Would appreciate it.

Here you go, it's not a very good video, shot it really quick this afternoon. This is for the newer attached style bunk ends.

Thanks! It was slapped together rather quickly, not one of my better videos, that's for sure.

The fans are the way to go. I have used this method the last three times camping. Works great. You did a good job on the video!!

New to the forum, picked up a 2015 Roo 21SS today and this post about folding up the ends is where I have a problem. First off we have had 4 Pop-ups and a class C.
In watching the video that one of the members did , when he put up the end it just "fell into place" , when I put up the ends up with the dealer we had to "pushed" really hard to close them up.....Didn't feel right but it was getting late and we wanted to get home. From what I have seen the mattress could be where our problem is, do you center it, then tuck in the ends with the fans on? And that does it? Tomorrow we will play with it.....Also what was the "tube" he put on the top of the end?
Anyway, we really like the unit and all it offers..Last thing, what is the process for cleaning the end material? just flatten it out and hose it? Or what??

Thanks,

Jim

Hi, our 2014 mattresses have two large straps with snaps that keep them in place so that when you fold up the end, the mattress stays put, otherwise it falls down and then its difficult to close the end. There should not be any resistance when closing up the bunk ends, if so something isn't quite right. A few posters have mentioned the mattresses no longer have any straps on 2015 models. The two large straps have two snaps each and are located out at the corners at the bunk end edges. Something has to keep it in place from sliding down when closing the bunk end.
We use a good vinyl cleaner for the ends.
