Power Seat Removal

On our 2004 Dutch Star DP, there is a corner section of square tile under the Flexsteel drivers power seat that has come loose and is starting to curl. I want to put a 1 1/2" metal seam binder frame around the floor where seat is mounted to repair and secure the tile to the floor with small nails/screws. Since the seat will need to be removed for enough work space, what are the (4) large bolts that go through the seat base secured to. Are they lag bolts that screw into the floor underlayment or perhaps threaded bolts that screw into a secured nut in the floor. I unloosened one of the bolts but it seemed to turn without appearing to retract from the floor. Anyone with a schematic of the seat mounting or information on having had to remove their seat on a similiar coach would be appreciated. There doesn't seem to be any access underneath the coach that I could see.

Don't know about Dutch Star, but on my Providence you have to put someone under the MH to hold the nuts with a wrench.

Maybe check the wheel wells too. My '01 had the two front welded to a piece of flat stock there and rear two in the first cabinet back.

I believe what some of you have said in that there will most likely be some heavy duty nuts underneather to secure the bolts above. This most likely would be the approach that Newmar would take. A member on another forum suggested using a hair dryer or heat gun on low setting to possibly soften the tile then apply contact cement to reapply. After stepping off the curb in a "DUH" moment several days ago, I'll check further after recouping from a chiropratic adjustment.
