Easier solution is to buy one of those 3-4 inch thick foam pads and cut it to fit and lay it across the head of the bed, between the arm rests, when you use it as a bed. Then the couch isn't at an angle when you sit in it and the foam pad levels out the bed. We keep the foam pad in the storage area under the main bed or I suppose you could also put it behind the couch between the couch and the wall.

Thanks for the suggestion. We did use a form mattress pad while on a big cross country trip when we first discovered the problem. I was hoping the dealership would have a better solution to minimize a step in setting up the bed. It is already cumbersome with the air mattress. I may go back to this.

I too would be interested in the fix. While my unit was at Recreational Specialties for the upper flex fix, I was told that if the bed was adjusted to eliminate the angle, it would affect the siting position of the couch. I opted to leave it as is. Was thinking of getting the foam piece as discussed in the forum, but if there is an acceptable fix that would not affect the sitting geometry, I am willing to give it a shot.
