Overhead bed magnetic attachment

Is anyone else having problems with their overhead bunk coming loose from the magnetic pads when hitting bumps on the road? I have only driven our FR3 30DS a few times and when I hit mild to medium road bumps the bed disconnects. It seems like it has a good magnetic hold and takes a good yank to disconnect it before lowering the bed. Just seems like it will put undo stress on the mechanism if I keep driving with it hanging there.

I have had the same issue. Sometimes it comes loose without a big bump, I look up and the one corner is loose while the other is still attached. It seems like a simple latch to lock it in place would be a great addition.

It happens to us too. I'd love to see other people's solutions.

My bed did drop at first but it was because the cushion was not pushed toward the front of the coach. If the cushion is close to or on the lip of the base it will drop while driving.

You can't have any extra bedding or pillows up there or it will drop!

This is a minimal issue but extremely frustrating to me. I can't seem to keep the passenger side attached. I have messed with the mattress and tried to force it to stay but no joy. On my rig, I think that it may be an alignment issue as much as anything else. I plan on messing with it over the winter time. Until then, I just let it rattle with the absurd wind noise....

Wolfgang,
The noise your hearing is probably coming from your weep holes at the bottom of your front Windows. Try temporarily putting tape over the holes and driving at freeway speeds to see if it makes a difference as it sure did with ours. I added "weep hole covers" and now I can actually hear the dh from the copilot seat
