Fix for drivers seat that will not go back far enough

Passing on a fix for people that have a drivers seat that will not go back far enough for long legs and is causing leg cramp. My old motorhome is a 1994 Tioga Montara that I purchase last month and have been working on making improvements almost every day.

With the seat all the way back my legs were cramped so I found a simple cheep fix to add about 6" of leg room.

Four acorn nuts hold the seat to the swivel and slide pedestal so I removed them. The bolts stay fixed to the seat. This made it possible to lift and remove the seat and put it on the ground next the motorhome.
Next what remained was a mounting plate on the pedestal that has two nuts holding it. I removed the two nuts to free the mounting plate and reversed the plate 180 degrees. This gives about 6" more leg room when the seat is back all the way. You can lock the seat by tightening the two nuts so it no longer swivels but will still slide free forward and back, or you can use a grinder to make a notch in the steel plate 180 degrees to match the one I was using. The whole job is for a beginner and is less than an hour. If you make a notch in the steel plate with an electric side grinder put something down on the carpet. I made a burn mark in the carpet behind the seat.

I have not had my 5'4" wife try the seat all the way forward. Hope it is good for her because I know it saved me from selling the motorhome because on leg cramp. Now I can slide the seat so far back someone 6'7" would have leg room.

If anyone has a simple fix for an old rubber roof without changing the whole roof email me. I used a little Rustoleum clear eave strof spray on a few spots and hope for the best. ----Fuseboxer---

I have that problem with my 2011 Aspect 30c. I will take a look at my mounting system and see if I can do the same. Any pictures?
