    Hi I'm new to all this. Can anyone give me some help on how to set up the middle bed. We've pulled it out but there seems to be a piece missing. And is there anything that goes under Neath to support the pull outs.
    Thank you in advance

    do you mean the one converted from the dinette ?

    and do you mean the bit between the slideout end extensions is the part missing.

    if so there should be a separate tri-folded cushion, same depth as the seating cushions, with a solid base board in the centre part which spans the gap between the slide out bits,

    the whole cushion fits on the extensions

    there are no supports for the slideout bits...just relying on the canterlever effect of the struts

    without it you will need to make something to fit.

    Yes it is the dinette bed.
    Where would I find the trifold cushion?
    The 3
    Small upright cushions from the rear lounge
    Seem to fit the gap, but there is nothing to bridge it.
    Looks like I will have to make something up.
    Thank you for your help

    found mine under the rear seating/outside locker but it was a long, long time before i realised what they were for as we never had need to make a bed there.

    a length of plywood, cut to fit the gap, would do and would store under the dinette seat or behind the dinettes front seat back cushion when not in use.

    if you are happy using other cushions then this would be the easiest option.
