Default Top Not Raising Properly

Help! How do I post a question? Our 93 2693br squeals when raising like it is at the top and travels very slowly. We are sure the cylinder is greased, new battery, fluid in pump is full. At our wits end.

Hi Debbie and welcome to the forum! I moved your question to its own thread in this section because I think you will get better responses here.

If the hydraulic system is full of fluid and there is no binding along the tracks, I wonder if possibly the manual lowering valve is slightly open? You can find this thing attached to the pump near the hydraulic reservoir. Some of them look like a "rod" and others, I think are sort of like a rotary knob. If it's the knob type, you turn it to open or close it. If it's the rod, I think it is moved side to side or up and down (I don't have that kind so I don't really know how it works).

If this is not your problem, you MIGHT have a leaking seal in the system that would require a rebuild.

Hang in there. Someone will be along with batter thoughts, I'm sure.

Thank you to both replies I got. Could have been the actuator rod or the needing of lubricant on the tracks. We did both and she travels like new. We were just getting it ready to sell. We just don't have the time to camp anymore. Thank you both.
