HappiJac bed not level

The lower trolleys are not level on my Happijac bed and I can't find any information on the correct procedure for leveling them. The passenger side rear trolley is about 2" lower than the other three trolleys. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

I had to play with mine last year when I removed one of the keeper screws by accident.

Straight up... this is not a fun job. Itís tedious and time consuming. That said, if you take your time and try to keep from getting frustrated, you can do it. One other note... it sure helps to have a 2nd pair of hands to help when needed.

Thereís a 2-piece brass ďkeeperĒ that locks on to the chain in the channel. Itís this keeper that has to be moved either up or down a link or 2 to get what you need.

The following YouTube link shows what Iím talking about. Never mind the project the guy in the video is doing... just watch and the pertinent steps youíll need to take will become obvious. Good luck...

When the happijac couches aren't level

We just had this issue, One of our couches dropped down while the other was up and we couldn't get them level. So what we did was, we took the bed off the top so we could reach everything. We unplugged the motor and turned the break to off. Then we took the bar off between the ends of the bed. The long bar that turns the chains. After that we adjusted the cranking point with a socket wrench on the side that was high. We dropped it to the bottom where the other couch was. Then we put everything back together and it worked (mostly, we are ordering a new inside piece of the bar since it is stripped). The cranking point is on the other side of the bed from the motor. It is right above the chains. I hope this helps we figured it out buy taking stuff apart and trying. I'm very surprised that the internet doesn'
t address this.

Steel rod happijack bed

Can anyone tell me if the steel rod in the back of the toyhauler on the Voltage 3615 is completely straight or has a slight curve at the end near the motor. The rod does not appear to be damaged and we think it comes this way from the manufacturer.

Ok, I just went out and took a few photos in my rig for you.

While I didn’t think it had any bend… these photos confirm it. About the only thing noticeable towards the motor end, is the squared inner-shaft (which is adjustable to make the rod longer or shorter, as needed) that fits into the drum.

Hope these help.
