Sleeper/couch removal

Anyone know how to remove the sleeper/couch from the motorhome? How is it bolted in? Does it need to be taken apart to get it out the door, etc.?

Thank you

The entire back lifts off as one piece on my couch then there are 4 screws one at each corner of the frame base. Once removing those then the whole couch can be removed. In my case the couch can be used while traveling, so there are seat belts threaded thru the frame. Just push them down and back under the frame rails and the couch comes right out. I never completely took mine out of the MH but I moved it to the other side of the room while I did some electrical work which was behind the couch. Putting the couch back was just the reverse of taking it out. It's quite easy to do, on mine. Not sure about yours though.

Funny you should ask that as I removed mine last week. A jackknife 72" You did not say what kind of sleeper or coach you have but I can tell you I dont think I could have done it alone if it was a fold out style. Too heavy I believe. It is just as Keger said, four screws and seat belt removal. I used one of the seatbelts to wrap the center of the couch so it did not open when shoving it out the door and that was that.

I am replacing it with a loveseat that works, again, just as Keger said, the back comes off by pulling the tabs on either side and lifting up the back while holding the tabs. Easiest is one side tap and rack the back a bit then the other side. If you dont do this you will need a third hand protruding from the area of your upper chest to hold the back.

Good luck and let us know how it worked out.
Good Luck and keep us posted please. "Q"

Yes it needs to be taken out in pieces. Our's was one of those "L" shaped couch's with a hide a bed. Take off the backs first. Then the couch itself is bolted together in sections and then the whole thing bolted to the floor on the corners. I had a friend help me remove ours, taking out a section at a time through the door. Took about an hour to get it all out. Gave it all to another friend for his man cave where he has football parties in his garage.

Bringing in the new reclining Love Seat was the same thing. Bring the base in first and bolt to the floor. Then bring in the backs and slide them on.

Same as Quincy and Keger,, except my sleeper couch i un-bolted my left and right sides also. Quincy mentioned to strap the sleepersofa mechanism tight so it dont un-coil . At the time my passenger cap chair was out so it went right out the door,, be careful not to get into your dash or ceiling vinyl!! Good luck!!
