Angry 2020 Atlas power couch issue

So it begins...has anyone had issues with their lowering the back of their couch? We have burned out at least 3 fuses and figured out the switch to lower the couch has been "hit" while moving around in the camper. This last time I didn't realize the motor was on for 2 days and therefore we have probably burned out the motor this time. The fuse never blew this time!? Thank you in advance for any advice!

Hi

Normally the motors in these things are indeed designed for short term use. Anything in the hours (let alone days) range of continuous operation probably degrades them.

Thank you. I contacted the manufacture of the couch. Someone called me back within a few hours and was great. They will be shipping out 2 new motors, "just in case something happens to the other one". Now, my husband has to figure out how to get to the motor witihout destroying something. ha!

If he wants some help, I live here in New Bern. I am not familiar with the Atlas but I have torn into boats, cars and my Airstream over many years. PM me or email at LSBRODSKY@earthlink.net
