Loveseat Fix

For those folks who have a small, uncomfortable loveseat in that tight area in a slide out, maybe this fix will help. We have the matching sofa couch and loveseat combo. The loveseat is beside galley and was retrained to 55 inches in width. Although somewhat attractive, it was the most uncomfortable seat in MH. It had two positions--upright 90 degrees and even more uncomfortable bed position, I suppose designed for small children. The only thing it was good for was my grandchild's car seat (two seat-belts) and storage. Like many I've seen, I opted to take it out and place a pedestal chair in its place. I moved the loveseat to a spare bedroom in our home. After a year, I decided to replace it with a manufactured loveseat recliner but looked at the small couch one more time. When opening the lower seat for storage access, I noticed there were two "C" shaped retaining arms on each side. The arms restricted travel to the two positions--nothing in between. Without compromising safety--there are two stabilizing large rollers on each side in a rails--I cut off the top revet on each arm with a hacksaw. Without the restrictive arms, the couch now easily moves from the travel upright position through all angles to a flat bed position. It is very comfortable and now "useable."
