Anyone ever try to adjust these armrests?

One of the things we discovered in sitting in tons of Class A's during our search was the upper-level coaches seemed to all have driver-adjustable armrests, while the medium- to entry-level coaches did not. It wasn't even listed as an option on our build sheet when we spec-ed ours out.

This is what our seats look like in our Bounder:



Has anyone ever tried to get inside one of these and make the adjustment? The leather (faux or otherwise) is wrapped on the rest quite tightly and I don't want to screw it up by experimenting. I know it won't be something we will do very often (i.e., once!) but the position they are set at now is far too high for both of us and we end up with sore shoulders if we use them for any extended period.

Look underneath the armrests for a small slit that you can get your finger through, if there is one you will probably find an adjustment nut you can turn with your finger.

Yeah, we've looked (and looked!) and can't find anything. You can barely squeeze your fingers in and touch the metal post that extends out from the seat back, but there is no hole or adjustment that either of us can seem to find. It's almost like they mounted these and THEN put the leather over the seat back. If that's the case, I'm REALLY scared to mess with them.

Thanks for the suggestion! I appreciate your time.

i followed this video on my previous RV, once they are off, you may be able to adjust the seat back bar.

Dang, I got all excited thinking it was going to be that easy but mine don't budge at all when doing what he showed!

Thanks, anyway. It was worth a try!!!
