Electric Popup

Ok, We bought a used rockwood popup and used it once. Now everytime we want to put it down. The pop up won't go all the way down. It is an electric jack. Anyone know how to fix it?

A few more facts are needed. When you say, "The pop up won't go all the way down." Is the electric jack motor stopping too soon, being stopped by something, or some other issue? If the motor is stopping too soon, it could be a limiting switch not adjusted properly. Is is a screw jack? lubrication might help make it work more smoothly.

How many more inches does it need to go? You may need to strip bedding off the bunks and do a better job of folding the tenting to allow the lid to close. When we had ours the electric lift got us close (6-8 inches or so) then we would finish tucking and use the roof clasps to tighten it down until the seal touched all the way around.

My recollection is that it's mostly gravity that makes the pop up go down. As long as you don't still have tension on the cable you just need to make sure nothing is in the way and then help it a little. Getting it all the way up is another matter!
