I was having trouble until I read the stickers by the handles. The rear handle said "lift here to raise" and the front one said "to lower". I finally understood, and it actually works - except when the ground I'm standing on is too low.

I guess my 'lift here to raise' sticker is missing. All I have is the 'lift here to lower' sticker. All this because of a missing sticker!!!!

I don't have that sticker on mine either. Just the one to lower.

My torsion bar on the right front side broke and I have to replace it. Anyone have any idea how this is done?

The first time I set mine up I ended up looking like an idiot trying to open it from the wrong end! Mine even has the correct stickers...

Our too, has gotten "heavier" to lift and even using the rear lift is almost impossible as We are short and have a terrible time lifting it into place. Now I get into the unit and assist it going up by slowly walking it up until it fits into place. I guess we all grow weaker as times goes by. Still beats a tent and the cold damp ground !

I have no actual information, but from looking at the camper, it seem the springs just fit in slots. My thought is that the bungies at the peak would have to be disconnected so the roof panels will separate. Then the section with the broken spring would have to be rotated until the tension is relieved from the existing spring and the new on can be put in place. Depending on the price of the part, replacing both springs at the seem time to keep the lift even on each side might be a good idea.

A low tech approach, but one I would want to do with some help and inside away from any possibility of wind catching the open panel. And it may be entirely wrong. My experience with the local dealer, is that the shop will give repair advice to owners.

I have a small pallet that came bolted to the bottom of an upright freezer, basically two 4X4s with boards nailed across to make a solid surface. I stand on it when lifting the back roof panel. I'm fairly short (5'7") and the extra few inches helps a lot! While camping we use it as small stoop in front of the steps.
