I'm sorry.. we have a 1999 Dutchstar by Newmar..diesel pusher, I don't know the serial #.(do you know where this would be?) Just purchased several weeks ago. but it has only one slide and sleeps 4.
I have allready taken out the little 2 drawer cabinet and now we need to tackle the reclyner..this is very heavy and do not see a place in the back of it to unscrew or to take off the b ack first before trying to take it out the door.. we are driving hoepefully to Seattle by next week as soon as my husband gets home and want to have these out as we are putting a Large Van seat in replace of these 2 items..And what about a tire for this newmar..why don't they have an extra spare tire? we are thinkinng aboutpurchasing a tire..how much? we don't know we'll have to check I guess..We have to leave on the 1st of August and be back in Alaska by the 12th of August..Thanks Again! Appreciate it very much

Welcome to irv2 longlyclan
You will have to remove everything off the bottom of the chair, mounting plates and post.You need help removing, start by placing back of chair thru door opening first than turn chair out thru door opening. Also if you remove cabinet doors it may give you some manevering space. Most large coaches didn't have spare tires, going to Alaska it would be a good idea to have one. You will have to give up some space under in one of your compartments. They do make a tire carrier that mounts on your towing bar, not sure how much time you have to order one.
Your serial# should be on a sheet in one of your cabinets with a brake down of appliences serial#'s.
