Smile Manuals

I went onto the Dutchmen web site to look for a manual. Is there anyone who has a manual for the 2014 Infinity 3610RL. I have a manual but it appears to be a general manual for a line of RV's as apposed something that is more representative of the trailer I have ?

I bought my 2014 trailer thinking the living area has two recliners and a sofa bed. I was shocked to find after the purchase there is apparently no sleeper sofa. There is nowhere where I can find places for people to sleep other than in the bedroom. I pulled on the sofa thinking I just did not know how to pull it out. Am I missing something and has anyone else had the same issue ?

The existing sofa has two sections a small one and a larger one. I assumed the larger one is a sleeper but apparently it may not be a pull out sleeper. Am I missing something ?.

Anyone know a way I can purchase a pullout sofa bed for a very good price. There is plenty of room for one ?

Yep, that's it; one generic manual to cover everything they make. If you want a real manual, one that is specific to your rv, you're going to have to buy a motorhome. That's what I've found.

Well not true back in 2003 when I bought my 5th wheel Teton it's specific to my trailer. Of course it did cost more than my 2014 Voltage.

Oh I wished I could afford a motorhome. Way out of my price league.

Thanks

Generic manuals... unless you write your own as you discover things...

Lloken, look under the cushions on the coach and see if there's a compartment that might be holding an air mattress. Another place is under the bed. Lift up on the mattress platform and see if they hid the air mattress under there. These Infinity's come with a pretty good air mattress that pumps up into a queen bed and attaches to the sofa. Not the best of world's but better than nothing.

Yes, check that for a setup that might work for an air mattress, however I will say that one indication of you having one is that the manufacturer will include an air mattress so if you have one it should be in a box and feel like a brick. Also the documentation for these trailers is horrible and Dutchmen doesn't give a rodents buttocks about it.

Thank you for your response. I'll look harder at the sofa and see what is uo with it and look for a mattress.

I uploaded a picture in my gallery but I'm not sure you can view it.

I can see the picture but it of the trailer and not the sofa (couch). I am going to take a shot here and hope that yours is the same as mine, in which case, it is somewhat different in how it opens compared to a regular hide-a-bed type couch. I am going to get the DW to take a series of pics of it being opened. HOPEFULLY, it will be the same and the mystery will be solved for you.

It is raining at the moment, but after this rain shower moves along, I'll open up the trailer take the pics.

Rain ended (for now)! For some reason the forums do like me posting these links as images, so I will just post the links.

First, remove the back two big cushions and set them aside.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/s11lvkrhwp...11.52.jpg?dl=0

There is a handle there that we normally keep tucked back in so it does not look so much like, well, a hidden bed.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9jlb2n0ek2...12.24.jpg?dl=0

Just grab it an pull straight up. You will see some legs appear.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jtemg92h2z...12.51.jpg?dl=0

Just keep pulling up and out, making sure the legs are extended down and are vertical to the bed.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zczgs9qliz...13.16.jpg?dl=0

Next you can just flip down the back and 'voila!' a bed!. We then put the big cushions back in place as a headboard. Since it is mostly our granddaughter using the bed the length is not critical. If an adult uses the bed we just leave the cushions on the table for the night.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/3rf0cwlj1i...13.38.jpg?dl=0

If this was not help to you, that is OK, perhaps it will help someone else. I have to admit it did take us a bit to figure it out as it wasn't quite like a normal hide-a-bed.

The newer Infinity's have changed (went in one at the Florida show this past January) They've also, changed all Infinity floor plans, You'll find that they don't have any of the 8-9 original floor plans from 2012 & 2013.

I realize that, which seems a shame, but did not know whether or not they changed the actual furniture styles as well. These manufacturers seem to keep as much consistent as they can to save the $$$.

I saw your hide a bed. Where you bed is located next to the dining area there are swivel recliners and along the wall under the front widow is another recliner and sofa attached to each other. I'll try to up load a picture

After seeing that picture I did a little research. I would now be willing to bet you do NOT have a hide-a-bed. Two reasons enter that. First, Infinity site lists an air mattress as an option, and second RV Trader lists a used unit as sleeping just 2.

I think you'll just have to get yourself a good quality air mattress and call it good.
