I'm gauging interest on the site for a DIY tutorial on repairing the original Atwood coupler supplied on the Fiber Streams and others.

After my original Atwood "yoke" style coupler decided to retire last week, I searched for documentation on the repair/replacement process and found nearly nothing.

Any interest in a pictorial documentation of the repair process?? I'm convinced most owners with some mechanical savvy can do this safely if they have the documentation and good instructions. Atwood provides very good step-by step process documentation, and I would be pleased to post my experience and outcome along with those instructions.

Why not?
I have on on a car trailer and it could use some work.
If I do anything much I will probably choose to repair since it would not mean cutting the old one off and rewelding.

There are many of us DIYer's out there that really appreciate pictorial or video instructions on how to do things. I say go for it.
