Default My new treasure

Good morning ,
I am the proud owner of a 1975x 21' trailer.
It is a complete remodeling project and I am excited to get started right now my number one goal is to get it lowered her storage I can't seem to get it down there's no blockage and I released the hydraulic pressure but it still won't lower .
From my limited searches my next area to investigate will be some type of safety lock wish me luck
Scott

Thanks, found it on craigslist at a local trailer park. The MGMT company had taken title in lieue of payments.
They had started to demo it for remodel, then changed their mind. It is 90% gutted but the shell is really solid and trailer rails and running gearlook good.

BTW just found the safety bar and released, now it is lowering, slowly.

Let the fun begin!!!!

It SHOULD lower with the Up/Down switch in the "down" position, as long as the master switch is in the correct position (normally pressed in at the bottom). These switches should be next to the safety bar lanyard you pulled.

Thanks all I got the top lowered. nothing is connected to the mechanism or the safety bar so I raised the top braced it and then manually lifted the safety bar and lower the top took a lot of jockey back-and-forth but got her done!

I've never dealt that vintage of a Hi Lo so I'm not sure, however I think the top may go lower still. Unless something is preventing it, I think the top settles on the those outriggers toward the rear and the "A" frame in front. I'm sure there is somebody wiser than I who could confirm that. Are you still able to get inside to look?

You are correct it did lower and rest on frame.
When I took the picture it was bleeding out residual hydrolic fluid.
I can get in side while fully lowered

Your unit just looks like it would be fun to camp AND restore! Hope you have fun doing both. Any questions, just ask and the kind people will help you best they can.
