Thanks for all of the responses and suggestions. I was able to remove the motor while it was down and take it to a repair shop. It was froze and he was able to clean it and get it working for $25.00. When I put it back on the Pop Up, the roof did go up....the breakers did pop a couple of times so I did have to wait for them to reset but up it went. This is a camper that I got from family that they had not used in a couple of years, so wanted to get inside to see if it would be worth replacing anything before I spent any money.

We found a lots of mold on the canvas but bought some cleaner and the mold and stains are coming right off. Quick question... if canvas has the vinyl backing on it, do I need to apply the 303 aerospace waterproof when done?

Going to close it back down and do the maintenance and greasing that has been suggested and hopefully it will quit popping the breakers so that we can use the camper this summer. When it went up you could tell that it was having a hard time so hoping the lack of maintenance that they did was the cause and with the grease this will be better. Might have to come back and ask suggestions on replacing.

Sorry for the questions... just new to the Pop Up world and when offered this Pop Up, thought it might be a easy way to give it a try.... So cool to find such a wonderful forum....

As I posted above, the motor/winch capacity is marginal for the job it is required to do. You can nurse it along for a while as I did, but once I lost the ability to run it with a cordless drill the only answer was replacing it with an upgraded unit. Good luck!

Disconnect the power and ground from the battery. Remove the cover, and remove the switch from the cover.
Rotate the spool by the bypass nut/bolt till you can see where the cable goes into the center of the spool, loosen the set bolt and remove the cable (it will be....better loose).
Then remove the three nuts and bolts on the plate that retains the motor to the trailer frame, then pull the motor, wiring and switch out.
