I need help!!! 1st time to this site and not sure how to use it. so if I am not in the right place Sorry... I have a 1995 Rockwood pop up camper. We planned to leave with the kids on Thursday for the campground. Yesterday when we were checking everything we went to put the camper down and pop and the front left side fell. looks like a spring came out of the rod of the roof system. Under the step going up to the bed we found the back side of the crank. There is a long spring laying in their that looks like the other end is going up the roof post. Not sure if I should pull it out or what?? We live in a remote area and the only camper place was not much help when I called them.

Sorry Lynatte that I can't help you. Try starting a new thread so someone will see this.

We are leaving Thurs late afternoon for Lake Williamson. Our neighbors with their N2them pup will be meeting us Friday evening. Their DD and our DGD are looking forward to lots of fun swimming, water slides in the lake, paddle boats, canoes, fishing, riding bicycles, and a ton of other things we are taking. We are looking forward to some rest but with DGD we may not get much. LOL Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Heading to Peninsula State park in Door County, WI. I leave on Wednesday and DW and DDs x3 join me on Friday. We're camping though the 8th or 9th.

My folks and brother and his family will be there as well.

This is the second year during the fourth at this park and last year was a blast.

I'm looking forward to a little experiment. We're dry camping (although I can charge my batteries nearby as needed) and I want to see how long the T145s can go before I need to recharge. Got a new 32gl Barker, too, for the tanks.

Weather is looking good, too... knock-on-wood.

We are picking up our new fiver!

Then we are staying at the park next door (the same person owns the dealership and park) Friday and Saturday night for a little shakedown with our new rig. We will be back home for the 4th, but can't wait for our first couple nights in our new fiver!
