Default Hey There

Just picked up HiLo 2510 and am in process of going through it testing everything and familiarizing myself with all. A definite step up from the jayco pup.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new purchase. And though we have never had a Jayco pup, we did have a small Estrelle and it was a real pleasure when we got our 21T and then graduated to a 27T.

Welcome to the HiLo family. What better way to meet the family than to attend the 2019 National HiLo Rally in Ft Collins, CO. Click the link on this forum.

Hi Jim, Thanks for the offer. We are in Lyndhurst. Just outside of Waynesboro.

If ya wanna have some fun (educationally) on those trial set-ups, try laying UNDER the unit, near the piston, while it's being raised and lowered by another person. Lay FLAT, with hands on the ground. It's interesting how seeing everything in motion helps you understand how it works.

I know it is a rare occurence, but I wonder why Hilo didn't provide safety stands with the units for cable failures, Murphy and his laws live at my house quite often. I am aware cable maintenance is a must, just fear going to sleep and waking up wearing the top.

20 years as a millwright has taught me that if it can go wrong, it generally will

If your safety bar is working right, that won't happen. I periodically raise the top fully then lower it to ensure the safety bar works, then raise the top again. Carrying four 2X4s and the shimming material to put at each corner would be maddening to me.
Take care of your systems and they'll take care of you.
