It says in the supplement page 19 ‘never exceed 50kg on a roof rack’ suggesting the motor will cope with that weight. then immediately below that it goes on to say ‘before closing always fold down the bed frame, straighten mattress otherwise the bellows could be damaged’. That also suggests you do it manually. I pause the operation and with assistance make sure the mattress is central.
On page 38 it says to get headroom ‘swing the roof bed upwards…’ again suggests manually.
I do not have a roof rack
My worry and question/s is this – I’ve been lifting and lowering the bed frame with the pop up roof motor. What do you do or do you do the same? I asked the MB salesman who said ‘use the roof motor’.
My second help is how to lower the roof if the motor fails. On page 21 the manual seems to illustrate using the same lever as it instructs you to use to shut off the waste water – see page 59.
I’m packed and ready to go first thing Monday. The last thing I need right now is to empty the cupboard. I made sure the lever was in the right place to hold the waste water in before I filled it. Any comments on that as well?
