You would have to purchase the quick release from them and a steering wheel that is compatible with the adapter. With this you could remove the steering wheel very easily so it would not be in the way. That would give you probably at least another 7"-8" of clearance.

my base is blue also

The steering wheel needs to be all the way up and the seat back needs to be slanted forward with the arm rest down. I will take better notes or video it and get back to you next time I'm at the MH.

Ditto for ours. Arm rest down is the key for us. You would think it should be up to be out of the way, but it has to slide under the steering wheel so it may also help to lower the chair. Even when I get the sequence right, I have to force the seat a little to squeeze it past the steering wheel.

I tried mine last night. It doesn't go 90, but maybe 80. Now it won't lock in the forward position.

Ur right. I knew what I wanted to say, but the pain meds for my back are not letting my thoughts get to the keyboard.

No prob. Just wanted to keep you within the 360 of life. Why? Because we care.

Instead of removing the chair, I'm gonna try a mirror to figure out why it won't lock in the forward position.
