How to Swivel Driver and Psgr Seats?

I feel like such a dunce but I cannot figure it out. I cannot seem to find the lever or mechanism to swivle the driver and passenger seats around to face the salon area in our 2005 Fleetwood Revolution.

Any knowledgable people out there that can help me remove this dunce cap from my head?

Thanks in advance.

You should have a lever in the center of the front seat cushion. Just pull it out and rotate the seats.

We have the FlexSteel seats in our 2007 Bounder - on the right-hand side of each seat there are two levers. The front lever adjusts the angle of the seat back and the rear lever actuates the swivel mechanism.

In our 2002 Bounder with the FlexSteel seats we have two levers on the left side for swivel and front/back slide and one on the right for tilt.

As stated above, mine is also on the side and it is another brand of seat. It may help if you look below the upholstery to find the latch and see where it is located on the base. You can then trace the cable to the latch.

I believe the answer for your chair has been posted. Did you figure out your slide problem, if so post it.

A lot depends on who made the seat, ON my flex steels under the seat (not on the side but down under) on one side, it's the right side for the driver's seat, is a metal rod. No marking of any kind, no plastic or rubber grip, just a rod.. You push back on the rod (toward the rear of the coach) and you may have to wiggle the seat a bit to release the pawl. May be very hard to move.. but it's the only thing down there that looks like a rod which just flat sticks out several inches.

If you look at the "Seat" end of the rod, you will see the latch.
Home is where I park it!

On mine with Flexsteel seats it has a recessed handle that needs to be pulled then the seat will swivel.

on our drivers seat the swivel lever is in the right arm rest, on the from of the arm rest, i thought it was to adjust the arm rest up and down but it's to swivel the seat.

Here's where we are
