I have a 2005 Viking pop up and one of the corners will not go down I do not know how to get inside to see if it is jammed or broken or what to do

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

No noise i cannot lower the pop up camper because the front post (lift system) by door is stuck

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '05 RV?

2005 viking

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Pop up

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

T​hat is usually from a broken cable or one that has come partially off the pulley and jammed. Or it can be from a lack of lubrication on the post. Let me see what I can find on this for diagrams and get back to you later.
