Nope.....cancelled the Lazy Boy recliner.
1. The delivery guys couldn't get it in the door
2. There s a box for slid mechanism that can't be removed under the old couch.

Looks like we ar stuck with a reupholstery of the old couch.....assuming we can find someone

On our Lazyboy recliners at the S&B, the back is easily removed from the base by pushing two levers. Did the delivery folks try to remove the backs before attempting to put the recliner into the coach?

That would be my question as well. If you can get the old furniture out you should be able to get the Lazboy in. At least we did in our 5er (took out a hideabed and chair and replaced with LB love seat and reclining chair).

Could be a bit more difficult in the coach but I am sure it could be done.

Did you also notice that his slide box (hydraulic?) also took up room and looked to me to be the final deciding factor.

As far as getting a couch in and a LA-Z-BOY, the backs come off any I've seen. Also, if not too tall, can be 'screwed' in the door as our new sleeper sofa was last week. I had to convince the non-English speaking delivery guys that I really knew how and my way really worked. Then, with trailers, most back or other window can easily be removed and installed that way but have no clue with a MH.

I bought 30A and 20A circuit breakers and a 30A outlet, to replace a double pole unused 20A circuirt breaker, in the main electrical panel in my daughter's garage, so I can plug in my MH.
Had the propane heater on the last couple of nights (in the 50's - left my electric heater at home). Now it's going to be in the 80's this week so definitely will need the air conditioner. The 15A extension I've been using since Wed. won't be enough.
All rewired now and good to go.

We bought a new awning and after watching four or five videos on YouTube we replaced it. Took us most of the day but we did it!

Recliners

DGBPokes -- When I decided to replace my jack knife sofa with recliners I got the stadium seating package at Camping World ( Heritage Recliners with center console). Each recliner was big but my brother and I laid them flat and then twisted our way through the door. I think we had about a one inch clearance to the side of the door. The upholstery on the arms compressed just enough. Check those out. My door is pretty narrow. I really love them.

One trick I used was a single section is staging. I have one that I picked up at Harbor Freight for waxing the coach. $200 has saved me a lot of time and effort http://t.harborfreight.com/heavy-dut...old-69055.html cleaning/waxing.

I put the scaffold platform at its highest position and placed the new desk on it, rolled it over to the coach and slid it in. That was a lot easier than fighting gravity lifting the desk while moving it into the coach.

ID:	126537 it has a drawer where I have the printer and the bottom filing drawer is 27" deep, it holds all the Manuals and drawings for the coach as well as one for our personal files/bills while we are traveling. I have enough room for my 27" iMac and external storage (I am in the process of editing 180+ hours of underwater video). Additionally I have 1 cabinet section for storage for all those things that go with the iMac (keyboards, disk drives, etc.) plus the DW gets 2 sections for pantry!

Wednesday the two new propane tanks, so shiny. Locally no one had 30# tanks, had to order from Home Depot ship to store 6 days wait.
Yesterday was telescoping wash brush and then cleaned the awning and under it. Now it looks presentable.

MaxxAir vent covers. Hopefully they will provide a extra bit of protection from our Texas hail storms for the skylight vents.
