Hurricane theater seats won't retract well

So we actually notice this on a video tour and during our demo. When it's recline it's really hard to close. The tech said just slam it closed really hard. It does always go back in but sometimes it takes five to ten tries slamming it over and over. Any thoughts, it happens on both seats?

Our seats in our Jayco Alante take a little effort to close. I usually push down as I stand up and after standing, I take one foot and push against the footrest until it latches.

Fixed issue for any one interested I can send pics. The springs under recliner have about five different holes to chose from just adjusted until I found that right tension level

Wow, good catch! I thought it was just us! I would love to find out which set of holes you used... now I will get under there and check it out.

I'll try on and see if my wife can take pictures I'm out of town on a business trip. From underneath​ you should be able to see the springs one on each side moving the footrest you can see how it works and mine had different holes I picked one that would put less tension pushing it open
I think that was the problem once you pull the cord to open it it pops out really hard and fast and it wants to keep it open

So there are two different options the top spring hook has two holes and the bottom has several holes
