Thor ACE 27.2 - Couch mispositioned

The couch in my 2018 Thor ACE 27.2 is positioned approx 2.5 to the left (toward front passenger seat) from where it should be. The built-in shelf unit with drink holders is also mispositioned. Ive attached a photo to show how the couch and built-in shelf unit behind it are not centered on the window.
The improper placement of the couch prevents the front passenger seat from swiveling, even with the seat slid all the way forward. The couch appears to be screwed (not bolted) to the floor and should be fairly easy to reposition. However, I cant figure out how the built-in shelf unit is attached to the coach wall/floor and therefore how to move it if I move only the couch, the unfinished back of the couch will be exposed as one enters the coach. Does anyone have experience in the removal of the built-in shelf unit behind the couch? Thank you!

My shelf behind the couch had three small L brackets screwed into the wall. With the couch moved forward, it was easy to remove the screws and remove the shelf. I needed to remove the shelf, so the new reclining love seat would fit on the slide.

I also have a Ace 27.2, 2018. Currently it is in the shop getting a third slid out motor replaced. Only one original slide out motor left. When I get it back, I will look and see if it resembles your Pic. I will be following to see what you do to resolve it. I've been thinking about getting rid of the couch for something more comfortable.
