Camper top not up all the way

Picked up my brand new Rockwood 2716G , drove it home about 225 miles ,went to set it up and the power winch stops about an inch from the top and now the door doesn't fit. All worked at the dealership. Did some research and it looks like the limit switch needs to be adjusted. Could it be the switch adjustment moved on the drive home. Thanks in advance , any help would be appreciated. Thanks Frank

The switch setting could have moved, but if it did something is loose. Have you opened the cover and looked to see what happened?

Anything is possible with our PUPS. Make sure you are level, height cable is tight but not to the point the screws holding cable will come out. If cable is not tight than you limit switch may need adjustment. The more you use you camper the more things you will learn about it and make mods to it.

Hope this helps, enjoy your new camper

Thanks, didn't have time last night to open the cover for visual inspection, gonna do that after work today. I feel confident that it's the limit switch as the pop up was level all around. I'll let you know how I make out.

We just had the same thing with our classic 625d. The wire wasn't taught, so after two tries on the limit screw, and it is perfect. Good luck and enjoy.

Must be contagious my hw276 did the same thing last week. Worked fine at home then during setup at campground wammo wouldn't raise high enough. Thank God the rain stopped was almost ready to break out the plastic bags and duct tape...lol fairly easy repair and added a little blue loctite hopefully that holds.

thanks to all, the eagle has landed and all is well. It was a simple adjustment of the limit switch. A 4 mm allen wrench and a few tries and up she went. Thanks again to all.
