Underbed storage

We just purchased a Salem 27RKSS that has underbed storage. We lifted the mattress and have been unable to figure out how to get the bed to return to the go flat position. Have not wanted to force it. Any ideas? Feeling kinda stupid, but need the help.

Just push it down. It should have same lifting struts used to lift tailgates on most SUV's. It takes a little force to start it moving down.

If I'm not mistaken it has gas struts. Just push downward. It can take a little to get them going once fully extended.

On edit:.. What he said. :-) I'm too slow.

Our Hemi 282RK (basically the same but in the Hemishpere livery) has gas struts and just goes down. Make sure nothing is binding in the hinges.

I realize this is an old thread but was wondering if all 2015 Salem rkss have under bed storage opening out into the pass thru storage. I have put up two shower curtain bars to contain under bed storage separate from pass thru storage and wondering what others are doing

Never heard of the storage area being open to the pass through on any unit. Hmmm

Although I do not own the unit referred to, during my shopping around for a new TT recently, I have come across many campers that have this. The underbed storage opens to the pass through on many models.

Ok, I stand corrected. Although it would seem not condusive to rodent proofing, heat conservation, etc.
