Swivel chairs

Can the swivel chairs, driver and passengers, be lubricated. They rotate awful hard. I see no way except to disassemble them and use llithium grease on the upright post. Thanks for any help, this our first MH.

Probably. Whether it helps of not depends on the mechanism to some extent. If it has bearings and they are clamped too tight, lube probably won't help. If just dirty or the old grease is dried out, a squirt of lube can make a big difference.

On my 03 sightseer I had that same issue. You have 4 bolts holding the seat to the base. Dead center of the base is a large nut so removed it cleaned the surfaces and greased the bearings and put it back together. Tighten the nut so you have a little drag on it and you are done. Like I said this was on mine so no one jump on me saying it's not a sightseer.
