Pics would be helpful. Also make/model of your RV.

If it looks like this, it appears that you pull the bottom of the seat back towards you and swing it up, then pick up the bottom and strap it down.

Make sure you only grab the bottom cushion. If you grab the metal part,that is part of the frame and won't move.

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.

I had the same problem when I first tried to use mine - How do I do this?? one wants to grab hold of the metal frame and that is what defeats you. I totally removed mine and use it as a seat in the bed of my pikup but after having it removed for 3 years now am thinking about putting it back in.
