Drivers seat not moving forward

I have a 1989 Winnebago Elandan. The drivers seat is electric but it won't adjust forward. Is there a fuse for it? Or could the motor have possibly burned out? It makes it hard to drive when I am so far from the steering wheel. Please help me out.

If your seat is like most of the electric seats, it has switches on the side of the seat. If it is like mine, the electrical connector plugs into the back of the switch. The connector becomes loose, corroded, or broke. Occasionally I have to reach under the switch and push the connector or wiggle it. It isn't hard to unscrew the whole switch and check it out, but I think that is your problem.

Both our front seats are electrically operated and they is an inline fuse in the wiring under the seat. However, if it blows nothing on the seat will work, like the lumbar support pump or footrest (on the passenger seat).
