What kind of rig do you have? We have a wire poking out of our couch and it's been scraping us up a bit.

Looks like you have the Challenger 37KT. We have the same model and we are ready to replace the terrible sofa bed. Was this one easy to get in and assemble? It is just what we are looking for!

We had (2) 37KTs parked next to us here this week at Tom Sawyer's RV park here in West Memphis, AR. Both rigs didn't push out their slides. Is that normal to avoid putting the couch/tv slide out?

Yes, it came in 5 pieces, 3 boxes. Great price compared to others I've see. If interested, I can provide tips to make it a little easier.

us we can make this happen.

We have a similar problem. I overcame it with a queen size air mattress. Fits between the recliners and the TV cabinet.

We also used RecPro recliners when we took out the dinette last spring. So far we are very happy with them. We saw them on Ebay and after getting color samples decided to visit RecPro in Indiana. When we visited their small showroom we ended up buying them that day. They unboxed the parts and loaded in our SUV for us and also discounted the Ebay price buy the cost of shipping. The pieces are small enough that they go thru the RV door with no problem and assemble easily. I chained the frames to the seat belt bolts to keep they from moving too much. If needed we can still use the seat belts.

We are thinking about replacing the jackknife sofa with recliners. DW's big concern is loss of storage as she uses the space under the sofa for stuff like gallon water jugs and some groceries that aren't immediately needed.

I haven't tried on any of our house recliners, but can you fit a couple of gallon jugs under the recliner sections without risking damaging the jugs and getting water where you would rather not have it.

Gave this more thought. There is room under each seat sufficient for the water.
