I had the same problem at first until I found the instructions. The instructions show that you should hold the seat cushion up while pushing the couch back all of the way...then when you lower the cushion it will lock in place. This has worked each time and the couch doesn't open up.

Anyone else have this problem and what have you done to resolve it? Thanks for all your help.


I use a strap and wrap it around the entire couch and place thick towels where the strap touches the couch, mine no longer opens and I have no marks on my couch, also helps secure other items to the couch, I will post photos later when I get home

Wow, we've had this same problem since we got our 2618VS in February. The sofa slides out and scuffs the floor. Just went out and tried the lifting the seat cushion technique. Took about three tries, but I got the feel of it now and it's locked in place. My wife is going to be so happy and think I'm so clever. :-) Thanks to all for the proper method!

Is the fold out sofa supposed to come with an air bed? If not, what are folks using as a cushion to sleep on it. I brought a memory foam pad but it is very bulky to haul and store.

I used a nylon strap with towels under the straps works well but someone posted a video I think of the proper way to close it

Just got our 2016 Rockwood 2608WS home and checked it a few times coming home. Same sofa problem (Not locked) and out against the bathroom door. Finally figured out how to lock it. You lift up while sliding back, but mine will NOT lift up until it is pushed in to a certain point. THEN it will lift and lock down.. Kinda a crazy trick to it. The dealer walk-thru guy never got it to latch. And there appears to be a few different types of sofas looking at the posts above, so it is tricky.

Hmm. Maybe that is why it sometimes it comes out and sometimes it does not. Going to have to go play with this
