Sanibel 3901

Just took delivery on a 2015 Sanibel 3901. Just fell in love with it. Haven't taken it on a trip yet but am looking forward to doing that. Perplexed about the couches in the living area. Can't seem to figure out how to make them into a bed.

Also anyone know why it only has 1 handle to drain the holding tanks?

I have a 2014 3600 and there are 3 tanks/handles. 1 for the gally grey tank, one for the bathroom grey tank and one for the black tank. Since this is a Front Living, my guess is the handles for the Bathroom grey and black tanks are in another location rather then up in the UDC. Looking at pictures of the 3091 it looks like your sewer connection is behind the axles which is not the case on the other Sanibel models, they are all pretty close to the Docking Center. I would peak around the sewer connection, I bet you will find the handles for the bathroom grey and black tanks.

As for the couches I just lift up the seat cushions and its a fold out bed, just lift up and the bed starts to unfold like a normal hide a bed couch at home.

See my photos in the below thread for the sofa bed operation.

thanks for the responses. I did find 2 more handles near the sewer drain. One for the black and one for the bathroom gray water. As for the couches, still not sure about those. My wife and I fooled with them today and may have figured out something. This is an awesome coach and Im really glad we got it.

I have same problem with the couches. Cannot firgure them out. Impossbile it seems to make them into a bed. They don't pull out like a normal sofa bed does. Instead you go to flip open the leg part and them try and place cushions in certain positions like a puzzle. I was told I could fold them both out to sleep 4 adults there and I cannot. My dealer could not even firgure it out at first. I'm working with them currently to fix.

3901 Couches

Spoke with customer service today and they told me I was outta luck on getting help with useless sofas. I told them the internet is a big place for upset people to bitch about poor product. I still cant believe they put those piece of crap sofas in a $75000 coach!

I feel for you. I got the same "cheap" aweful couches also and am still bitching. Never seen such a mess in a so called high end unit. I keep getting the same excuses. They try and tell me the mast people want them. BS We have 2 that you can't even open at same time cause they hit each other. The sales people are so nice when taking your $$ and it makes you wonder why the Head Office won't listen when we the customer talks. I'm not giving up yet. But not sure this company is in my future unless they help out.
