Craigslist deal of the year

The bonded(fake) leather on the loveseat-sleeper in our 2014 Avenger27RLS Touring Edition had begun to crack and peel so bad that I had put a throw over it last season. Last month I began looking at replacements for it but I just really didn't want to spend $500 for standard reclining loveseat or $1000 for a power one.
Last week while surfing Craigslist there was an ad for a Thomas Payne power reclining loveseat for $100. 1 year old, still had the "protector"wrap on the footrest. It also has heat and massage.
It turned out the seller travels for work and one side of the recliner stopped working. After finding out there would be a six week wait for a new control box, and him not knowing where he would be in six weeks, Lippert sent him a NEW recliner.
We bought the set from him, I called Lippert customer service and after getting a 20% discount, the new control box only cost us $49.36 including shipping.
Retail price on this Power Loveseat is over $900.00. The control box should be here Monday.

Your too late, we've already put it in the V-ger. Didn't think we'd get the control box so soon and we have a trip planned next weekend. But Thanks for the offer.

Lol me too.

I get a “good deal” and decide to sell....now it’s worth 1/2 what I paid for it.

Were you able to remove old and install new through door? Or do you have a toy hauler, with a BIG rear door?

The old Sleep Sofa(loveseat) bed frame had four bolts and two screws holding it in, and the back just lifted off the lower box/arms. Without the back attached the lower half almost fell apart, the back is what kept it square.
The new one has removable backs and went through the door very easy. I had planned to take pictures, but you know how it is when you're being rushed and have someone standing over you.....

Here is a picture of the New to us loveseat installed. I put the new Control box in yesterday and everything works perfect. We are very happy with the look and hope to get a few year use out of it.
