Pull Out Couch Bed HELP!!!!
We struggle with this every time we use our Fifth wheel (F28SAGDX). Key is (as other poster already commented) is to not grab the frame. But it is unintuitive and I still struggle with it a bit if we haven't used the rig in a month or more. What I do remember, which helps keep me from damaging the sofa (and my back!) is that when you do it properly, it folds apart easily. Also, when putting into "sofa position", I find it useful to put my knee at the point where the seat cushion meets the back cushion, just above where (look underneath) the frame pieces mate (sort of a tang that spring-loads onto a plate). That eases the separation of the upper (sofa back) and lower (sofa seat) frames.
