Question Smart Bed Creeps

On a trip to Disneyland last week I noticed my front street side smart bed creeps open while driving. It opens about 1" Is there an adjustment for this? I was told when I close them to hold the switch down a few extra seconds which I have been doing. The other SB stays closed.

Thumbs up

Hello Alpine Road Warrior:

I sound like a bad solenoid for the in side in the HWH system. If the solenoid is bad it will allow fluid to slip by and cause the Smart Bed open.

Can also be a leak in the fluid line, usually at a fitting, somewhere between the solenoid and the ram. The ram is in the floor of the basement, below the middle plastic strip. Check each fitting union from the solenoid block on the ceiling of the basement to the ram, looking for almost clear, wet area, maybe a small drip evident. That's how I found my living room slide creep source. I believe the solenoid block on the ceiling has all the solenoids for the SBs. Jack & slide solenoids are in the alum. block @ the HWH pump.
