New 2001 Surf Side 3311 DSO Owner on board
I'd like to introduce ourselves and to ask a question both.
My wife Margaret and I have been RV'ing for 20+ years. We just bought our second RV, a nicely kept 2001 Surf Side 31' with two slides. It sure feels roomy after our 26' travel trailer! We're looking forward to many more exploration trips in it.
Like many of you whose modifications I've read about, we already have some ideas to improve it to meet our needs. Most of them will have to wait to be done when we're sure they're well thought out and have the ime to make them. First thngs first - we want to take a few trips in it.
However one need to be done as soon as possible. After driving it 400 miles bringing it home I found I need to raise the driver's seat which is too low for me. My right knee gets stiff very quickly as it is now. Because the seat hits the slide wall as it is, it can't go any further back. So it's got to go higher. I've got a pretty good idea of how I want to raise it.
The question is if the nuts under the floor that the seat base bolts thread into are captured? Or will someone - thinner than I am - need to go underneath to hold them?
If this is mentioned in one of the posts and I overlooked it, I apologize.
