Recently traded a Class C Winnebago for a 2017 Hurricane 35M. Been trying to find the answer to the following question: does the slide out section of the sofa lock in the stowed position as well as the extended position? Seems like it should, so the slide out section doesn't move around while traveling down the road. Dealer service department can't take me back until late April, so wondering if I can fix it myself!
Yes, it locks in both the closed and extended positions. There is a black locking mechanism on the end of the extension. As an aside, you need to be careful when extending and closing the expanding section - the metal rails rub against the upholstery and it is very easy to rip the material. Mine was ripped when I took delivery, and I am dropping it off at the dealer tomorrow to have that part of the coach recovered with new material.
Welcome and congrats on your Hurricane! That sofa section should lock in place, but is one of the reasons we didn't like the L-shaped sofa layouts. They always seem to be awkward and take up valuable aisle space when the slides are in. I hope you can get it taken care of quickly.

I sent an email to Thor and much to my surprise, the next day I received a phone call and Jaime walked me through some things to check. Today I tried what she suggested and the sofa now locks in the stowed position. Very happy. First trip is in two weeks to Asheville. Can't wait to break in the coach!
