Is there a way to raise and lower the trailer manually if the cable doesn't function?

Kind of a pain each section is custom measure and cut-no repeat sizes. Set up a nice work surface in side with plenty of sharp 3 " razor blades to minimize snow beads!!!!
This is kinda late, but I just read your post. There IS something called "ponding compound" for roofs that you can buy in places like Home Depot. It is a powder that you mix with water and then you apply it like "filler". It dries hard, will fill low places, and then you can cover it with the white roof elastomeric paint.

I've used it on two "built up" roofs in Arizona, and it does a super job of eliminating ponding.

Hi
Not that I am aware of, you could use a manual hydraulic pump if the electic one fails, but if the cable fails all you could do is jack it up from the outside ( no easy way to do that)

Hello sloanstavern, I recently purchased this 1978 2278R. the previous owner had started to redo the top half. He completed the insulation. Now I need to install the paneling which he also provided. How are you planning on securing your paneling? Also, what do you plan to do about securing any 12 volt wiring in the walls? I have wires hanging everywhere. I thought I might use some Gorilla Tape to secure the wires.
