Sliding glass door

We have removed the couch in our 5th wheeler Forest River XLR and have bought a new couch but can't get through the door. We are trying to remove the sliding glass door and screen to get the couch in but we are having major problems. Don't want to remove the entire frame if possible!! Any suggestions would be great !!!!

Will it fit by removing one side of the door? If so, the sliding portion can be removed by raising the door up and pulling it out at the bottom. If you need to remove the stationery section there is ( I think ) 4 screws to remove and and it comes out

Did you ever get a reply? I'm having the same problem. Most of the couches
have removable backs, not the one I bought.

The last couch I bought for home the back didn't come off but it is in 3 sections with metal bars underneath, unscrew the bars move the individual sections.
Take a look underneath, especially if it is a recliner.

The OP hasn't been on the forum in 2-1/2 years. I doubt you'll get an answer.

Sliding Glass Door

The glass door can be removed. With direction from Bob I wanted my door to open left to right vs right to left. The screen door comes off by adjusting the the little screws at bottom of screen. This retracts the wheel on bottom side. You will have to re due when you re-install. The sliding glass door also comes off but you need a screw driver to assist getting those little wheels up and over track. This is a two person job. The stationary glass has two L brackets at top and bottom that have to be removed. The glass is in its rubber casing. This is where it gets sticky but can be done. The glass will come out of those rubber casing. Be carefull not to break glass. When you put all back together you will have to put the rubber back in frame to get ready for glass. Once ready put some dawn dish liquid on rubber. This will allow glass to slide back into rubber casing. Once glass is back in the rubber casing you can put the end back on also applying dawn so it will slide on. Then put brackets back in to place and screw it up. Every thing I just explained to you I did this past Friday but what I did it invert my doors so when slide out is in I can walk into my garage. This all took me about two hours taking my time.

Thanks for the reply.
I looked at several couches before I purchased mine. I needed a wall huger.
Most said the back of the couch would be removable and would need
26" of clearance. My door is 28". Plenty of room? When I received the couch, I looked at it and thought oh no. I looked at the ad again and it said needs 36". My mistake.

I purchased the Ashley Leather loveseat.
The wall huger design makes it very hard to remove the backs.

I removed my sliding glass door and then removed the other door that's not a slider. Had to loosen several of the framing screws.
Finally was able to come in through the rear ramp and place the couch in the slide out.

We love it. Now what to do with the large C shaped couch with the blow up mattress in it?
