We're preparing our '01 2720 for resale. My hubby shopped and bought this for us in '10 but I've been the primary user and caretaker. But I don't know all teh lingo for parts. The photo says to look in the "pocket" to determine if wood or aluminum. Could someone be more specific for me? Where is that? Between the shell and the bottom? Thanks.

If you look into the pocket that the lift arm fits into, you will see something that looks like the image in post #8. In post #8 I've circled the aluminum frame in red. My picture was taken with the shell down, but you would be able to see the aluminum frame with the shell raised as well.

Hope this helps.

The pocket is where the bent (right angle) end of the lift arm goes when shells are raised. Collapsed, your lift arms (the right rectangular posts) are horizontal. If you follow them to the end where they bend (right angle) up to the shell, you will see (if you look under the edge of the shell) a recess where that angle fits into the shell wall. This is the "pocket". Hope this helps.

You'll never find it without a picture, so check the one below. On the left side, the flat white plastic piece in the circle is called the "pocket stop cover". Sounds like the pocket would be under or behind this cover, right? And it is. Get down on your knees and look straight up behind the cover. In the right side of the picture, the red arrow points to a dark area, which is an empty slot called the pocket. The pocket stop lives up inside this pocket, and Larry can take it from here.
