Make sure the seat is in the rearmost position and the steering wheel is forward and in the upmost position. It should clear. You can also spray the cable,track and pull lever under the seat for easier operation. WD40 seems to work best. Hope this helps.

Almost forgot. If you coach has a slide out right behind the drivers seat make sure it is out. On my Endeavor if the slide is in the seat can't go back far enough to clear the steering wheel.

LarPar2012....If I recall on some, place the steering wheel all the way up, slide the seat all the way back. Tilt the seat backrest all the way forward and put the armrests down. Now try and turn it. The armrests need to be down so that the wiidth of the seat back is narrow enough to squeeze past the wheel. You may need to play with the seat backrest position a little as you do it, so that the armrests are just under the wheel as you turn it.

Do not try and swivel the drivers seat a full 360!!! You just might rip the electrial connection a part. On ours I need to have the steering wheel in the full forward tilt, and the drivers seat will clear it.

You wind up moving the seat one way to clear one obstruction, another way to clear another and so on and when you are done it faces back to the living quarters and you head for the kitchen.. Cause you need something that's in the fridge.
