Front seat swivel - 351ds?

Hi-
I thought I remembered reading about being able to swivel the driver and passenger seat around so that you could use them for seating - was wondering if anyone had any experience in a recent 351? I did a forum search and only turned up some old threads for georgetown, although I did find a manual for a different FR model that looks to be the same seats.....

Appreicate any info !
Thanks
Garren

my seats on the XL swivel....to get the drivers one all the way around, you have to lower the seat all the way, put the seat back all the way forward, and move the chair all the way forward to make it happen...that is with my power drivers seat....

the passengers seat on my coach only goes part of the way around, as i have the barrel chair vs. the euro recliner and ottoman... with the euro chair being movable, it would go all the way around....

I am not sure about passenger seat since we have the Euro chair right behind it but I swing the drivers side each time we use our rig. Here is how on our 2014 GT 351 DS:

Put the steering wheel all the way up


-Move the driver seat as far forward and as low as it will go


-Tilt the back forward


-Put the left armrest down as far as it will go


-Swivel the seat

Mine's a 2015 251 and both driver and passenger swivel. The passenger is a pain because you have to play around with the euro chair to get it to work.

You know, we were worried about that front seat when we first got our coach. After finding out how to get it to do a 180, we never did it again and we don't miss it. We are only four though. I move it to the 90* to get in and out, and that's about it.

I turn the drivers chair around at every stay. I use it as a semi recliner as it will only go back so far before hitting steering wheel. I also purchased a tiny storage ottoman to kick my feet up on. Works good!

Wallahhh!!!! I just ran out and tried it on our '12 and it worked perfectly. During our PDI the gentleman said it couldn't be done. Wish I would have seen this before. I would have loved to give him a little history lesson.

Figured it out! Success!

Appreciate all the help! We swiveled the chairs and unhooked the euro chair to put in between, it really opens the space. Thanks for everyone's help!

That's the same way DW sets ours. I have read that some don't care for that euro chair but that is the seat of choice for everyone that stays with us.
