Customer Question
We have a Rockwood...

We have a Rockwood tent trailer and the 7/16 nut to manually rise or lower is broken off

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your RV?

2012, premier

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

Just looked where the nut should be, nothing but a very small post

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

No the trailer is in very good shape but I'm nervous about not being able to put the trailer down if we have a problem, we just bought it used
