    Question about properly sliding bunks in and out? When sliding bunks in, does the end of the bed(end with strap) go over the bed slide ramps(white Teflon squares) and set behind the bed slide ramp which allows the entire bunk end to set on top of end wall instead of setting on top of the Teflon bed slide ramp. I just want to make sure I'm doing this right and that I'm not putting undue stress on my bed rails. Thanks!!

    On mine it pushes past the outside lip when I'm taking it down.

    your bed rails bend down or straight? (someone may have forgotten to put bed support poles before getting on it once or twice thus bending the rails)

    I carefully pull and push in bed if you push the center of the outside end of bunkend.

    My bed rails tend to bend in from the top. Not much , but enough to notice. I noticed this and this is what caused me to raise the question. I'm not the original owner but it has been taken care of. I'm going to raise the top pull bunk end out just a little, so the bunk edge sits on top of the Teflon slide and see if the rails are still leaning in and the top closes. Thanks

    My wife says I over think things, or as she puts it," I worry too much about things". But after 30 years in the Navy, in the Submarine Service, I guess I can't get it out of me. One little thing can lead into bigger things.

    one little bend can get the bunkend stuck until the rail is mended.
