Lowered clothes rod in closet - was too high & I hated the slotted factory rod.

Hated the "high" awning where I had to use a ladder to adjust it down, so with stiff wire and a bungie, I reach up, hook the wire, and, using the bungie, pull the awning down & then attach the bungie to the wall.

How'd you get the drivers chair to turn around?

Did you re-bolt it to the floor? Safety concerns?

I just "had" to make the driver's chair turn around to use, so I removed 3 of the bolts (2 rear & right front) where the chair bolts to the turning part.
This lets me swing the rear of chair away from the steering wheel and turn it around.
This is not dangerous because the seat belt attaches to the turning part.

Interesting. We've never had a problem with either seat. My wife figured it out. Pulls a bottom flap and releases something under the seat. We struggled for awhile until she figured it out. FR provides no instructions, like most everything else.

Lower the seat
Tilt the wheel forward
Tilt the seat back forward
Slide the seat as far toward the steering wheel as possible.
Rotate the seat
Some seats also need the seat bottom to tilt forward too

This is for a power drivers seat

Do you have a part number off of the door closer?

Glad you asked - the gas filled rod at the bottom of the door actually opens the door instead of closing it. Here is the info:
Mfg: IGC (Industrial Gas Spring)
Name: Volumeline
Model: 89Z100211XX0067
Specs: 15 lbs pressure, 13" closed, 20" open
Their phone 815-553-0253 Romeoville, IL
The other device we use to open the screen door from inside is a small black plastic lever mounted on a grommet - I bought this at our local RV store.
