    hello everyone!

    I am making progress on rehabbing a 1984 Coleman Williamsburg and after sitting and staring at the galley for a minute, I noticed there were some gears behind some covers on either side of the galley. Being totally new to PUPs I hadnt noticed these before, but suddenly it dawned on me that there should be a chain connecting each of these gears on each side of the galley to keep the kitchenette level when it swung down. Really smart idea. However, I am missing the chains. I am wondering if any of you know if I can buy replacement chains for this old trailer, or perhaps what size chain this takes so I can try to source one.

    Thanks for any info you can provide! :)

    Sorry, I don't have a swing level galley but FWIW, chains rattle, cables don't. Just sayin' but you could make your own.

    A picture would help identify what you are missing.

    The parts manual (available on my website) lists it as a chain only. No specs provided, but they do show turnbuckles on the chain for adjustment.

    i just had mine apart yesterday for repair and adjustment.
    It's a super smart system. really simple and works well.

    if you want, i can pull the screws off and snap a couple pictures and measure the chain. Looks to be a pretty standard size, should be pretty easy to find.

    mine is a 1992, they should be pretty close i think.

    I have a question, one of the nuts that holds the chain and lift gear to the lift bar was missing and we replaced it, but now when we lower the galley to the floor it sits higher on one side where the sink is and when we close the bunks up it hits the faucet. Do you know how to repair this ?

    Thanks,
