Adjustments to the 2 Recliners anyone???

We have a 16 DS 4369 with the two recliners instead of opposing couches.
Anyone else think they are not that comfortable and the head rest part is too forward leaving you in an awkward position.
Also the reclining mechanisms are very stiff and will not click or stay in one position.
Turned it over a couple times to try to find some tension adjustments but couldn't find anything that can be adjusted.
Anyone have any fixes for this or am I doomed to find something else?????

Our '02 DSDP came with one overstuffed leather recliner and a hide a bed. A few years ago I took out the hide a bed and replaced it with two La Z Boy recliner/rockers. Also took out the overstuffed leather one and put another La Z Boy in it's place.
In the present rig I took out the StressLess recliner and put a La Z Boy in it's place. Guess you can tell what my solution would be!

Had the same issue. Ended up with 2 Stressless recliners. Love them and easy to get through the entry door.

Probably not related, but...

I was never satisfied with the OEM recliner in my 98 National Dolphin. It just never reclined quite enough to be really comfortable.

After much research (ok, I accidently discovered this)... while leaning as far back as it would go, I pushed down on the foot rest then it allowed me to lean back to the exact position I wanted. I was then able to raise up the foot rest. Life is good.

Not sure why this workaround works, but I'm very happy with the recliner now.

I had the single recliner with the same issues. Hard to open and close. I pulled it out and replaced it with a Lambright recliner that is much nicer and they had leather that matched. It's also a smidge skinnier and fits better into the space.

I'm also replacing the dinette chairs. They're sooooo uncomfortable, especially the support they added on both sides where the seat meets the backrest. I find a company a couple of days ago that makes full size dinette chairs that fold. Their non folding and folding models are identical. You can order the wood type and 7 different fabrics. The back rest cushions are full size versus the small pads on the Newmar folding models. We get them next week and will check the quality and comfort.
