Losing my patience with the sofa!

I have a Flagstaff 831 RESS Classic Super Lite travel trailer which I dearly love ...except for the couch/sofa!!! Unless there is something which I do not understand, that sofa is the WORST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN! There is NO WAY I have found to secure it in the "up and closed" position. EVERY TIME we leave to go camping and arrive at our destination site we walk in to find the darn thing has NOT remained in the up and closed position but rather has slid open and flung the bottom drawer open as well which has spewed forth everything which was stored inside! What am I missing here? It is VERY difficult to close the thing up as well when trying to convert it back to a sofa/couch. It takes TWO people: one to difficultly lift on the "head" of the frame which is against the outer wall and the other to try to push the foot inwards! PLEASE tell me what I am doing wrong here! Did I just get a lemon in the couch?

Sofa problem traveling at present but will get a couple of pictures within the next day and post them so everyone can see the couch in both the "up and (supposedly)locked" position and the "failed/slid open" position when traveling along with the sprung open bottom drawer.
