Thanks, yes Iím looking for something to cover the horizontal caulk line.

Very nice Job !!! Maybe Chair Rail would work as trim ???
We will buy another RV without some sort of seating other than the Damm dinette set !!!

Thanks Wolverine!
A chair rail is an option. Still thinking it over.

We have another decision now. Someone wants to buy the dinette. First I have no idea what to charge, second what happens when we eventually sell the trailer and the buyers want the dinette? Need to think this over.

It works really well on removing sticky stuff in all kinds of situations.

VERY elegant solution. There is a nice space on the side or behind even to store a couple of TV trays to eat on, as someone else suggested.

If Goo Gone, which is an orange oil based product, does not remove the caulk line you can try Goof Off. Be careful and test it in an inconspicuous area first though because it is petroleum based and could possibly damage the substrate. I think the paneling is covered with vinyl wallpaper so I would think it would be OK, but Id test it first some place hidden to be sure.

Yes, even though these recliners are not wall-huggers it is easy to slide the loveseat forward to the edge of the dinette carpet, the top layer which moves with the slide. From that point fully reclined in an almost flat position is approximately 6 ft. top of recliner to bottom of my feet. This leaves us a little under 3 ft. for someone to go around and access fridge, bathroom or pantry. These recliners, and perhaps other lazy boy recliners, are two functions, i.e. the seat and back move separately from the foot rest. Iím sounding like a lazy boy salesperson now Full disclosure, Iím not.

We will push the unit back and strap it with a web-strap when traveling. I think they could act as sleepers if one chooses therefore not losing the dinette sleeping functionality.

I tried Goof Off and it removed the finish and left a white spot. I only did a small place. When I get to the store Iím going to pick up some Goo Gone and give it a try.

I'd love to do this, but I really don't want to lose all that storage.

I love what youíve done, in the micro lite (21fbrs) we have this nasty jackknife, it was made only to be replaced. My question is whatís under the middle? On the floor of ours is the slide motor, dead center. If that is air space it will work. Hope to get into it this spring and get something we can live with. Anyone done this to a micro?

The console has a solid back and lower drawer. When I removed the drawer this is what the inside looks like. The open space in the center showing the carpeted floor is 13” w x 10” d. They do sell the pinnacle recliners separtely.

Thanks Tigg, looks like it might work, the two bottom plys, the front would work over the motor, the back will have to go, for the drive gear is there. Again thanks, we need to resolve this in the spring, what we have now is not tolerable

can't be done, the slide motor is under the Jackknife sofa, i have looked at several options and have yet to find one that will work, let me know if you find anything that will work

I purchased a couple of floor chairs when we had a trailer with the slide motor under the jacknife. Better than the jacknife but not great.

Added a wall-paper border today with some rust, brown and greens to match loveseat and curtains to hide caulk line. Second photo shows recliner fully reclined which gives us about 30Ē to go around to access fridge etc.
