Hi All, I am a newbie to the forum. I finally got a chance to pop the top the 2010 sportsmobile I purchased, nearly threw my back out
getting it past the pre-tension, infact, I had to place my head on the pad and push up really hard, not good for this little girl. Once cleared it popped up rigidly. Getting it down, I had to hang all of my 150lbs off the top and
to get it past the reverse pre-tension. It did come down and settled into place.
My question is:
1) Is this normal for a manual pop top? Why must it have 150lbs or more to lower?
2) Is this adjustable by adding links to the springs in the channel? will it lower the push up pre-tension.
I really don't want to throw my back out trying to get my top up. Not good while camping.
