Driver Side Chair Turn Around?

I cannot get my driver side chair to turn around completely. It hits the steering wheel. I move it all the way back with the power controls, but it won't turn around. What am I missing lol?

NEVERMIND! I searched the forum and found the answer elsewhere! Chair turned around!

Here's how I did it.
Tilt steering wheel all the way forward.
Move the chair all the way back.
Do not raise arm rest, keep it in the lowered position.
The chair back must be tilted forward all the way.
Turn chair clockwise
My coach is a 2013 378 XL

If needed I will take pictures

Move the chair all the way forward not all the way back.
It rubs fairly hard just use your fingers to push in the foam as it is trying to get passed the steering wheel. At first i was scared i would break or rip something but it won't.

I stand corrected. Thanks Moorio. I should never write from memory.
I just checked it out.
Tilt chair forward.
Move chair 3/4 the way forward.
Then turn.
It may even help to start turning the chair when it is 1/2 the way forward then as you turn slide the chair move it forward 3/4 of the way.
After you do it one time it is really easy.

The plate of the pedestal which is mounted to the floor of the Georgetown, is NOT in the same position for all Georgetowns.

It is positioned arbitrarily by someone in the assembly area.

I guarantee that others (along with myself) CANNOT turn the driver's seat all the way around by using ANY of your tips for doing so.

Any other Georgetown owners out there that can't do the turn around?

I'm not trying to be a threadkiller either.

That is a good point. Mine is on a Workhorse chassis and maybe the steering columns are different from year to year and Ford vs Chevy. Yes that would be nice to see if anyone else can't get theirs turned around.

I thought most Georgetowns were based in the Ford F53 chassis.

But, the worst case scenario I read on one of these forums (maybe not Forest River) was an owner that could turn his seat around, HOWEVER.....his steering wheel was NOT directly dead centre of his driving seat.

Others have reported their seat cannot be moved far enough forward (if they're short in the legs) or far enough rearward (if they're long in the legs)

My driver's seat only turns a few inches past 90 degrees towards the interior, and the most comfortable position has the left arm rest in the up position and I use the steering wheel as my left arm rest.

Just gotta be careful not to honk the horn.
