Replacement Cable Kit/ Roof Lift System for 1995 Coachmen Clipper
I have a 1995 Coachmen Clipper 190 (19' 6'' x 6'6'') and the pulley system has taken a dump. It appears that the entire system needs to be replaced. I have no idea how to do this, and I cannot afford to take it to my local rv shop to be repaired. If you could please provide me with a diagram and/or any information on repairing this it would be much appreciated. Thank you for your help.

Many hulls when turned sharply below planing speed will flip when riding two up. When wearing a neoprene suit you need to jump in periodically just to cool off. Make sure you have drained all the compartments in the hull of water every time you take the boat out of the water. I purchased a ski once that would not plane off and had a dry engine compartment. When I pulled the plug at the back several gallons of water came out. It made all the difference in the world losing all the ballast.
In order to solve the problem I needed to completly break down and diagram the entire motor. Not easy, but it worked. I started with the fuel system and made my way through till I had the motor broke all the way down to the pistons, and rebuilt it after making a diagram of every working and cast part. This included makeing note of part numbers and along with size, shape, and where the parts fit in aspect to the entire motor. In order to do any of this yourself mechanicale dtrafting paper will be needed and a lot of time.
This camper uses the Coleman lift system which uses a threaded rod that connects to a tracked distribution block to which all four cables are connected and then routed by pulleys to all four corners of the popup.First raise the popup to it;s full height by using automotive jacks and poles once extended securely clamp the poles to the telescoping up rights This IS SUPER IMPORTANT FOR YOUR SAFETY. Next get under the camper find the broken cable unbolt it's routing pulley(s) pass the broken ends out the pulley(s).Next unbolt the end from the distribution block. followed but unbolting the cable from in side the telescoping column;carefully note the routing in side the column. Buy or make up an exact length cable of aircraft grade stainless steel twisted wire cable of the same gauge. Reverse steps to re install,take lowering strain on crank make sure crank handle is captured by anti free wheeling device on camper un clamp poles remove, lower and raise top by crank to ensure smooth working. You're finished.
The manual will not help you with your issues. You need a fridge manual and your plumbing is basic. You will find water lines under your bench seats, under the tube, kit and bath sink and all will come from water tank to water heater back to faucets and toilet.
