Looking for manual for my 1985 starcraft starlite 17'. Lift system cables snapped :(

Hi - Our lift system for our starcraft starlite 1985 tent trailer just went kaput. I have been calling around and am getting quoted as high as $1000 to repair the system. We thought perhaps this wouldnt be too difficult a job to take on ourselves but need a manual and some advice. Any input or suggestions as to where we can get detailed info would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Power seat lift problem

the 1st thing to check is the switch function, u will need a test light for that, if the switch is sending power to the seat motor then indeed the motor is defective, but in most cases the switch is the problem, u can't buy pars for a seat transmission, they are sold as a unit, about $400-500

SOURCE: Power sliding door doesn't work!

Try taking off the door, or spray some wd-40 on the rail. It sounds like its either not getting enough power or its getting caught on something.

1985 ford f350 diesel will not allow the ignition to engage. Dash light says water in fuel. I put on a new fuel filter. Did not help. Can I bypass the sensor?

The Diesel engine doesn't have an ignition system. Also the dash light shouldn't cause it not to start? You said you changed the fuel filter right? After you started cranking it again did the lift pump fill the new filter up. I have had these before where the lift pumps go bad causing low lift pump pressure which causes the water in fuel light to be on. Did it die going down the road or did you shut it off and can't get it restarted.

The rear is easy, it can be lifted with blocks placed between the rear axle and the spring. Without the proper wedge shaped spacer the driveshaft angle will be incorrect if you use a block bigger than 2 inches. There is no way I know to lift the front, and keep the suspension geometry proper for tire wear, and driveability. Short answer: get a lift kit designed for your truck, you will avoid alot of headache later.

Where do you refill the oil in a Toyota Townace

Dipstick, oil filler , filter etc are under the passengers front seat.
If you lift the carpet immediately in front of the seat, you will see a pair of clips holding down the seat, unlatch them and lift the seat ( in some models they hide a clip in the centre console).
The brake fluid is under a cover in the dash.
