How to Lube the Lift System on a Pop-Up Camper
There is nothing worse than a creaky lift system on a pop-up camper. Is your pop up lift system getting hard to crank or does it sound like it is about to break? Most lift systems on pop-up campers use the same principle. It is a strong spring like rod that rotates on a mechanism to push the top up. Over time this coiled rod gets corroded. It will become hard to crank and make lots of noise as you try to crank it up. Left unchecked it can finally seize up or worse break inside the tube and then you are in for a world of work. My camper is a Palomino Bronco and I was able to locate the place where water could get to the rod and corrode it. This is how to lube the lift system on a pop up camper. Here is a great way to lubricate your truck camper lift system or trailer pop up lift system.
