He attached rollers to these feet so that the love seat would roll smoothly as the slide out goes in and out. He also fabricated two steel brackets that he attached to the floor of the slide out and then double back over the lower frame of the love seat so that the frame slides back and forth under these brackets. I know that this is kind of hard to visualize. If you want to provide your email to me at rdale1942@yahoo.com, I will try to send you some pix. Good luck with it.

It would be helpful to many if you could post your pictures here on the forum. Thanks!

About attachment storage limits
When you upload a copy of an image file (or other attachment) it is stored on our servers. There are some restrictions on how much data can be stored.

Registered members are limited to 50 MB of attachment storage for items posted to threads and posts and 100 MB for files posted to the photo gallery. We highly recommend that you reduce file sizes before uploading them to posts and threads.

Contributing members have unlimited attachment storage for threads and posts. A contributing membership is an annual commitment. If a contributing membership reverts to a standard account, loaded images will still remain, but if you have exceeded the storage limits of a standard member account (50 MB), you may be unable to load more attachments. And remember ... all images loaded to posts (regardless of your membership status) must meet the size requirement above. If they are larger, they will fail to load.

How to embed an image stored on another site:
You can do this by using image tags. Upload the image to a service like imageshack and then copy the URL of the image and put that between [IMG] tags. That will work well, as long as the host site stays in business and doesn't disable your image for overuse of bandwidth etc.

You can also paste in the location of a photo stored here in a photo gallery.

To do this: Paste the url of the image from our photo gallery into your post. Then add the following code on either side of the url (with no extra spaces):

[IMG]url here[/IMG]

The image will appear where the url was in your text.

Couch Conversion

Hey Camping man, where did you find 2 recliners that fit and who installed them? Any advice is appreciated.

Side question here for those who have removed the couch; What did you do with it? I took mine out last year and it's still sitting in the shed. It seems I don't know how to sell it or even give it away.

I bought them at Living Spaces and put them in the MH. They are very light weight and I have not secured them to the floor. When the slide is out I just move them where I want to sit. They were less than $150 each and have an ottoman that sits in the chair when not in use. They come in black or brown. I have the black ones of course.

I still have mine. Wife wants to keep it in case we ever sell the MH.
