THOR #11058
Overhead Bunk

I have a 2018 Windsport 29m with the sliding bunk. It lowers unevenly and sometimes gets stuck in the down position.I was told by the dealer that the pins are not really required while traveling. This is absolutely wrong. If not put in, one side will drop as much as 6 to 8 inches and could be dangerous.
Has anyone had this issue and if so what is the fix?
Cheers

Same Motorhome, same issue. Many threads on this forum with the same issue. Dealer is dead wrong, leave the pins in when traveling; seems like they all drift down over time. Only remedy had been to raise the bunk, reset by holding it for 5 secs after the motors stop and put the pins.

I lower the bunk onto the pins.This way the bunk will be sitting evenly on the pins. If we need the bunk I raise it and then remove the pins.

Same rig. I always use the pins and lower on them to keep everything tight.

When going up or down run for a couple of seconds when it stops to keep them in sync.
