Turning Captain's Chair?

Any hints to a new owner of a Class B 190 - 1994 - on how to turn the Captain's chairs around toward the living area?

Thanks!

Mark

If you have the Flexsteel chairs (look for the name on the sides of the arms), lifting one of the levers at the end of the arm should make it rotate, and you might need to lean it forward, but you can rotate the passenger one so it faces into the camper. The driver's side won't go past the steering wheel, though. Not sure how it works without the Flexsteel chairs...

Flex steel seats

Hi Mark,

Sprinter is right. I never did fugure out how to rotate the driver's seat. I forgot to give you the door to the cabinet where the microwave oven is. And I also have a cutting board that fits on top of the stove. Next time you are up in Lanesboro, stop by and pick em up.

Swiveling the seat in a 1994 B190

I know this is an old thread, but I, too, am a new owner of a 1994, and I had the same question about seat swiveling until today. My seats don't say flexsteel anywhere, so perhaps they aren't the same as others have, but I think they are original to the van. The swivel lever is on the left hand side of the seat (not on the arm), and it was just freely moving without any action. Under the seat, I found a cable that is attached to that lever, but the other end was just lying on the carpet. To restore swivel action to the passenger seat, the only tool needed was a pair of needle nose pliers. Under the seat you'll see a spring and a plate with a small hole. Use the spring to give you the freedom to reach the hole with the cable end, then feed the z-shaped end of the cable through the hole in the mechanism with the pliers. Voila--seat releases and swivels over the floor-mounted seat belt (which might be the culprit that sometimes knocks the cable-end out of its hole) to face the rear, and you've got a sociable living room.
