brad make sure you go on ebay for the rubber roof

you can get all your EPDM roofing for under 140 to 180$ then a can of glue for 90$

i did all of my roof for under 200$ with glue but i used TPO holds up better and thicker

i have did 5 RVs roofs befor in EPDM and TPO is alot better and dos not chock

but TPO you have to take your time and clean it good when installing and cocking

I'm not sure if you have already found a solution to the bed lift problems you are having .
I am the owner of a Garage door co.
You are winding the drums backwards.
Your cable must rap from the large side of the drum to the small side.
In that way as the bed lifts and the spring un winds ( loses tension ) the power from the drum increases due to it's reduced diameter.
If you are using the correct springs for the weight you will be able to achieve balance and full travel.
