Jayco Eagle 10'

Needing to repair the shock cord under the small endbunk. How much cord will it take to re-string ( this is the shock cord for the canvas ) I think 1/4" is what I need, also what size of hog rings to get for it also?

Thanks David

Welcome davsal to irv2.
This old guy is trying to understand your question terms seem to have changed since I have had a pop-up.
Shock cord to hold canvas in retainer ribs would be my guess, I would purchase extra cord so as not to stretch the cord when placing.
Now hog rings I'm at a lost, please explain.
Maybe someone newer than I will have that answer.
Enjoy the forums and do post your questions.

the Shock Cord ( is bungee cord under the bunk ends that you hook to fastners under the bunks. Yes I agree needs to not be under tension when installed, may just pull out old cord and measure before I order any ) Hog Rings are just little circular metal rings, used to attach bungee cord to itself ( for making the 4 circle attach points at the 4 corners of the bed. ) They have Hog Ring Pliers for crimping the rings.

Thanks David

I agree, its better to have extra. Measure around the end from one end to the other, I would add a foot or 2 then make your first loop and tie it to the old one before you pull it out and pull it around. Then have someone hold the free end as you hook each ring up making a little tension when you get to the end put the ring on and cut off the extra. Remember if you pull out the old one first you will have to use a coat hanger to rethread it between loops.

Lift System

Poped up for the first time this season. All was going well untill time to pop down. The Right Rear post is being a real pain, and not wanting to go down without helping it down manually. I take it I need to lubricate the lift system. My question is what type of lubrication is used, and what parts do I need to be looking for that cause such problems.

Thanks David

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.
