Donít forget to move your front seats forward before bringing in your slide outs. They seem to be very powerful. Wife was was standing right next to drivers seat while bringing it in. Seat lost. Hydrologic won. Those guys are expensive. Jeff

Oh snap, that doesn't look right. I was going to say that I'm thankful that our switches are right at the drivers seat, but......

Good thing is that you all will never pull in the slides again without checking the seats first.

Ouch!

When driving, post mishap, do you now have the tendency to drift to the right?

When I bought my Dynasty a year ago, the drivers seat would automatically move forward whenever I activated the slide. Now the seat automatically moves backwards into the slide, when it is activated. Crazy things happen with these machines.

Wow,that's a bummer !! My slide controls are mid coach,back in the hall.I make a habit of after leveling the coach to move the drivers seat all the way forward before letting out the living room slide.I learned my lesson years ago putting the living room slide in on my HR TT with the bath door open.Pushed that sucker right off the hinges,

Well I think the seat is cheaper to fix then slide. A little positive.

Ouch! That's the reason Tiffin has started putting the front slide control right into the seat back so you have to stand right by the seat to run it in and out. That didn't stop my DW from doing the same thing but luckily all she did was rip a piece of trim off the slide.

Off topic but noticed a Dolphin at the Branson City Campground today by Taney Como, you just don't see many so you notice

There is a long thread about this issue that ran a few months ago
Luckily the Tuscany has quite a bit of room on the drivers side but you do have to watch the curb side. The switches are at the front right above the passenger seat so that has prevented some problems for sure

I am short so my seat doesn't interfere with the slide unless I move it after parking.

Hmmm...

Bring the slide in, throw a chain around the upper part of the chair and affix it to the slide, then put the slide out until the chair is "adjusted."

Macgyver?

I think I would put a 2x4 to another 2x4 on the flat wrapped in a towel to distribute the pressure near the top of the chair (just below where the top of the arm rest in the pic is) to a bottle jack (ideally a porta-power but who has one of those?) on a diagonal to the floor to the pass seat base to push the drivers chair straight.

I wouldn't use the slide - that's an expensive tool to break.
The diagonal to the pass seat base is so you don't push the sidewall out on the pass side.

should take an hour.
