donno what is causing it, but you can get a spring loaded retaining pole to stop it. Might be a good thing anyway.

I guess it just started doing this.

Is this an electric or hydraulic system?

If hydraulic have you checked to see if it is low on fluid or if there is air in the system yet?

I would make sure there is no air in the system (double check) before moving on.

If your manual says how to bleed the system if you can do so.

Sounds like you need to performs the hydraulic cylinder test I found on Lippert's site. Here's the link... http://www.lci1.com/images/support/lipsheet/0076.pdf

Unless you're comfortable working with hydraulics, it looks like a job for the dealer.
