I just cut the middle legs down 1.5" and it's much better. Not perfect but I think it's sleepable short term. Still slopes about 3" from the front to back and the bar underneath is uncomfortable but it will work until I figure something else out.

What two holes are you talking about? Is it in the carpet, picture 1?

As soon as I head from the supplier I'll let you know what their response was.

Hey guys I discovered this issue back in Febuary and considered several options. I ended up having Dynamax send me the legs that were originally on the couch before being removed. The couch fits very securely and now works perfectly. The lack of legs on the furniture my also explain the dinette being lower than normal in relation to table. The easiest fix there is securing the latch before the table reaches full height. P. Werner

Yes, picture one and two. There is a hole in each side. I looked under the slide out and it looks like there were carriage bolts in there at one time. I shot some silicone in there for now just to keep critters out.

That is more than likely what they were. When we switched from ensemble (sofa dinette combined) to a separate sofa and dinette (for bigger sleeping area and more functional dinette), I think they had pre-drilled for seatbelt locations. Those ultimately ended up moving and they never filled them with a carriage bolt.

I went through my dealer but I also called Dynamax and they would send the legs as well. It was an easy fix and now works great.

Well, the issue is our supplier no longer stocks sofa feet. I asked again what their solution was.

Brian-would you happen to know the approximate length/height of the legs that would be attached to the sofa if not used in MH setup? I'm trying to figure out how high I need to raise the sofa to get the hide-a-bed laid out straight, and new L-brackets to try and use the same screw-holes. Thanks.

ok..here is what I got from the supplier.

Originally the sofa legs were about 3.75". This seemed to make the sofa bed flow downhill, made it difficult to secure the sofa to the floor and it sat too tall for shorter people. At some point, someone suggested taking those legs off to solve those issues...but as with any good deed, it did not go unpunished. That made the sofa sit low....which shorter people are just fine with...but when made into a bed, makes the bed slope towards the heads.

So, in a perfect world, they say tell me that 2" feet under the sofa is the way to go.
