Replacing slide topper material

I just got my new toppers and was googleing for installation instructions. I came across a Youtube video that is a step by step for A&E systems. It's not all that difficult and can be accomplished with minimal skills. Amazing what you can find on Google.

Being retired means you can put off till tomorrow what you could have done today

We replaced all of our three A&E slide toppers. It's fairly easy, but is best done by 2 people. The most difficult part is unwinding the topper and locking the topper spring. We used a small screwdriver to lock the topper spring. My wife inserted the screwdriver after I manually unwound the spring. Be careful not to let the spring tension get away from you. Good luck.
