Happijac bed coming down on its own

I have a toy hauler with a happijac bed that just recently started coming down on its own. When it does it will not go back up when I press the switch. It seems after a while it will again go up with the switch. It will then come back down when it gets good and ready. I've checked voltage at the battery under load and battery is fine. Anyone else had this problem? Thanks

Have you checked the brake release on the motor? Details here. http://happijac.com/images/pdfs/Bed-...%20Manual2.pdf

Is it coming down as if the down switch was pressed, or is it creeping down without the motor assisting it?

Mine is creeping as well, I pin it to keep it up (which is a major pain in the tail)
