L- Couch removal

I am in the middle of trying to remove the front section of the couch in my 2006 23 Safari. I have removed every screw that I can see and it will not budge. Figure there most be some hidden that I am missing. Suggestions?

Never mind, I found the problem. A couple of dozen long staples tacking it all together.

They are blind holding every piece together. Just give each piece a pull/twist and they come loose. All finished for now. There are a couple of pieces of bare wood that either need to be stained or cloth covered. Probably will just stain them. Slim chance of finding matching cloth. I brought out an old Lazy Boy to check for look and fit. It is old and a bit thread bare still very comfortable, haves feeling it will stay right where it is for now. I like that I was able to leave the storage compartment/shelf at the front and the arm rest storage on the side. .

Mine had been removed before so mine didn't have the staples. Instead, there were 4 screws going from the "L" portion to the base, right where your access door is, in the picture. They were out of view and it took a while to locate them. If you need to remove that 3-drawer cabinet/table storage unit, mine counter top was caulked to the fridge wall. I thought there were screws holding it but it was just the caulk.

I've taken out everything forward of the front door. We're going to Jackson Center in June to get that floor replaced and have them search for the leak.

So, are you putting in recliners? Getting rid of the L-couch?

You've taken out the L-couch but what did you keep? Best as I can tell, you still have the storage bin under the front window. Did you cover the access hole at the bottom left? How about the couch arm on the right? Is that still there? Do you miss the under-couch storage? Did you add something else for storage up there?

Very observant. Yes to all your questions. I added a fold up table with internal storage from Camping World over the electrics wiring access port.

When you have a moment, can you snap a photo that shows the detail you describe. My wife likes the look of the L-couch but I find it extremely uncomfortable. She's short enough to fit on the "L" side against the side. I have to sit on the bed part and try to look at the TV. It's been covered in leather, which looks nice, but is not good for sitting at an angle.

I'd like to do what you've done and store the bed, but I sure would miss that storage area under the front bed. I was thinking of putting some kind of cabinet between the "L" side and a recliner or on the other side by the door.

Question for anyone who has removed the three drawer cabinet/ table storage unit next to the fridge in our 23 foot Safari. We are remodeling the forward and inside our Safari and have everything removed except that three drawer cabinet table storage unit. It is either screwed in from inside the refrigerator compartment, or it is glued in with caulk. Does anyone have any experience with this issue?

I assume I should pull the refrigerator out and see if there are screws. I'm hoping this isn't the situation but I'm also hoping that I do not destroy the Formica on the cabinet housing the fridge trying to break the caulk loose. Does anyone have a method for loosening the caulk?

Norm

How did you secure the chair to the floor, if you did at all?
