Be careful of propping that up...i nearly broke my neck on that. As you know, the bed base and mattress weighs alot. I used a mop and the weight of the bed folded it in half and it slipped out. This is another pet peeve i have on my coach. I mean, really, how much would it have cost to do this (put in a proper support)? How much will the lawsuit be when someone does break their neck on this and die or worse yet turn into Christopher Reeve?
I have the same beef with five of my exterior comparments that do not have struts. I have pointed this out to my dealer/service as well as GS directly and was told this was how the coach was "designed".
So far, this design has caused me a sore neck from the bed compartment when the support i jimmyed slipped out and one knot on my head when the same thing happened to me on my electrical compartment when someone got in the RV while i was working, and the weight shift dislodged my makeshift support.
This is yet another thing that the factory should take responsibility for and fix IMO. Again, how much will a lawsuit cost them...especially since they now know it is an issue from me and others bringing it to their attention...can you spell negligence?
