Hood cable broken.......Newmar '04 KSGas Workhorse
THe pull handle to operate the hood latch has always been real hard to pull. I have learned that if you close the hood carefully and don't let it slam, it works a little better. I had it open yesterday, checked the engine, added a quart of oil, and but some WD 40 on the hood catch. This afternoon I went to open it, and it wouldn't open so I uses two hands. The hood did not open, but all at once the T handle came loose and freely moves in and out. It appears that the cable and handle are in a factory made housing. I have no clue as what to do. I would assume I could buy anew cable /handle assembly, but how am I going to get the hood open to replace things? Of course if someone can suggest how to fix the old one, that is an even better idea.
I love this forum, and have countless things I have learned and been helped with on IRV 2, so I respect and appreciate your suggestions. Thanks in advance.
