    I would suggest an electric actuator instead. I deal a little with hydraulics on navy guns and it is a pain to keep the system running smooth

    My pop up tent camper is hydraulic. Works great. It basically has a big hydraulic cylinder under the floor that has the cables for raising attached to the end. Ram goes out, cables are pulled, top goes up.

    YEah, that would be awesome- though acutally seems like more trouble than 4 electric jacks of sorts on the inside.

    but either way, I need something, this manual method SUCKS.
