2010 Cardinal 3625RT weight limit when replacing slideout sofa
A group of us have been slowly renovating a 2010 Cardinal 3625RT for the last year to be used as a new home for a friend who lost his (uninsured) home in a wildfire. So far all new paint, hardware, lights, plumbing, furniture/bed, vinyl flooring, tires/ batteries, roof, compartment locks, and residential refrigerator. Replaced the original entertainment center in the rear with a convertible sofa. Now want to build a new desk/entertainment center in the 6' section next to the pantry on the kitchen slideout. Looking for help on 2 questions. First, does anyone know the weight of the original 72" hide-a-bed sofa in this model? We don't recall exactly how it worked, but it wasn't a jackknife but maybe had an air mattress. Just remember it was heavy and filthy. The estimated weight of the new design is about 220 lbs, so hope it would be about an even swap. On the same slideout we replaced the old 8 cu ft Norcold with a 165 lb 10 cu ft residential refer so think lost weight there. Messaged FR support but NA yet. Second, what is best way to anchor the new unit to the metal studs in the back wall? Thanks for your help.
