Ditto, and with the 26.5 RLS one HAS to be moved to close the slide. And of course, it is a transition area - carpet to floor, so things get a little hung up. If you get it all just right, you have just barely a bit of room to squeeze by to get to the refrig, bathroom, etc. when everything is closed up. But it has to be exactly right!
Not a perfect solution, but I use "panel carriers" from Home Depot (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-P...300K/202262083
), one hooked on each side, then the chair can be lifted and moved. Doesn't leave any marks.
BTW - my local COSTCO has the same recliner in stock for about $370......my wife is seriously considering one or two more for the house they are so comfortable...
