x23b couch

I'm sorry if I do this wrong. I cannot find a way to start a conversation as I am new to this forum site.
I have an x23b and really find the jack knife couch very uncomfortable. I am considering removing the couch and replacing with two recliners. Has anyone done this yet and do you have some hints and lessons learned?

To start a new Thread, You need to be in the forum section you want to post in. In this case Hybrid. In the upper left corner area, is a black box that states "New Thread" click on that box and you should be good to go.

That could be really difficult to do. Under the sofa, is a wood panel. It is held in place by about four #2 square drive screws. Remove the panel, and look under there. You have water pipes, heat ducts electrical runs and a wheel well. I removed the panel and store shoes under there. I rearranged a lot of utilities to maximize the space. Without removing the heat duct, I am not sure how you will have enough room for two recliners. Maybe one. I think I would look at removing the J-Sofa, and see if you can find some other type of seating that will fit on the bench frame that already exists. Maybe something like a futon. One more thing, I bet the bench frame also supports the side walls, so they do not flex.

RD I've heard some people use this on the sofa and it makes it a little more comfortable.

Wow, My wife will like this. Thanks for the Link.
Albiet we don't sleep on the couch often, it has occured a few times this past season. We've tried stuffing pool noodles and sleeping bags into the crevice with not much luck. Maybe this is worth the shot for a few bucks.
I also used a couple of jack stands (Camco type) and a piece of 10x2 to support the part of the couch that is left hanging when in the bed position. That alone made a huge difference.
