Jack knife couch re foam

23 MRB whitehawk.
How does one remove seat and back to reform?
Yes, I know there are 4 nuts each holding them in, but how does one do the seat part?
Thanks,

Didn't refoam the seat cushion, just added some heavy cardboard between the foam and the metal springs. Worked great.

For the backrest, just unzipped the bolsters and added some quilting batting until I got the firmness that we wanted.

After witnessing repeated sorry upholstery constantly being installed in rvs, I would think someone in that area of the industry would say enough. Lets see if we can truly improve that area. Of course not everyone will agree as to what is comfortable. But that's another story when you get to talking about the numerous issues that's repeated every year when these rvs are pushed out of the factory.

Are these people across the board that tone deaf? Yes I can answer that question, which is reinforced when you call up "customer support" [LOL] everytime and speak to them about the well known issues of pure junk thats not even fitting to make dog beds and raised platforms for humane society kennels.

I have always been pushed off to the contractors , which always needs to be reverted back to the " lack of customer service department" to get part numbers, and then shuffled back to another branch that then will possibly get back to me in a week to a month saying they will give me 10 percent or so off on new crap.

I have purchased better stuff from furniture outlets around military bases in the places where they sell stuff that might last the length of time of a person's tour on the local base.

Update:
Folks around here don't want to fool with rv couches!!
Soooo.... did it myself.
Before:
During:
After:
Foam on foam doesn't slide easy!! Used plastic bags, bingo!
Used 2" dense foam and left old foam in.
I like the result, now time will tell if it works.
