to see if they are in good shape and not frayed
Check the seal between the upper and lower body halves for tears or damage
5. fill the tanks to the top and check for leaks
6. Battery
7. Solar Panel (if equipped)

Default Checking cables....

Thnx RCR, that is a good list.

I'll have to allow a bit more time than I was thinking. If I can get the owner to agree to having the tanks filled, in fairness, I should stick around to drain 'em - tis a warm December here, but still below freezing..

Best Regards, Dave.

Default Pasted from the General Hi-L0 camper discussion, from mrwalsh

"I have a 2007 30' hilo. I have popped the side cables our of the outsides. I am think the cables may have been to tight. I have had the pulleys welding back in place. Should I loosen all the cables completely so this won't happen again? I would appreciate a suggestion.Or perhaps you know someone in Colorado that can service this problem. Your help will be appreciated. Also do you know where I can buy a service DVD on the HiLO's? Thanks. Marilyn Claycomb. you can also email me at mrwalsh1937@hotmail.com and I could maybe call you if I need more help."

Marilyn presented a good question, unfortunately in an off-topic thread. To keep it (and whatever answers come forth) from being lost in the HTF, I've copied and pasted it into this Thread. As mentioned in the General discussion thread, I've contacted a Rocky Mountain Hi-Lo Club member, in Colorado, to advise on the availability of any former Hi-Lo dealer, in that geographic area, who may still have the expertise to help.

Jim
