by all means! Oh, and instead of drawer pulls to remove the panel to access underneath, I screwed on some grosgrain ribbon as a pull-tab, just below the magnets on the skirt, so it didn't interfere with the magnets. It was just long enough to stick out front enough to put a finger in and pull on. No Extra weight.

Does The Skirt Always Have Screws?

I have a 15 X213, and my couch skirt is not held on with any screws that I can find. Are they behind the wood frame as I would expect or are they covered by the upholstery? Could there be nails under the upholstery? Could it be glued on? Has everyone who's tried this mod found something other than screws? Would like to do this but I don't want to put a crowbar to it to find out!

If you look at my post here: Jayco X213 Under Couch Access Mod – Restricted Ayerspace

The first picture shows a vertical 2-by vertical between the floor and the bottom of the steel couch frame. There were two screws through the back of this 2-by material into the back of the skirt panel. They are a little hard to see but you should be able to feel around and find them. Unless of course they switched to using construction adhesive...in which case options are limited for removal.

CmpLover - not sure that it is clear from above, so just in case...

You can access the back of the panel (and the screws mentioned above) by pulling the J-Steel partially open to a 30-45 degree angle and then craning your neck inside. Bring a flashlight, it can be dark in there. You can see the angle from X213_2015's link.

Well, that's what is confusing. I've felt behind that 1x2 and stuck my head in there. There are no screws, screw holes, nothing. It's totally smooth. That's why I'm asking if anyone has seen the skirt attached in any other way?

You guys are working on removing your couches, I'm trying to make sure mine stays in place

The section of the couch that makes the L-shape in my trailer was held to the wall by two screws. It gets a rough ride going down the road and broke the two screws so I need to come up with a better method to hold it in place. Jayco just drives a couple of long wood screws into the outside wall to keep it where it's supposed to be.
