Shame on you ambassador Tim.

I got my astradome in, it's beautiful. I'm having problem taking the old mechanism off. On the inside of the trailer are the two handles, which have a couple of holes on them that look like they should take Allen keys, but apparently they don't.

I can't see inside them. Are they small set screws? Or is there some other way to take the whole thing apart. The old astradome is non-existent.

FYI for parts providers, instructions would be nice.

Thanks

On mine, the handles just pulled straight off. No set screws.

For the rest try this thread.

Thanks Tim. I guess the handles were just corroded on. Need to soak the whole thing in WD 40
