I wound up taking my trailer to the dealer in Dallas for warranty and they agreed to try and have it ready by month end so I didn't have to make two trips.
I followed a thread on another forum with great interest about the maintenance/repair/replacement of the waste gate cable. My front grey tank handle was very difficult to pull. Not long after I read the post about the replacement, I broke the handle off. Since this was the only real issue that I was considering submitting under warranty, the detailed instructions in the post gave me the confidence to tackle the job myself and save the 700 mile round-trip for service. I ordered new waste valves with cables and four "Trap Flap
" zippered access panels recommend in the thread to access all the valves because the riveted underbelly is hard to remove.
This past weekend I was all set to repair the cable myself. Just as described the cable was wrapped in tight circles around the plumbing behind the UDC wall causing the tension. When I crawled up under the trailer to figure out how to install the "trap flaps" I noticed the rear off door level up jack was leaking hydraulic fluid.
I stopped right there because I didn't want to consider messing with the hydraulics, even if it just meant tightening up a line. I figured if I was going to take it back for the leak, then I would let the dealer also fix the broken cable.
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
