New lexington owner

Just purchased 2008 Lexington 255DS GTS. Have the couch option with table stored underneath. Also under the couch are 2 padded pieces about 3' long and have a flat metal piece attached. Can anyone tell me what they are for? I have had several RVs, but can't figure out what these are for.

Welcome from Madison Alabama. Sorry I can't offer any help, but I do hope you have fun with your new RV.

The foam strips are probably fillers for making the dinette into a bed. Try it.

Yep, pull the armrests up before you open the jack knife and those fillers go in their place.

Couch parts

If these are what I have, they are for extending the length of the couch a few inches when it is folded down into a bed. I took me a while...

In our 283 GTS they go in at the ends of the sofa when it is folded down to complete the bed.
