    When I was a kid we had a pop up and one of the cables broke that made it lift up so my dad lifted it up by hand and cut a 2x4 to fit to hold it up. It worked but I don't know that I would recommend doing it.

    yeah, I'd try to manually pop it up. If it hasn't been up in awhile, it could just have a few kinks in it.

    If it is like our 1973 Apache Ramada it doesn't use cables but a plastic/nylon chain looking systme with a double toothed gear at each end and you might have a heck of a time getting parts or the lifting mechanism.

    Good luck,

    Larry

    Definitely sounds like the cables are broke or disconnected.
