I googled the problem and saw where one guy was having a problem with the lift cable twisting, they greased the "thrust bearing", you might googled it.

Found this on MillionShort... hope it helps.

no ratchet when lowering roof on coleman cheyenne 2003

p.s. I know it's not a Jayco but after watching a few videos on the cabling systems on the Jayco, it sounds like this might be the same.

Well, given that I don't know a darn thing about how these popup cable systems work, I am really stretching but here are two more things I found that may help:

Also try spraying the lift arms with WD-40 they may be binding causing one side to not drop.

I'm not too mechanical, plus I've just had both my knees replaced so I can't kneel on them yet.
