I don't have your rig, but I would guess its like mine with bolts though the floor and you might see nuts in the basement?

I removed a couch in and it was quick. Pretty straight foreword. If your couch is electric you will have to unplug the power to it. It is a bit awkward to get out the door.

the arms come off. the back comes off, and the mattress can come off. Once you get it loose and in the middle of coach, you can get to the back and see how everything is attached. slide co-pilot chair all the way back, if you have a front entry.

Assuming it is in a slide, they typically have "special" bolts that go up thru the bottom of the slide, then thru the frame of the sofa, and then have washers and nuts. Usually there are seat belts bolted to the floor behind the sofa. Sometimes you will need to disassemble the sofa to get it out the door.

How you deal with the bolts depends on what you are planning for that area after the sofa is gone.

I think I have the same arrangement as you. HWH flat floor slide with a Rest Easy couch in a Winnebago product.

Mine is just screwed down. Dozen or so screws. No bolts through the floor or anything like that.

They come apart.
1) Extend about half way ... lift up seat ... remove 4 nuts
2) Remove one screw ... the front comes off
3) Remove 4 bolts and remove arms
4) Extend all the way ... remove 4 nuts ... back comes off

I take it you are removing the sleep sofa? My last coach was a '05 Vectra 40FD and the couch had electric motors to extend the seats into the bed. If this is what you have it is very easy but takes time.

Lift a seat and you will see 4 nuts holding it to the frame. Remove the nuts and the seat will come off. Do this for the back also and the other 2 cushions. This couch can be completely disassembled in this manner making removal very easy, one part at a time.

There was someone on this forum a few months back looking for the footrests. I hope they view your post. You may be able to sell the parts.

Thanks have removed the couch. Now will place new receliners & build a new end table. I would like to know how to remove the stud bolts that are used to keep old recliner in place when moving. It seems to be a carrige bolt from botton of slide.

I removed the bolt on my old '05 Vectra. Look under the slide, under where the chair floor area. You will see the head of a carriage bolt. Get a big hammer and beat the little sucker from the top down through the floor. Once it is down to the floor level you can go back under and cut the bolt shank off. If I recall correctly, it will drop through the floor but not come out the bottom. Seal the hole under the coach with a good grade aluminum duct tape. A dremmel works good for knocking down burs.
