Well after 5hrs of labor, one phone call to local RV dealer, one e-mail to another RV dealer. Problem solved. One of the little pulleys had frozen up and the lift cords had cut clean through the plastic pulley and rivot. Situation could have been worse if those two cables had been cut and had to deal with those.
Contacted one Dealer via e-mail, got response back right away. " Yes they can order Flat Plate w/ Pulley for me, but if we are the original owner Jayco has a Lifetime Warranty on Lift System." Unfortunatly for us we are not. Contacted Local Dealer via phone, they thought they might have one in stock and would take my # and give me a call back. 2-3rhs pass, mother nature getting uglier by the minute. Finally call Local Dealer back, " Oh sorry we couldn't find part, plus lost my # in the process also " No mention of the Lifetime Warrantee either. Strike 1 local dealer. Ended up using a little 1.5" pulley that is used for garage door opener parts. Lift back in operation.
