As I looked at the wood support it looks twisted. I'm thinking of adding some small "L" bracket to support it. Has anyone else seen problems here?
The wood supports under my bed for the lift rods/shocks were distorted so I just removed the rods, don't really use that area anyway. My base plate was also loose and missing screws. Tightened and added more attaching hardware then took it one step farther and removed the plywood at the head of the bed, the area that hangs outside the wall when extended. Filled this cavity with insulation to help with heat retention in cold weather. Too much trouble to access under bed storage after adding mattress topper so we store permanent items like the original bed cover. Check your screw length so as not to drill into a water pipe below.
