We have tried everything except calling the dealer because they are closed for the holiday.
They're made to hold up the weight of the bed platform and mattress so, there will be quite a bit of resistance to push it back down. After about half way down, it should fall the rest of the way by itself.
Usually, when one of the gas props goes bad, it won't hold up any weight so, unless something went wrong inside the prop and jammed the piston, then it should just close with a little bit of force.
