Lift system maintenance?

I have bought a used 2008 Rockwood 1910 last year (in great shape, almost like new), the original owner lost the pop-up manual...

Do I need to do any routing maintenance on the lift system?
If so, what should I do, where to start?

I really don't want surprises at the campground...
Thanks.

Look the manual up online. But generally I have learned the the pulley/lift should be greased as well as the bearings. Check the cables for fraying. Check tire pressure and lug nuts.
Others with more experience will chime in.

Hi Dream Girl.

There is a nice post out there in the pop up forum world of how to maintain the wiffle tree and spring tubes. I will see if I can find it. You basicaly just need to squirt some grease in each zirk you see underneath and to disconnect the spring arms from the frame (two bolts) and pour some 30 wgt motor oil into the spring tubes.

Vin.
