Hey, I have a 2016 Prostar and the seat has a Swivel Switch/lever under the seat right hand side...well it will swivel only a few inches/degrees and then the drivers door stops the complete swivel because of armrest. No matter how I have the armrest or seat back positioned (seat back all the way forward). I just can't swivel the chair towards the sleeper....is there something I'm missing? A design flaw? Any help would be appreciated...thanks

I have a 2014 prostar and have the same question. I'm guessing it's something simple. Look forward to some replies on this

Heck I don't know but...I'd try opening the door, swiveling it around and then close the door again.

You might also just need to slide the seat all the way forward first. LOL!

Ruminator, you aren't the only one! When I got into my first KW, I had no idea how to release the arm rests so they could tilt down and be useful. I gave up and posted my question here.

Answer: you lift the arm up, and that releases it to flop down!

LMAO! No worries, It's just kind of "what I do". LOL!

Actually I've been a machinist / manufacturing engineer most of my life. Even as a kid, I could just look at something and I instantly knew how it worked and how to take it apart and fix the problem. I can look at a blue print and I instinctively know the type of machine(s) and what type of tooling I'll need to manufacture it. I credit spending summers on my grandfathers farm out in South Dakota for most of it. Being out in the boonies so to speak, you couldn't just run down to the local repair shop or hardware store. If he needed to fix something, he learned how to fix and or manufacture it himself. I've been fascinated by machinery and how it works ever since. :^P

Now I've got my sights on becoming a truck driver. Go figure... LOL!
