Sounds like it's possible you don't have all the valves in the correct position.

I just did that this weekend also! My problem was not knowing where the heck my by pass valve was. I have a 2016 ST 270BH. I found it, after removing 6 screw in the nightstand next to the bed. smh... WHY would they make this so unaccessible?

I ended up just screwing 1 screw back in. That thing is heavy enough that I doubt it will go anywhere?

The things us newbies learn!

I put a drawer handle on the very right side under the bed overhang and no screws back in. Just lift the handle and the front of the cover comes up enough to get your hands on the cover and it is easily off. Does not move at all when travelling.
