I know I'm wrong, but I've gone 20,000 without worrying about the pins (I keep my guitar and a few other things up there enroute). Every now and then I'll need to resynch but movement has been minimal.

I've tried everything I've read about this problem and the passenger side of our bed still drifts down about 1/2". I've decided to just live with it. We use the bed for rifle and shotgun storage.

I don't think running it down against the pins and holding the button will work... the controllers will know they are no where near full cycle (counting revolutions).
Can lower slightly if needed - but I found the pins have never come out on their own.
Same here, mine seems to drift enough after a few miles of bouncing to lock the pins in. They have always stayed in. Thx, Dennis.

FYI... Thanks to all the posters to this topic. On our most recent trip somehow without us realizing it, our overhead bed (which we thought was secured with the pins) had slowly slid down on the drivers side until it was totally out of kilter. We are talking a good 6 inches off. We were told by the dealer to raise it UP and hold it for 5 seconds. All that happened is that one side worked & the other didnt making it even worse. In 2 minutes reading here, we found the answer. Lower it DOWN. Had to help it a little back up at first but then it worked like a charm. THANKS!
