Need help fixing pop-up trailer FAAST!!
So I'm packing for a desert trip tomorrow, and when I went to put the top down on my pop-up trailer, it wouldn't go down (you know, the kind where you turn the crank one way to lift it, and the opposite to go down). I unscrewed the "crank mechanism", and it seems like it will go up because it's tightening itself, but when I turn it the opposite way, it unscrews itself, thus not turning the gears!!! Help, my wife is freaking, and I need to fix it tonight!! Should I just throw some Loctite in there so it will stick?? Please help....

Sounds liek something may be binding and causing the handle to uncrew rather than move the gears. How long has it set open? I would lubricate everything that moves or slides, and look for missalignment in the lift mechanics, if the lube dont get it moving. Is it sitting on a level spot? Has it been since left open?
