Couch question.

Hi all, just got a new (to me) 2008 Lexington 300ss. Love it! I have a question I hope is not too silly. What are the two upholstered bars that are stored under the couch? I have no clue. Thanks

Welcome to the forums! Hopefully someone will be able to answer your question about the bars.

Well, in this case, a picture is worth a thousand words. However, it sounds like they may be "slide stops". If they have rubber ends, that is likely what they are. You put them on either end of the slide when it is in to ensure the slide does not go anywhere during travel.

That would be my guess without seeing them.

If they are slide bars, upholstered is very fancy.

Here is a photo of my bars in use. The bars are only provided for slide systems that need them. If your (NEW) camper was not provided with slide locks, your system does not require them. If it was, then please find out where they go. My camper came with "targets" on the walls.

Note: If you have a used camper, all bets are off. Many campers who do not understand the need for the locks either throw them away or use them for other camp chores from "cargo bars" in the pickup to front landing gear braces.

No, they're not slide stops. They are almost as long as the couch,(they fit underneath), they are covered in the same material as the couch. They are about 3"x4" wide and padded. Each has a metal blade, about 3"x3" sticking out near the end. They are taped together as if from the factory. Any guesses?? I'll take a pic, but I'm not sure how to post it.

Save the picture to your computer. Using the "Go Advanced" button for replying to a post you will see the paper clip icon.

After clicking on the paperclip icon you should see "Upload file from your computer" along with a "Browse" option. Once you have selected the pictures using the browse option click "Upload" and then click "Close this window".

You can preview your picture by using the "Preview Post" button.




There are usually more than one way to do things on this website. I do the directions above but after closing the window will go back and click on the paperclip icon and double click the attachment so I can see it listed in the text box. To view the pic I still need to use the "preview post" button.

I have similar bars in my 2004 Georgetown motorhome. Mine are used when the couch is flipped into the bed position. These bars slip into the metal slots that hold the end arms for the couch.
This gives the bed a little larger flat surface for sleeping.

Roy, I think you are right. The camper is in the shop getting the auto-step module changed, but I will try it when it gets home. What do you do with the couch arms? Will they fit under the couch? Thanks again, Roy!!!

Here's the beast! I had a Fleetwood Searcher for the last 16 years, so I feel like I've hit the jackpot. Absolutely LOVE this camper. We have a regional band and play 2-5 nites a week. This is our new bandwagon. YAY!! Thanks all.
