Glad others feel the seat slants to one side. I thought my butt was out of alignment!

I find the overall comfort of the seat to be pretty good. The cheap vinyl covering sucks, but other than that, it's ok.
I am having the same problem, drivers seat leans to the right. When you put the washers on, did you have to do it from under the coach? I pulled the carpet away from the seat base and there are caps covering the bolts How did you do it, please, I am unable to get under the coach.

I have found the front seats to be very comfortable but then I do have a bit of extra padding in that area, my problem is the faux leather covering is disintergrating and I would like to replace the seat covers on both front seats, can anyone tell me if I can get new covers from the manufacturer and if so their web address or is it only availiable from FR.

I have the same problem. The seats dont breath so when i added a ventilated seat cover it also solved the angle problem.

My 2000 Georgetown had the "Leatherish" seats with microfiber seating, and it was probably the most comfortable RV seat I ever sat in.

The 2005 has all "Pleather", or whatever it is called, and I feel like I need to stand up every hour or so to let my butt breathe! (NOT that way!)

I'm going to hunt for some of those beaded thingies to see if they help.

Do they "Bunch Up", or do they behave pretty well?

Where's the best place to find 'em?

I'm going to look around right now, but would enjoy recommendations.

Moochas in advance!

Fred

We have 4 bolts holding the seat to the pedestal. We took all four bolts out and put two washers on the bolts on the right, put all the bolts back and now it is level. I agree it seems as though this would be a quality control issue. It took a 1/2" open end wrench to remove the bolts. We had to remove the four bolts to be able to tilt the seat up and put the washers in. Works fine now.

Seat not right - among other things

I too just returned from a trip from Florida to Virginia and back and thought the drivers seat leaned to the right as well. I'll try the washers to see if that helps. I have a 2012 Georgetown VE 351DS (36' bunkhouse model). The problem I had was I stepped on the stairs leaving the coach before it was fully engaged and now it retracts but not like before. It makes a loud noise as it tries to close at the very end of the closing cycle. I think I must have knocked the alignment off so the sensor does not fully seat to show the stairs are up. I looked but didn't see anything readily evident. BTW, I'm not impressed with the quality of the coach now that I've been on a couple of trips with it. Forest River does not have a QC department to verify quality before shipping evidently. The coaxial cable for the TV was not even connected to the termination block for cable TV hookup, trailer hookup electrical plug for the TOAD is the lowest point on the coach (crushed on the first gas stop) and Forest River said not their problem, etc.
