Pop Up Let Us Down
Even though I'm the new owner of a 2015 Jayco Jay Series 1207UD I spent the first night of my 4 day camping birthday weekend for the big 5-0 in a hotel about 10 miles from the golf and rv resort where my new trailer spent the evening without me.
When we arrived at the campground at 9pm, approx 3 hours from home the roof to the camping trailer, pop-up, fold down, softside, tent trailer, whatever you want to call it wouldn't rise to the occasion. The lift mechanism would not function nor was there anyway to manually raise it.
We contacted the road side assistance and they were not able to help us beyond the telephone trouble shooting that they provided us. Even they couldn't offer solution on how to raise the roof. We could not reach Jayco, and we have been unable to get assistance and feel stranded.
What do I do now, 3 hours from home and only 6 hours into my 4 day vacation for my 50th birthday?
Hopefully someone can help me with this...
Unfortunately it appears the coupling between the motor/manual lift and the screw rod has failed. The motor spins freely and the rod doesn't turn. Is it correct to say the manual lift connection is on the back of the motor? But please share any ideas or suggestions. They will be greatly appreciated.
