How to Remove RV Captain’s Chairs

Hey everyone, Eric here and today I’m going to be explaining how to remove RV Captain’s Chairs.  I don’t know about you but I am still very new to the RV lifestyle and find myself daunted by what turns out to be the simplest of tasks. Can you relate?

Maybe you are new to RVing, or maybe you are a seasoned vet of the road, either way I hope you find the information below to be helpful.

How to Remove RV Captain’s Chairs

Side-note: The information below will highlight how we removed the captain’s chairs in our Tiffin Allegro Open Road 32la. Almost every RV is different so please use what you can from below to complete your task, but understand that some steps may be different depending on your specific model.

You may be looking to replace your current RV driver and passenger chairs or simply need to remove them temporarily, but rest assured that it’s very easy.

Although some people choose to keep the carpet up front in their RV, we knew we wanted to replace it.

To do this we needed to remove the Flexsteel captain chairs so we wouldn’t damage them during the changes, while also creating room to lay the new flooring. Once we realized they needed to be removed my heart dropped down to my stomach. What if I can’t get them back in place? What if I break something taking them out?

It turns our neither one of those worries were warranted.

Socket Wrench

Socket Set


The first thing you want to do is lift up the skirt on the bottom of your captain’s chair.

Once you look underneath you should see there are four nuts attached to four bolts.

The next thing you want to do is look in your socket set and find the correct size for the nut (ours was 13/16).

Then proceed with removing the nuts. The bolts are attached to the coach, so once the nuts are removed the bolts will stay in place.

Before you pull the chair up and move it around you need to make sure to disconnect the power if the chair is electronically controlled.

You will want to disconnect the male wire adapter (top picture), from the female wire adapter (bottom picture).

You will also want to disconnect the seatbelt so that the chair can move freely. One note to mention is that the captain’s chair is fairly heavy and not easy to move around. You may want to have another person with you helping if you intend to move it more than a few feet in the RV.

Boom! You are done and the chair is removed. You can follow the steps above in reverse order to put the chair back.
