Default Help needed

My Fiance and I recently inherited a 1993 Towlite 213 TT.

We first started off with being unable to figure out what was wrong with the hydraulic motor, the connection was bridged briefly and allowed us to pop it up, this is where we found we had a broken Cable, I lifted the rear end and put wood blocks under it like in the manual.

Now I need to replace the cable. It is the driver side rear cable, I have scoured this forum and the internet, I cannot seem to find what length the cable is and was wondering if anyone can help me

Further help necessary on where to find a replacement solenoid as I think this one is toast.

Thanks in advance

Hi, and welcome! If you took the broken cable off, you could determine the length you need if you were going to fabricate your own. This might be a bit difficult, depending on your DIY skills, so as an alternative, you could get a factory cable from J&R repair, and they are in Ohio too! This is a link to their homepage: Home - JR REPAIR

The solenoid is a generic "auto" part, and you can probably find a replacement in an auto store. I'd take the one you have in with you to get the right kind.

Spend a lot of time looking through this forum, you'll find answers to questions you didn't know you had.

Default Welcome to the forum.
