Piperjim, thanks. I will be using good forum info to the fullest. I've already gotten a wealth of useful info from forum members.

How'd you come out with you "top dropping" issue?

Hey Jerry, I'm down in Bartow. Unfortunately for you I'm not a real handy guy, and I've only had my Hi-Lo for a few months (bought from Treeclimber) so I'm no expert on how to repair or maintain these campers. But if you want to check out anything on my 2000 24' for reference, you are welcome to do so.

Sometimes unfamiliarity with how things are supposed to look/work/sound can be unsettling, so if checking mine out would help you, I'm straight down 17 from Winter Haven, just north of Homeland.

Now, unit doesn't seem to want to raise at all. Bummer. What should I do or check?

1996 model was stored very long and not used. Any help or advice you can give will REALLY be appreciated.

Good to be on board.

Piperjim, we have been unable to fully extend top upward, due to storing under carport. So, while almost up all the way (under carport), top began to gradually come DOWN. I will be moving trlr this Friday or Sat, so we will be trying to get top to open and lock fully upward. Will report results. Thanks.

Cugrad, Thanks, good idea. I'll just might PM you, if OK, and come see how your Hi-Lo works. Would be very helpful. I'd like to see how your 24' trlr works. You're very close to us, as we live near LEGOLAND on Cyp Gdns Blvd in Winter Haven.

Thanks Jim. My next little project will be to seek a door key for my '96 FunLite, as prior owner had lost his. Might have to get a locksmith to fit a key

mirand, just a note. Amazon has most of the parts you need for a Hi Lo. Just type RV accessories interior OR exterior. Either one will give scores of things you can use or would like. I bought a spare lock assembly for about $18.
