Default Keeping top up

We winter down South for more than three months at a time and occasionally have to raise the top a bit to maintain the seal. I don't know if it's the temperature or air pressure change. I have a solar charger and regulator which maintains the battery while not in use. I found out the hard way that you should lube your lift cables. I now have new (lubricated) cables... The 2 x 4's sound like a good idea as well as lowering it for security.

so then did you have to put in holding tanks and all that? or just did the porta potty thing?
for hot water i just have an extra coffee pot and run some water through that for instant hot water to do dishes or even for a sink bath.
i rarely fire up the water heater.
i am so glad for you that everything works, you did good!

it was way too far for me to go to just go have a look at it but had i known all that your camper would be in my back yard

I saw and called about the same one but they didn't tell me that all those things weren't working and especially the fact it didn't lower.they still send me notices when a hi-lo comes in even after i emailed them that i found mine thanks.Man i would have flipped if i had traveled from upstate n.y. to Penn. state to find that out.WOW..Also keeping a hi-lo in up position without outside supports as stated by others will stretch the cables therefore causing cable problems of some sort on down the line & towing a hi-lo with it up is never to be done,a very dangerous gamble.....
