I was shortest or second shortest all through grade school and High school then I had a growth spurt at 18 and got to 5'7". So I know all about it I thought I would have a little fun. Sorry guys.

Our 2014 tilts and telescopes also. Might just need a good tug if it was never used. Try pulling up or pushing down ( in case it is up ) after depressing small pedal.

Ok as to moving my seat forward. I add a couple pictures. There is no way that this can ever slide from under the washers. The front two bolts have it secure. ATTACH]94625[/ATTACH]

The engineer in me would like to see one solid plate capturing both bolts and across the seat plate.

I know what you are saying. And I may get around to doing that. But in no way can it move unless the front two bolts shear. Not sure what would make them shear ??

Holy Smokes! I just went outside and checked, and mine telescopes also! I have put 18k miles on it this year and that would have made my driving more comfortable! I need a facepalm emoji...

Thanks for the info!

As far as I know, the steering wheel on all Berkshires tilt and telescope. Mine does on my 2014 and did on my 2008 as well. That is how Freighliner builds them.

Rich,
Definitely!! Yours should telescope. Press the pedal to tilt the steering wheel and pull up on the wheel.

I don't think Rich trusts us. Have we ever led you wrong?
