Now looking drilling out the pulley, replacing with metal one and *maybe* splicing the cable back together again. I'm only seeing sets of 4 cables online, not single ones - any ideas for single cable suppliers?

Our auto ins. agent is going to help us with registration.

We found this deal on canvas:
1997 Jayco 1005, 1006, or 1007 camper canvas | RV Workshop
I bought 3/32 cable at Lowe's. 4.80 for 16'for back right opp of door.

Do you have any pics/info about the lower door? What should fill the gap between ? I have a 95 eagle 8. I am guessing that the top and bottom should open and close together.

solar system

If anyone's interested, here is the solar / battery system I designed.

I used multiple 7Ah SLA batteries (as that is what I have to hand in my UPS systems at home)

The system support 2 differnt modes:

1) off grid use , solar charges batteries, solar controller provides regulated 12V power, inverter for AC (400W).

OR

2) AC hook-up - trickle charger tops up batteries, and ACDC 12V 2 amp supply runs the LED lighting.

Wow

Amazing job. It looks really nice and airy inside. Maybe Jayco should hire your family for interior design.

Enjoy your "new" trailer, you've earned it.


P.S. Like the design mod to your pool as well.

Absolutely Amazing

Great job!

Pat yourself on the back for a job well done! I hope you and yours enjoy your "New PUP" as much as we do. It looks fantastic :-)

Indy,

I just saw our question, am I correct in understanding you want to know how the top and bottom door attach together, so they act as one?

If so, on my PUP the top door has a down facing U track that sits on the top of the bottom door. This acts as a joiner, and makes them function together.

The PuP is stored till our next trip in October, so I cannot get any pics for you.

Hope this helped,
