Mower trans won't stay in gear.

Ive got an older 48" bobcat walkbehind. Its always been a back up mower. I used it the other day and everthing worked fine but it slips out of 5th gear. It will go into 5th but first bump it hits it slides right out. It stays in all the other gears fine. It has a peerless trans. Does the trans need a rebuild? Or does it need a new trans? Is this issue an easy fix or is it best left to a pro?

Look at the top case half near where the shift shaft comes out, You should find a allen set screw. Turn this set screw in 1/2 to 3/4 turns, This adjust the shift detent ball tension and may solve your issue......
