Hi: Thank you for coming to Just Answer with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX perhaps I can assist you with this issue.

This can be caused by a number of things.............and most of the time deal with inadequate lubrication on the parts. GO HERE for a copy of the Service Manual for this system. This should get you what you need, but get back to me if you need more help on this as follow ups are included in our fee. R.J.

That is the only manual they show for a might have to go to Forest River for one. See the manual on the lubrication instructions. These vary by manufacturer. Many use a silicone lubricant, rather than an oil based one so that the dust doesn't make it a mess. Most of these pop ups work much better with a few people "helping" them on the way up. Lots of cable problems on these from too much stress. Go here for the Forest River contact info.................
