Hi, I have a single dune 4wd mat which I have used many times with no issues and it is rolled up and stored after each time. On my most recent trip I notice that the mat is now twisted. So it bends up on opposite corners. Could anyone advise how I can fix this? Thank you

It will likely flatten out when used, might take a few times.
For future use, self inflating mats (like sleeping bags), should be stored out of their bags, not compressed.

Further, you should avoid blowing them up (or topping up by mouth), and let them inflate over whatever time is needed, leaving them in the sun works very quickly.

Blowing them up, or topping off the pressure in them puts moisture inside and that makes future self inflation slower.
When left in the sun to help self inflate, this also dries the moisture out if left for an hour or so.

Mines always rolled up in the canopy i just unroll it and leave the plugs open for several hours or more if I know I'm going to use it. There not very comfy but better than nothing.
