Installed new bunk end cables

Earlier this summer I posted a problem about my front bunk end being unlevel. I contacted FR about this problem and they said the only fix would be to relocate the cable brackets inside the camper. This would mean drilling new holes and I didn't like that idea. I decided to order new cables and try this before doing anything else. They sent me new cables for around 4 bucks a piece. I finally got around to installing them and was surprised at the difference it made. For some reason the old cables were approx. 1 inch longer then the new ones. The front end now sits level and Im satisfied. I don't know if this was like this since I purchased the camper or it developed after some use. I have the Roo 183 model. FR said the cables would not stretch after some use and I don't think they would either. Anyway the problem is fixed and now Im ready for the fall camping season.

I wonder if your originals were for either the other end of your TT or maybe for another model of TT.

wrong end

My guess would be that they were for one of the other ends. I know each end has different length cables because FR service center made me aware of that when I ordered my new ones.

What would be odd about that, though, is the old cables were longer than your replacements. I'm not sure, but isn't the front bunk the slightly larger one compared to the rear or side bunk? If so, and if they mistakenly installed cables from another bunk for the same trailer, than the original cables should have been too short. It seems they might have given you cables for a completely different model.
