I have done several of these repairs. We lived in a 24' travel trailer for the past year before buying the Montana 5er, and I had to replace almost every string in that one. Sadly, the end caps on all of mine were glued on, so I had to use a thin hacksaw blade to cut through the glue to get the caps off.

Then I realized if I catch the frayed string early enough (before it is just the thin strands in the middle with the outer sheath peeled back), I can melt the new string onto the end of the old one, and pull it from the bottom all the way up through the top and not have to take the end caps off at all. Works about 90% of the time. The rest of the time, it may break halfway through feeding it in, then I have to take off only one or two caps.

Once done you won't need any directions the second time. Or the third, fourth, etc.
