Hello, i have a 1988 viking one 180 just recently brought. Cranked up and down twice to clean. Last time we tried to crank up, started lifting uneven, left side lower than right; about half way up, roof came stumping down. Crank will not operate either, seems like crank is stripped. Did find the cables, which has a little slack. Know need to be repaired, what would be the cost from dealer if any one an ideal. But in the mean time i need to lift the roof to correct problem, if i can. Need ideals on how to raise roof by hand. Help need asap.

thanks, fultonc3

Have several friends stand at the corners and then prop up the roof with 2x4's. Be Careful!
