Pop up lift arms ?

Newbie here. I have 3 out if 4 lift arms bent on my 1999 jayco heritage Acadia. Cables have all been replaced as well as 1 lift arm. Question is is there a way I can fix the bent arms without removing the whole assembly. Part connected to bottom seems straight. Can't raise it up all the way or it'll bend more.

Welcome to the Forum


I would suggest that you replace the lift posts rather than trying to bend them if you are planning to keep the pop up


Check the following sites for some good information on the lift systems and parts I would also check with Jayco to see what prices they have for the parts

Also RV Workshop.com

I had the same model but a 2000 That is a nice and roomy pop-up I had to replace some parts on the bed slides Then sold it and got the present Jay Feather Hybird


Suggest you check the DOT dates on the tires and replace them if older than 6 years

Are the arms actually bent?
Looking at the first photo (harder to tell in the others) it looks more like the arm is "sloppy" at the bushing where they fit inside each other. Could it simply be that the nylon bushing parts have worn out or cracked? That might be a cheaper (but more difficult) fix than replacing the whole arm if the bushing parts are replaceable.

More difficult is not what I need. The mobile RV repair man has charged me $800 so far to redo the cables and one post. So that's $700 labor. He's talking another $700. Unfortunately I bought this to live in due to some unforeseen circumstances. Then got caught in hurricane. so I'm quite desperate to get it fixed

Dealer here quoted me 900.00 to replace cables checked YouTube and removed the old cable in less than 2 hrs and had our wire rope company make me a new one(free) and no more than a couple of hrs to throw in back together. Some times these things are easier than you think. Check YouTube it can be a dollar saver.
