Driver's seat manufacturer

I am trying to fix the rotate switch on the driver's seat, I must have wanted it too bad as the switch snapped in two when I was trying to adjust the seat. It looks repairable, but I don't know who makes these chairs. Any thoughts?

I fear 10 year old plastic is just not up to snuff, I have so far broken half of the window shade cord retainers trying to adjust the shades, one of the two clips for the sliding closet doors, someone beat me to the inside door lock, it's snapped off and won't turn from the inside even if the plastic switch piece was still there, only works with the key outside. Now the seat, what's next?

-Randy

Not sure why they show rotated in my preview

I did however find what looks like the replacement for the broken switch above:

www.coachsupplydirect.com The webpage identifies this cable as from a FlexSteel seat.

I think that requires a quarter inserted into the coin slot.

LOL, I feel your pain. I don't mind working on this stuff if the parts availability wasn't such a mystery to me.

My captain's chair has the control unit with a bunch of exposed wires (still insulated but out of the jacket). But I wonder about having a vibrator/heater because it's already pretty comfortable driving down the road. zzzzzzzzz

Just to follow up, it appears that I have finished breaking plastic parts in the RV, knock wood. AND I just tested my epoxy job and it appears that I failed to glue the whole captain's chair to itself. Instead I only glued the original knob back onto the lever that controls the chair rotation.

I just used JB Weld for plastic. It comes in a dual syringe and you spew it onto paper for mixing and then dab it on the plastic pieces. I held it in place for 5 minutes and it was still wobbly, but I left it alone for the last 3 months and now it is rock solid. Not sure how long it would have actually taken to cure.

Shockingly, something is going my way. I purchased the other plastic pieces I mentioned having broken and replaced them too.
