Sofa Air Bed Folds Up

Does any one know what the secret is to keep the sofa from folding up when the air matress is inflated on it?

We use ours all the time. It has never "folded up." Could you post a photograph of the sofa open with the bed mattress deflated and and another inflated?

Are the "legs" down?

The air matress should have ties that you tie to the frame of sofa.
I have a 2011 SilverBack 29RE with air matress and it has the ties.

Can you actually fold it up while still inflated ??? Never tried to do that.

I assume she meant the legs collapsed.

No you can not fold it up with air in it. Go to flairinteroirs.com and watch the video on how to sit up and put down sofa with air matress.

My comment a couple of posts above was meant to be "tongue in cheek" - guess I should have added a smiley or winkie or two !

We had the same problem with our Silverback and there was a problem with the rail on the side of the bed locking in place. Our son is a service manager for a RV dealer and he fixed it in about three minutes. All it cost us was a batch of no bake cookies.

Don't you just hate it when someone asks for help then never comes back to let you know if you helped them or not?
