I did same, if drawer you have to bold all four legs with the opening toward ya! Gave mine away and bought two lazy boy reclines with the circle on bottom for stable balance an can bolt them Dow! When bolting sofa down get in the opening to get to holes on foot, if you have younger one ask for help!

I would recommend them to anyone. Regards, Craig

Not sure if you got your "Jacknife" couch back together, but it really is possible even without good manual...
1. Set the drawer and arms aside, as they are last items to go in...
2. Base gets mounted back to floor using old holes and screws first.
3. The scissor/swinging arms are bolted first to floor, and then angle brackets with two holes are screwed into wooden back of couch back cushion. (Not easy to hold in position where you can screw from behind into cushion backing..)
4. Then drawer underneath gets slid under, and finally armrests get slid in and screwed to floor with tabs...

Wish I'd taken photo's as I was doing ours, as it would be much easier to show than describe...

In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...

in the process of washing curtains from my 1989 345LE Classic Airstream motorhome. So far so good, nothing has fallen apart, all of the clips are still there. BAD stains on the curtains, guessing from condensation on the windows over the years. 6 down, 4 more to go. Front Loader LG washing machine, and Oxyclean.
Thanks for all of the tips, Derek

Wow - our new curtains from Tammy at Silver Threads really made a huge difference in hour our interior looks! She did a fabulous job and was super nice to work with! I didn't trust my measurements so ended up taking out the existing curtains and sending those to her to use as a pattern. I purchased my own fabric -- I found a champagne faux shantung silk at Britex in San Francisco that ended up looking amazing. I also got a cool tapestry pattern fabric and recovered the valances with the help of a friend and a staple gun! Next project -- getting that "sofa" redone -- milk chocolate ultra suede is going to be the fabric - will look/feel good and hide the dirt!!

Note: The curtains are perfect - I just didn't get a chance to really make them look perfect before I had to take some quick pics 'cuz hubby was taking Stella back to storage!
