Sam, or anyone else...on our Walk through for our 34tbok, the tech mentioned that the flip up bunk in the rear bunkhouse needs to be up for travel. Once my dw made up the beds back there, that bunk can't flip up and lock in place because if the bedding hitting the wall and window? Any danger in leaving it down? i thought about getting an extra catch for the holding pins and could lock it down as I'd imagine the idea of having it up is so it didn't bounce during transit?
Thanks

Will the slide close if you leave it down? I'd be worried about the bunk hitting the sofa/bunk on the slide and it not being able to close properly.

I'll leave it up to SabreSam to answer, then. It could be that you're stressing the hinges by leaving it down and letting it bang around on bumps and stuff. BUT.. that's a pure guess to justify what the dealer said.

On the driver's side, do you have a lower bunk or air bed sofa?

I am not aware of any reason you would need to leave it up.
