Co-Pilot seat rocks

The YL likes to recline the co-pilot seat in our 2007 KSDP. Unfortunately, when the seat is in full recline, it rocks.

I have had my RV dealer check to see if anything was loose, and I told Flexsteel, but they said they knew nothing.

I figure I am not the only one with this issue and wonder if anyone has come up with a solution?

Have not heard of problem on forum, maybe you should find a Flexsteel dealer for their advise after looking at it.
Does it normally rock when up right. some chairs would have a brake to stop rocking, if you wanted to stop.

There is a large nut over a bearing plate that needs to be torqued correctly. Too loose the chair will rock. Too tight and it will cause the bearings to bind and fail. Remove the four bolts that hold the seat in place and remove the seat. On mine (2004 DSDP) there was a yellow sticker on the plate on how to properly torque the nut.
