Raising the sides on a six

Post by mike on Thu 05 Apr 2012, 3:11 pm

A few members have said they find the sides on a six heavy to raise,this time i took notice and honestly mine are dead easy i looked on the struts but cant find any details to compare with others in case mine are stronger.

We had the same problem with ours when we first had it, the previous owners were both 6' odd, so they had no problem man handling the roof over, but we struggled until we had the silicon spray tip, it's like a miracle cure. cheers

Give the inside of the roof a good clean first, the spray will also make cleaning next time much easier.
