Replacing factory parts!!! (stereo, seat lever)

Good evening everyone! Looking to replace my factory am/fm cd/cassette player (oh yes all 3) with a new touch screen with all of the new amenities. I have a 2005 National RV Dolphin with the workhorse chassis. My question is if that is a GM wiring harness to buy an adapter for, or is it something else? I also need recommendations for a new seat latch for the swivel front seat. I can't seem to find one where I am looking. I need some places to find that lever.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!!

Thank you, Jim.

Unless dash radio is a GM radio - most coach builders use aftermarket radios - so the plug for power and speaker connections won’t be GM.
If it is a GM radio, you’ll have to figure out what year it came from to find a “Plug’n’Play” interface harness.

As for the seats, they are also typically coach builder provided. Look for a name on the seat and search from there.

Crutchfield is probably one of the best places to start, they have really great resources online.

I replaced mine with a Sony unit from Best Buy. Didnít want cd nor tape. The Sony matched up to factory wiring. Mines an 05 Tropi-cal on freightliner chassis

Thank you, I tried flexsteel and they could not help. I tried a recommended person from flexsteel and she could not help with the same part. I am going to have to go with something different.

Radio replacement

When I replaced mine in our 2006 Dolphin I cut off the cable to the radio and spliced ne pigtail to it. Thus avoiding the problem of the plug.
