New to camping world

Hello everyone.

I recently purchased a 1997 Jayco 1207 kb jay series pop up and my wife and I have been diligently cleaning and tryin to assertain what part of the camper needs the most attention, first.

We were lowering the camper the other night in preparation for a storm and as I was lowering the camper, we heard a pop and the left rear corner drooped. I guess I have a broken cable to deal with now along with the other issues we have with it.

I look forward to getting to know everyone and learning how to fix this thing.

Regards,

Ray Dawson

I'd check the tires and if they are the originals I would replace them pronto.

They should have a code on the tire that indicates the date they were manufactured.


Make sure they are at the pressure listed on the side of the tire.
