    sofa sleeper

    The sofa sleeper in our 305RE has "ears" at the foot when opened out. Any ideas on how to use normal sheets? Ears get in the way of fitted sheets and there's no place to tuck in flat sheets. Help!

    We used standard Queen fitted sheets and had no problem with the "ears".

    The fitted sheets I use have elastic all around the edge. It seems hold well on the couch. I believe we use a full size fitted sheet.

    is there a trick that we are missing when you roll the sofa bed out to keep your head from going down at the top of the bed? I remember someone saying about a way to fix the issue, but can't remember what it was. Any help would be appreciated.

    We are going to remove metal legs and cut ends off -just enough to make bed level. Then will drill new holes so bolts fit to keep legs attached. Hope this helps.

    Our's was too high at the foot when we purchased it. We removed the bolts, adjusted it, and reinserted the bolts. Problem solved.

    See related thread under " Loving my new GD 303"
    I had to cut the legs to get enough adjustment to get to level.

    That is our issue as well so I need to shorten the legs and drill new bolt holes. Will do so as soon as Reflection is back from having wheel bearings replaced. Ken
