After a week or so I emailed CW about my stuff and they got me a tracking number so I was able to watch it crawl towards me. Fortunately I had other projects that kept me from ďstanding at the stove waiting for the pot to boil.
I ordered a 3 recliner sofa which arrived in good shape. Then discovered I had room for a center arm rest which I ordered (got them to give me a break on shipping). When it arrived it looked like itíd been harpooned, huge hole in the box and the armrest. I contacted CW about the damage, sent them pics of the box and armrest damage. They seem to be handling its replacement. Waiting on itís arrival.
I may have room for a second center armrest which will be great.
Great, hope your replacement works out well. What did you replace with the purchased unit? If on a 35S, please let us know how you proceeded in taking out the fold out sofa bed? Thanks!

Our 5th is a 351 RLTS Eagle Premier but I suspect most of the furniture will be very similar in construction.
I removed an L sleeper sofa. The bed was an air mattress which got horrible reviews from our son n DIL, wound up never using it and the seating surface was showing wear.
The sofa cushions were sewed to the covering so I cut them free.
I attacked the L part first and got it out of the way, just a few screws none of which were in the slide floor.
The sleeper part was next. I rotated the back forward and figured out how it came off. I studied the seat portion and figured out what seemed the easiest way to take it apart. IIRC it broke down into 3 pieces.
It all fit easily thru the door and wound up on the curb on heavy trash day.

Some of it could have been broken down into smaller pieces but with my neighbor’s help we managed.

Palms

Host is your sofa replacement going? Iíd like to see pics of the space after you remove the sofa.

Thanks,

My most sincere apology for not having posted. Taking out the existing sofa was the biggest difficulty and I had to release the ram on the bottom of the door so that it barely fit through after taking it apart! The Camping World powered, heated and vibrating theater seats with lights were easy to assemble and they went in without any problem. As they had to be mounted further from the wall than the originals, I used an angle drill to fasten the bases to the floor. Not super-steady but it does the job. I installed it flush with the dinette and you can't make out the color difference. It does now have a 10" or so gap from the other side to the slide wall and we're looking for some kind of little table to put in there. Getting the electricity to the recliners was done by snaking a wire on the slide side of the dinette and then plugging it into one of the receptacles under the dinette and that works fine. I have to tell you that my wife and I, as well as everyone else that has sat in them consider them to be the most comfortable recliners they've ever sat in. They also look really plush. We have friends that have the same brand recliners without the power and they're quite different so, if you're considering it, go full bore and you won't regret it. I will take pictures and post the final product towards the end of the month when we get the motorhome back.

Thanks Palms, any time you can get around to it I'd appreciate the pics and details.

We are in FL until probably April and then back to Cincinnati. I'm interested in what lies under the original couch when removed.

Probably won't start this project until we get back if our tush's can survive that long

We are doing this as well, as soon as possible. What did you all do with the sofa you removed? Ours is almost new, only have 6000mi. on the coach and it was hardly used, since neither of us cared for it. How did you get rid of the old one?

Canít speak for Palms but Iíve read where they must be cut up to get them out the door. Even if you could get it out whole I donít know that anyone would have an interest unless itís a freebie for a college apartment.

Not much demand for a jack knife sofa bed unless one would be wanting to refurb an older RV on the cheap.

Didn't have to cut it up as it separates into various sections. It would not fit out the door by the slightest of margins which I resolved by removing the little lift from the bottom of the door, allowing me to open it flat against the outside wall. That was enough to get it out. I did this all by myself and was the hardest part. It's worthwhile for your back to get someone to help you take it out. After is was out disassembled, our housekeeper took it for her son who did a mini platform and is using it in his house. Don't know if the garbage people would have taken it away without some kind of prior authorization. I have to tell everyone that this has been the biggest improvement that we so much enjoy every time we use the motorhome.
PS - I haven't forgotten about the pictures and will post as soon as I'm able to take them!
