Hide a bed

Hello, we are new and our 2016 Dynamax Force HD has a hide a bed. When we fold it out it doesn't lay flat. The part under the couch is slanted way downhill. Ideas of what I am doing wrong?

Ours does the same. The foldout brace-legs are too long by a couple of inches.

just picked up a new 2016 DX3. My son is 6'3" and just didn't want to sleep in the bunk. Our hide a bed is exactly the same as you reported. I assumed the hide a bed would have a terrible mattress and be somewhat uncomfortable but did not think it would be COMPLETELY unusable. I thought that I was not folding it out incorrectly. Your head is a few inches below your hips then your feet somewhere between the two. Sleeping in a rainbow shape isn't too comfortable.

I've lurked on here for a month prior to picking up my DX3 and am very impressed by bclemens spending time on the forum. Hopefully he can explain if something is weird or can be adjusted. I can't believe with all of the thought put into all of the systems on this coach that the hide-a-bed passes as such. If that is the way it is then I'll look to have a fix fabricated.

Not sure, but instead of fabricating fix to the brace-legs, I was thinking of 2-3 inch shims under the couch legs. Not sure if this is possible, but my grandchildren refuse to sleep on it given the 2-3 inch slope.

Pictures? My initial inclination is that the legs on the sofa are missing.

I'll grab pictures tomorrow.

One other thing I noticed while I was looking under the head of the bed is that there are two holes large enough I can see daylight. They are close to the sides where the bed mounts on the inside of the couch. Looks like maybe someone forgot to mount something?

Again, I'll snap some pics tomorrow and post them up. Thanks!

Easiest fix is to increase the angle of the end bar and cut down the middle bar.

The more difficult, would be to add feet to the sofa, but then you have to figure out a way to bolt the sofa back to the floor now that it is 2" higher.

I have a call into the supplier to see what they can offer up as a solution.

Please let me know what they say. I was going to unbolt the bed from the sides of the couch and move it up a few inches but If there is a better fix I'm all ears. I thought about cutting down the middle bars also but would need to find a cap of some sort so the floor doesn't get damaged. If this was a used RV it wouldn't even be a question but having to cut down legs and make more holes in a brand new RV stings a little. Speaking of holes, any idea what the two under the couch are?

Thanks for your help Brian.
