Pop up Camper will not raise up when cranked

I have a 1988 Viking SP210 pop up camper. My problem is that when I try to crank it up, one side will not raise. The other side raises about 3 inches but is held back by the side that is not raising. I have been told that it is a cable issue (broken or slipped off of pulley) and that the cable is located under the bottom of the camper, however I cannot find it. I would like to know if there is a drawing or diagraham of the camper model that shows where the cable is and how it works so that I could trace the problem.

The cable pulleys will be behind something in each corner of the camper , you will need to remove the wall somehow at the bottom corner , sometimes depending on the model it is easier to remove the outside panel and put the cable back on the pulley then put the outside panel back on , be prepared to damage it though as they can be very stubborn to remove but you can repair it later .

Rockwood pop-up camper.when i try to use hand crank to put it up or down only the back seems to go up not the front


Hello.

You either have a broken cable, or it may have come loose. Gain access to your anchor points and check the cables. Replacement cable can be purchased "by the foot" al Lowe's/similar as well as cable nuts and such Check the axels and spools powered by the hand crank for anything out of whack, like a broken weld on a cable drum, etc.
Best regards, W/D

Have used 1981 Coleman pop-up camper and the mechanism that raises the camper up is stripped. Either need manual for 1981 Coleman pop-up or any idea where to get the part to fix problem. It's the screw...


My Coleman has the same problem. I can crank the top up but it will not hold in place.

I just leave the crank handle in place after raising the top and secure the handle to the bumper with a bungee cord. It's jury rigged but it works great.

1995 Coleman Utah pop-up won's stay up


I had the same problem on my 1997 Coleman Fleetwood Bayside. I took out the spring pin from the crank shaft using a finishing nail and a hammer. I then put a 9/16th" socket inside to hold the nut in place while I used a pipe wrench on the outside of the crank shaft to turn it about 1/4-turn clockwise. Voila! Now it works.

Hard to crank up


May sound a bit tacky but all pop ups are a bit tedious to crank up. In the event this IS NOT your first time to own or operate a pup. I apologize and suggest you post your problem on the pop up times and or the pux webpages. Both are reliable sources for people who have pop up up or small campers.

Pop-up camper lights all turn on when tow-vehicle lights are on


FIRST, make sure white wire of camper is grounded to the frame of tow-vehicle. Temporarily use a jumper-cable frame-to-frame. Then apply 12volts individually to each of the three circuits to the camper. Assuming a 4-wire flat connector -- brown wire is for marker lamps; yellow is left brake/turn; green is right brake/turn

Broken cable in older Coleman pop-up camper...how to replace it? Can't see in body of camper where the cable needs to go through to the posts that raise the top.


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.
