Bed above driver raises 6 to 8 inches lower.

Hi my 2017 Miramar 37-1 the bed above the driver and passenger, driver side 6 to 8 inches lower. The control board blinks 9 times and the a green blink. It repeats itself.

Thank for some advice.

You gotta get it all the way down to the bottom
In doing so it resets
So, keep trying to lower until you reach a flat level bottom on both sides

Then raise to the top.

I have found that just lowering 6-8Ē, then raising...eventually screws it up and in order to fix I must lower it to the bottom level position, then raise to top & itís fine again.
Apparently the system isnít set up for partial lowering & raising.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that no slide system likes to be stopped in the middle of travel. You should always extend/retract, raise/lower all the way. Otherwise it will get out of sync.

AND...keep pressing the switch for a few seconds after it reaches fully-up and fully-down. Same for slides. That allows the motors to resynchronize. As others have said, always allow the bed and/or slides to travel their full length. Don't start/stop/start/stop... That knocks the motors out of synch.

The controller will tell you what error code is being flashed.

X2 on what others have said about raising and lowering the bunk. Sounds like your is out of sync.
