Rotating captains chair

New owners of 2005 Dolphin 5335 on a W-22 workhorse chassis with 8.1 GM engine.
Does anyone know how to rotate the captains chair to face the rear of the coach when the slide is out?
I love this site!!

On our 6355 05 Dolphin there are 2 square "buttons" on the side of the seats. The rear one controls the seat back recline and the front one allows the seat to rotate. Just lift up on the bottom and spin the seat at the same time. The button is spring loaded and lifts kinda hard.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I cannot find any combination of seat and steering wheel that will allow for a 180* rotation.
I have a pdf of the original sales brochure that appears to show that seat will swivel that way.

I have a 2006 Seabreeze and it's interesting trying to turn the seat around. I have to raise the steering wheel all the way up, turn the seat about 45 degrees, then manipulate the front/back/tilt controls all the way back to clear the steering wheel, then move the seat forward to align it. It can be done, but it takes some experimentation.

X2. I have to do the seat slide, back tilt, swivel, with steering wheel all the way forward. Not hard at all. You will see what you have to do as you do it.

On my 2004 Dolphin 5342 I can't find a combination that gets me past the steering wheel.

I haven't either, so I just leave mine turned 90 degrees or left in the driving position.

Thanks

I have a 06 Seabreeze 1821 and gave up trying to rotate all the way. I'll try it again thanks to your suggestions. Thanks

I didn’t either. I didn’t make a big deal of it but I recall working at it a while and no joy.

Ditto here on the 2005 Seabreeze. Seat still slightly rubs against the steering wheel for about 1/8 of the turn, but it works. Always wondered why they couldn't have designed it with either 2 more inches of space, or a steering column that goes straight up.

Yep, I can not rotate it without there being a bit of rubbing. I agree, wouldn't take a lot to design it properly...
