Lift Support?

Post by msmith » Fri 04 Mar , 2011 6:11 pm

HI, I have a 2000 Mesa 12 footer that cranks up but when you let go of the crank handle it spins like crazy and the top falls.
took off the crank mechanism and the brake pad between the chain gear and the clicking gear(clutch ?)not tightly together.I put a thick washer between the housing and the chain gear to push it all together.
it seems to work but now I'm really afraid the roof will come crashing down on my head.I put 2X2 boards next to the support bars to prevent this.I'm at a loss as to why I had to put in a washer in the first place.
I took the part to Camping world and they said it cant be fixed as you cant repair the clutch which is pure BS and im not happy with there lazy mechanics ...anyhoo I could use some advise on this one.....thanks in advance......cheers....
