Driver's chair

We have just purchased a new Georgetown 360. We moved "up" from a 2003 Bounder 35E. In our Bounder my husband could turn his chair completely around to allow him to sit in the chair and visit when we have company. He has not been able to turn his chair around in the 360. He got it to turn as far as pointing to the passenger chair. Anybody out there know the secret to turning it completely around or is he right and it will not turn around? Thanks for any input.

Got to the farmer's market and buy a chicken. Do a voodoo ritual while concentration on the captain's chair. LOL

I had the same issue. I'm getting better at each campsite. It will not turn around without some force through the steering wheel. Someone was kind enough to post the exact procedures which are embedded in my subconscious and only available when needed.

He's concerned that the rubbing of the chair against the steering wheel will damage the leather. He has been unable to move the column forward enough to prevent this. So other than doing the voodoo chicken dance, is there a solution. Wouldn't bother me to try the dance but he 's not inclined to do do.

As I recall on my 378 , you must first move the seat all the way back, raise the armrests, and rotate the seat. About half way around, you must move the seat all the way forward, which is now away from the steering wheel. It still rubs the wheel, but not too bad. I think the seat back must be tilted forward (now away from the wheel) too. Doing the chicken voodoo dance doesn't hurt anything either.

I think that's the way we do it in our 360.
I have to tilt the seat back forward.

1. "must first move the seat all the way back"
2. "raise the armrests"
3. tilt steering wheel up
4. "rotate the seat" toward passenger
5. "About half way around, you must move the seat all the way forward" (toward passenger)
6. complete rotation
7. return seat back to upright position, lower arm rests
8. move seat belt

Anyone have a better way or a correction to ohiobill's method?

Sbryant, if he's concerned about the leather rubbing against the steering wheel he could turn the coach on and have the wheel turn with the seat. Either way, the faux leather is pretty tough stuff.

As mentioned times before......

Not all Motorhome floor plans allow the drivers seat to turn all the way around. It depends on where the actual mount to the floor was positioned. There's no real trick to it.

It either will or won't turn all the way around.

Sorry.

Our 2008 374 was a challenge, however, place a towel on the area rubbing the steering wheel and it will take a little effort, but it will turn completely..just remember how you did it so you can go back and be able to drive!
