I do use a folded floor mat to kneel on which helps with being on a hard surface but I wouldn't mind pushing a button instead.

Thanks. They work about the same but I don't like the look of 4 scissors jacks at the corners - tacky. More reliable though - no fuses to blow.

There is more to the Emerald Package than the nice stabilizer jacks and the electric front jack. My cranking days are over. I love the Emerald package.

Question about couch

We just picked up our 27rlws and need some help. The couch front legs are above the floor about 1 to 1 1/2 inches. When you sit at the front edge of the couch it tips forward. Also when you fold it out for a bed it also tips badly when you are doing this. Is this normal? We asked the dealer and they didn't know and they are supposed to check. Other than that we are very pleased with it. It has the free standing table and chairs and the wife wanted the king dinette and we will have to take it back to have that installed when it comes in. So we will make a list of any thing to be fixed at that time.

The dealer did not know if this is normal?! I am surprised.

No it is not normal. The sofa bed is supposed to sit properly on the floor so if the front edge legs of yours is off the floor then something is wrong. I do't know how it is fixed to the slideout but it would seem that something needs to be adjusted and the dealer should have taken care of this at the PDI.

Mine did that when I first got it. Mine had one screw in the back that had pulled out of the floor. The other side didn't even have a screw. So I replaced the one that had pulled out and added one to the other side. Then I came back and added one more to each side and have had no more problems with it.

Do you remember how long the screws you used were. I will fix it if that is all it is.
Thanks for the reply.

No, I used the same length that was already in the one side. The board they have to go thru is 5/8 or 3/4 then add another 5/8 or 3/4 to go in the floor.

A dealer who has no clue? What?
Pull the back of the sofa down and there should be 3 (three) screws on each side on the bottom of the sofa towards the back of the sofa. There should be some in the front too. Not sure how long they are as I haven't removed them. It's quite possible they were over tightened and the heads popped off. I have to remove my screws and slide the sofa about 1/4" as it hits the wall of the camper. Doesn't do it as bad since I removed the air bed. I had thought about taking the entire sofa off the slide and removing the silly looking front legs. Since they don't have a purpose, I thought the legs would look better in a drawer in my garage.

Looks like sofa problems are common with this model.
