I just traded for a 2004 Winnebago Journey with a Rest Easy. First I confess I should have tested this before buying but I had looked a several before that buying tis unit and none of them had this problem. The problem is the Rest Easy will not go flat. The back of the chair has a slight incline making sleeping very uncomfortable. I guess if you slept on you back all the time it would be OK but who does that. I have spoken to Bryan at Winnebago and he says that is just the way it is BUT all the infom says the Rest Easy makes into a "comfortable" bed.

Any help??

Our Rest Easy got "lazy" and did not want to go all the way down ...

There is a gigantic screw-drive shaft underneath the couch.

I crawled under the couch with the WD-40 in hand ... and had my wife run the switch ... in short bursts both down and up ... by moving futher "down" (and carefully moving my body) ... the couch finally went all the way down ...

After it started working correctly I sprayed the screw with Kwikee spray lube ... Lithium spray grease would work too ...

I hope this helps you to get "on the level"

Whoever said those things are comfortable never tried to sleep on one. Sure don't miss it.

Ding-a-ling, just a word of caution, WD-40 is NOT a lubricant. The WD stands for Water Disperant. If has lots of solvents in it and will wash the oil from a joint. It may temporarly loosen a join by flushing some old lubricant into the joint.

Best thing to do is look for something that specifically states that it is a lubricant.

My "Rest Easy" couch makes a perfect bed, no one stays longer than three nights.

Unfortunately my dog has discovered the rest easy. Now he won't go to bed at night unless I put it down for him. He hasn't complained about it not going flat so I guess mine is okay.

Ours lies flat but it scunches up against the wall. Does yours clear the wall? That might be the problem. If it is I don't know the fix. Good luck.

OH my I am embrassed. The problem with my rest easy was there was a Joker Board (sort of like a chinese checker board) under the bed and it was stopping the bed before it could flatten. :(
