Arm rest

I am looking for info on repairing the arm rest on a captains chair in a winnebago class c. Do you have to take the back off etc. The arm will not stay parallel any longer.

If the captains chair is a " Flexsteel " product the lock is internal in the arm rest.
However in Class C's sometimes the seating is original to the chassis; Ford Chev; so chassis info and year, or a picture of the seat will help members provide the info you're after.

My flex steels have a latch that drops/pivots the armrest lower. Sure such a latch is not pulled?

Easiest way wiuld be is to take it to a auto interior upholstery shop, most arms are standard, while I am and can easily do it, it is hard to put into words, it can be tricky.

The OP mentioned 'parallel' which leads me to believe the arm rest has come loose.

On mine there is a zipper on the bottom rear of each arm rest, this allows the cover to be slipped off. There is a single large bolt that goes into the seat back on which the arm rest pivots. If this bolt has come loose the arm rest will flop around.
