Folding up ends.....

For some reason we are having a problem folding up the ends....my question(s) are...do you move the mattress back, off the velcro and fold up the bottom of the mattress then bring the front support bar down on top of the fold or under it......we eventually get it up, but something isn't right.....
Hope someone can understand this and set us straight. .....also do you leave the sheets on the mattress?
Jim

We put the front and side mattress bars on top of mattress after folding the rear we put the bars down in between the folded mattress because If we didn't the bar would rub against the wall during travel. We have also learned on here to close all windows and the door and turn the fantastic fans on high, this sucks in the canvas making it a bit easier.

Close all windows doors turn both fans on high. They will suck the tents in.

That is impressive. One other tip we've found helpful is after the crossbar is secured and snapped inside the mattress is to push the mattress forward a little bit. It helps avoid it getting pinched in the hinge area when the bunk door is closed.

lay the hoop and shepards hook on the mattress in a way where they don't cross each other, then fold the mattress up and secure the snaps.

Watched the video, can't believe how much the fans sucked the ends in, don't think it will work on my unit as my canvas isn't fully attached to the door but gonna try it.

I actually fold the matress and let the u shape end bar rest on top of it. The top support bar I just set in the self, will have to test this process.

I think FR keeps changing how they try to keep the mattresses in place, ours are held in place with two sets of snaps at the bunk ends and two straps with snaps, one per side. The PDI tech showed us how to put the shepards hook in the mattress fold along with the cross support. Then wrapping the straps around the cross support so it all stays in place. It's worked well so far.
I should have showed all the straps in the video as well.
I was really interested in showing how well the fans pulled the fabric in on the newer bunks as many were asking about it at the time.

Our 2013 had those straps, but they did away with them on the 2016, we now only have a Velcro strip on the bottom of the door and on the back of mattress..
