My valence does not lift off, it just swings up. Also my sofa will balance in a "V" shape so I can get down on the floor and lift the valence to gain access to the storage under the sofa.

Yes, you should be able to just lift the sofa part way and it will stay there. Then you're free to swing the valence up and still have a free hand to move stuff around in the space.

Thanks everyone or the help. I checked my trailer today, and sure enough the valance lifted just like everyone said. Little embarrassed I didn't figure this out on my own.

Nothing to be embarrassed about. This thread helped more than just you. If you didn't know there are a lot of others that did not know too. The only way you should feel embarrassed is if you did not ask and could not use that space.
