Over cab bed not lowering

The overcab bed in our fr3 will not lower. It makes a noise when the the switch is placed on raise. Iíve checked the 10amp fuse in the battery compartment.

Please help.

My over cab bed is held to the ceiling with two magnets which are at each front corner of the bed. When you pull it down from the magnets, it drops a few inches and then I lower it with the switch.

2017 and newer FR3s have electromagnetic latches instead of magnets.

I would check the wires on the back of the bunk switch. I had a loose wire on mine when it was new.

mine would not lower on the front track but discovered a screw loose (which I have been told before that I have), but seriously, a loose screw was preventing it from lowering
