We replaced the barrel chair with a Euro-lounger and Ottoman. Now both seats can face the opposite direction.
OK I understand the steps to move chairs forward and back but is thier something under the chair that I must pull to unlock it to rotate? or does it magically release in a particular point?

Thanks

I have turned my seats around.
I find that the drivers seat back is to erect to be comfortable.
The passenger seat is OK but you can't see the TV from there.

Iggy: Check down under the seat you will find the leaver.

On our last trip I finally rotated both front seats in our 2011 378. At first I thought the drivers seat would not rotate completely. Then I realized I needed to run the power seat forward (now toward the rear of the coach). There was a lot of travel left and I could then move the seat back to a comfortible position. The tv was viewable and the room was very livable with the extra seating. We moved the recliner back toward the kitchen.

We probably won't turn the seats for an overnite, but it is worthwhile for longer stays.

Each seat has a lever on the side that releases the seat to rotate it. Passenger seat has a lever in the middle of the front to move that seat back and forth. In the case of the driver's seat I had to lower it down as far as it will go and actually turn it towards the outside and loop the seat belt over it. I had to move the back of the seat forward and play with the front to rear adjustment as I turned. Personally for a weekend trip it too much of a pain but if we're going for a week then I'd spin them if our daughters are going with us, but most of the time it's just my wife and myself so we really don't need to turn them.
