Replacement Switch for Driver's Seat

Good Morning Everyone and Merry Christmas to all my RV Friends,

Well we're planning a trip in January and I have to get one issue repaired before we leave. I need to replace the electric control switch on the Driver's Seat. Seems I the switch won't move the seat forward or back.
My question is, Does anyone have a replacement part number and a contact as to where I can order one?
Thanks in advance for all the help

I suggest you contact the seat manufactor for a replacement. However the motors are most often the culprit when seats won't move, have you checked that out?

Motor works on all the functions except for forward and backward. I have no idea who the seat manufactor is. Could not find a name anywhere.

If you have a plug to wiring for seat check the connector for wires mine will loosen up when turning seat toward the living area, the wires on some plugs are just pushed into crimp clip and wire ground or battery will fall out of clip.
POP control switch out of seat and check wiring behind it.

The seat is made by Flexsteel. This is the contact info for Flexsteel:

Flexsteel Industries Inc
7227 Central Ave
Riverside, CA 92504
(951) 354-2440
www.flexsteel.com

I've been there for repairs on the driver's seat for my previous 2001 Alpine Coach. It is the same manufacturer for the 2007 Alpine Coach.

I've had the same problem before and found it to be the wire crimp or in my case wire nuts. One of the wires had pulled almost all the way out by turning the seat around. And it wasn't visible. I gently pulled each wire until I found the culprit. It was completely loose.

I can't believe they use something as cheap as wire crimps & wire nuts. It should be a simple plugin connector.

I MISTAKENLY said, " It is the same manufacturer for the 2007 Alpine Coach." I meant to say "... for the 2006 Alpine Coach.", which is what I have.
