<span class="ev_code_PURPLE"> Has anyone else had an issue with the passenger seat on Class A's ?? The seat is pretty loose and rocks back and forth. I looked underneath the little skirt and the base is not moving at all. I didn't see any screws or bolts I could tighten. Any ideas ?? </span>

Look under the wheel well. With my Sightseer, I see 4 nuts and the ends of bolts under the wheel wells.

Relax, drive safely, and enjoy God's creations.

My driver seat was a bit loose on the pedestal during the first year. My dealership tightened it up, but I don't know what they did. If the base is not moving when it rocks, I don't see how the bolts that hold it to the floor would be the problem ...it would have to be under the seat itself.

I have had both seats get loose -- in my case I could use wrench, -- take off top nut -- tighten remaining nut -- re-install nut you took off and tighten (this is a locking nut) -- you should be good to go -- 5 min. fix

Shannone, As you know we are on our maiden voyage, but haven't had any issues with our passenger seat, but the driver's seat does rock a little. I'll let you know if I find a fix.

"Senior moment" I thought the back and forth rocking of my chair was a built in movement to smooth out the ride. Sort of like the seats in commercial trucks with shocks. Live and learn.

Thanks guy's for bringing it up.

There is a nut at the base of the chair which connects the chair to the swivel portion of the base. Tighten that and you should be OK. Mine has loosened a couple of times on my MoHo.

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Thanks everyone...Chad is going to get out there again tomorrow and take another look and see if he can reach anything to tighten.

It hasn't always been a problem..it just seems to have worked it's way loose after 9000 miles. It is getting to the point though where it is a little uncomforable and sure isn't helping my motion sickness </span>

Shannone;

I had the same issue you describe in a 97 Adventure. I removed the seat and tightened the self locking nut mentioned in previous posts. I don't remember anymore how I removed the seat. I remember I lubricated the swivel when I had it apart.

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Chad was able to figure it out this morning. He said there is a bolt in the center of the base that attaches the seat bottom to the base and that bolt had worked it's way loose. He went ahead and tightened both chairs and now they are nice and firm. It did need a special size wrench that he had to go dig up out in the pole barn...it wasn't one of the common ones in his onboard tool kit. </span>

Shannone thanks for the report back, that's something I'll log in memory if we start having issues with ours.
