X23B Bunk Ins

Okay, once you fold your mattress up and you are down to the bare bunk-ins, do you pull back the velcro strip along the edge before folding up the ends? I've never done this but I read my manual and I think that's what they say to do. Does anyone else do this?

I've never done it. I haven't seen a need to.

I do.

I don't want to leave nothing to chance as far as any possible leaks are concerned. Especially with the bunk end seals.

Mine has a vinyl strip that covers the hinge area and is velcro'd on both sides. It stays in place all the time and does not get pinched between anything.

I've never seen a need to do this either. Just tuck the tenting in on each side and it'll close fine and not leak.

X2 on all of the above, never had any trouble. Pull the mattress, pull the pole, go out side and tuck and push

I started a few trips ago after reading the manual. I notice that it seals better and easier this way.

I was told to do this and have been doing it all the time. Never even thought about just leaving it. I noticed on a 2013 model year walk around video for the X17 they are attached to the fold down now and there is no more velcro.

2014 x20e, no Velcro besides an itty bitty 3 inch section in the corners of the bunk ends to keep out bugs.
Pull shep hooks, fold mattresses and go outside and push them up. I'm just super careful to make sure none of the tent is sticking out before I lock them in.
