The only reason there would be a loop there is if it was a Canadian spec sofa that got installed by accident.

The hinged storage door is only on "flat floor" sofa's like the 3050 or 2700. I'd love to see a picture of this loop to satisfy my curiosity.

Not sure how to put them in the posts. I made an "album."

Here it is:

Forest River Forums - DXSMac's Album: Couch Loop

Now how do I flatten the couch? As you can see in the second picture, I can't get it out of that position.

Not 100% sure, but the loop is only to give you a hand hold to pull bottom cushion up, then when seat back cushion is flat you just push down on seat bottom to make into bed.

Yours is a little different than mine but from the underside, it looks like it might operate the same.

Photos of mine. All with the front storage panel removed.

Well, that strap certainly wasn't installed by us. Might have been a dealer add on. Something they do to make it easier. Not a bad idea if I didn't see it currently failing.

Once you get it in that position, then you actually push down on the portion closest to you. If that's not working, then something might be misaligned.

Dinette might be the best option at this point.

There should be a metal bar underneath the front of the seat cushion; grab that and pull outwards and up.
Woah! You can use the underneath as storage?!??!? That's awesome!

Yeah, there is plenty of room! However, last summer I had it STUFFED, so maybe that is causing a "misalignment" of some sort......

SUCCESS! WD-40 to the rescue! Applied some WD-40 to the hinges, and we have flatten! (as opposed to "liftoff")

The arm rest are removable to give extra length. Just pull straight up. In fact, it is better to remove the arm rest before letting the couch out because the metal hinges may scrap the material and rip or mar the upholstery.
