Rear recliners rockers

Just purchased HT 27 5 RLTS not sure how others are putting the seats back in there spot when transporting, or moving them out when at park.
I'm over 6 foot and 235 pounds and I'm having a heck of a time lifting them up to move them out. There must be an easier way. Any ideas or tips are much appreciated.

We have dual recliners in our 33.5RETS. They are awkward and heavy. We have carpet on the floor there so I just slide them around. I already have a bad back so would not think of lifting them at all. They have to be placed just right too for the opposing slides to close back up without doing any damage.

We had them in our rig too. I found them too big and cumbersome so removed both of them. One was totally useless to use because if you sat in it you couldn't see the TV screen. I replaced one of them with those Euro loungers and used the spot the other was in for something else. Worked out much better.

In my 30.5 RLS, the recliners need to be stored sideways and against the back wall so that the slide out will clear and close. Then you pull them back out forward to use, or you will bang against the window boxes.

In the first 6 months we found that the recliners rub against the small center (fixed in place) table while in transit. Sliced a piece of pool noodle to cover the edge of the table to help protect the back of the recliners.

Yes - pain to move in and out, but boy are they comfortable !

I agree they are comfortable, but darn they're a nuisance to move in and out. I found they were rubbing against the small center table too, the noodles sound like a good tip.

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...

We have the same model and yes they are awkward at best to move. The tie down ring underneath each one makes sliding them tricky. There isn't much room on either side of the center table or to clear the slides. I've found that if I lift the back or tilt it to the front slightly and shove the front with my knees, I can position them fairly easily. The round base on them can also cause them to drift to one side instead of tracking straight as you slide them. It does get somewhat better with practice. I do agree their comfort is an even trade for their awkwardness.

I always lay mine down on their back with the two bases toward each other in the middle, stick a pillow between the arms and the back wall window track. They don't move and run holes in them. I tried the tie down method that Jayco said use, they rubbed and it wouldn't have been long that a hole would have been in them. I just grab the round base and swing it around and lift the chair up when we get to where we are going.
