But, out on the open highway, going straight as an arrow, no one's around you-coming or going. As has been stated, cruise set, seat back, both are ready, change! Done!

We've done it a zillion times. We've been traveling with many motor homes at a time, of which, every couple did the same thing. When out on the open road, in many cases, there's no pullouts, you're on a freeway and not allowed to pull over, the rest stops are a zillion miles ahead and all that. Obviously if anyone feels it's unsafe, it's not rocket science, SIMPLY DON'T DO IT! You can flame me 'till he... freezes over. Flame suit's been on for decades. I have no doubt in my mind that of all the members here reading these forums, many have done "in-flight" driver changes many, many times, but, will not admit it due to the ridicule they will receive.

It's done, every day, day in and day out. So far, no one's died. The moon and the sun still rise and fall.

At that time while I was standing, someone could slip into the seat, slide it forward and take over the wheel without a problem. If I was going to switch with that method, I would release the CC, to be slowing during he switch. My wife will not drive a DP, so it's a moot point. I have to wonder who presents the greatest risk to others, the experienced couple doing the switch at 60 mph or less on a deserted highway or the guy driving 70-75 because he can and thinks he's in complete control even though he is pushing his tires to their limit?
Why do people try to compare the lesser of two evils and say one is better then the other......both are wrong as is texting and all the other un safe habits......as I said before.....when it goes wrong, I hope it only ruins your day.

I was traveling by myself one time and needed to grab something off the passenger seat. To do that, I had to just move slightly off my seat and steer with my left hand.

Scared the "Bejeebers" outta me!

Needless to say I never tried that again. Felt stupid for thinking it was okay in the first place.

Well, since the only warm body in the shotgun seat is Charlie the Beagle, I guess I'm stuck driving myself. He has very slow reflexes and is easily distracted by some scents.

Found when looking at the "how to steer" thread.

There is another thread about moving the steering wheel and seat and pedals around to be able to read instruments and get comfortable. One of the links in that thread mentioned going to Jeff Danial's YouTube video on 4 point driving. It was pretty funny.

But, on another video, he mentions using the facilities in a motorhome and demonstrates.

Actually, 20-somethings are invincible because they can always hit the "Reset" button if anything goes sideways!
