Re: Best way to raise Penthouse
I raise mine by squatting a bit and locking my arms on the 2 front handles and pushing up with my legs. Sometimes I think my one shoulder is in contact too. Mine is a bit heavier with the line-x and yesterday I did this with my 65# Hobie kayak on top too without any strain. Usually I don't even unhook the bed but I did yesterday. I have the springs adjusted to require a bit of a pull downward (without the Kayak on top) My 62 yr old back doesn't get involved.
I don't recollect another thread on best practices for manually raising the top but I think there is at least one on mechanical ways if I'm not mistaken. I'm 6'1" so height might help. Maybe we need a u-tube!
