Power Bunk Bed above MC cab

Has anyone ever had a problem with their power bunk bed in the cab. Well I did.
While lowering it the last time, it looked as though one side lowered faster and was at least 4 inches lower than the other when it got hung up and stopped.
I searched online for information and found a manual on the Schwintec Bunk Lift. It explained how to put the bunk lift in electronic manual override using the Bunk Bed Controller. I followed the direction and was able to get the bed all the way up (both sides equal) and then lowered it (both side equal).
Please don't forget. It is so important to NOT release the raise/lower switch for at least 2 seconds after the bed stops moving, up or down. This helps realign and sync the motors on both side, and keep them that way. This is true for the slide motors, as well. I hold those switches for 4 or 5 second. (I have two slide-outs).

The power bunks over the cab have to be sync'd just like the slides. There are numerous threads on the forum regarding the overhead bunks.
