Installing additional seat belts in Thor Challenger

One thing that I didn't realize when I bought my new Thor Challenger was the lack of seat belts in the back of the house. The dinette has two seat belts and the sofa doesn't have any. This means that we only have belted seating for 4 people in the coach (including the two seat belts in the front seats).

I bought a couple of additional lap belts that I am planning to install this weekend, but seeing as this is my first time embarking on this, I figured I would see if there were any particular gotchas that I need to look out before I try this.

Should I make sure the slide is out first?

Obviously, I will look to make sure I am not drilling into anything important before I start

What other things should I make sure I do to make sure I don't turn what feels like it should be something relatively easy into a disaster?

Thanks in advance!

I just checked Thor's site and it looks like the Challengers have seat belts for the couches. Are you sure yours aren't just under the couch ?

I have looked a couple of times and don't see any. When I put the slides out it looks like the bolts are there for them coming up from the bottom of the slide (there seem to be similar bolts where the other seat belts are in the dinette), but I don't see the belts. They definitely aren't obvious if they are there. I've looked both under and behind the couch.
