Interesting, how much antifreeze did you need to pour in the tank to get it to flow through the entire system, assuming you could bypass the water heater.

Doesn't the front lift off after you put the sofa at a 45. There might be a couple screws near the bottom that you have to remove. Can't remember it's been 6yrs..

Thanks, I will check that out. Sounds like you did figure out a way to remove it. I expect I am missing some step to unlatch the sofa, but it certainly isn't intuitive.

Don't think there is a good answer. I also have a j- steel and it's not the best place for storage that you use every day.

Well I haven't found a solution to this one yet but I'm working on it, keeping it open easily and having 2 free hands.

Going to work now but my first thought is to maybe install a strap with a snap in the center of the sofa just under the seat and put a snap on the under side of the front panel. Then you would just raise the sofa then raise the bottom panel and snap it together, now your hands free. My other thought would be a spring loaded hinge like the one shown below. This is the space from where the micro-wave used to be( another post). Added the door and bought the spring hinges to hold it up to be hands free. Think they were less than $10.00 at the RVstore.

Well the spring hinge Does NOT Work !!!

It's beer :30 in Bellingham now so after 3 beers and a TooT tonight, I'll have a remote controlled sofa that will be hands free for that girl I'm putting under there!
And if you believe that, then you had that TooT.

A dowel rod cut to length that will act like a leg. Just stick it under one end while getting stuff out.
