Pilot/Co-Pilot to swivel?

Does anyone know if the pilot/co-pilot chairs swivel on a Safari Zanzibar 2000?
If so, how do we engage them to swivel?

I would think looking under the seat for a control wire going to a swivel plate would be a good place to start.

Both of my class A s have had levers on the sides of the chairs which pull a cable. The cable pulls a catch that releases and allows the chairs to swivel. If you see a cable under the chairs, follow it up to find the lever.

Without knowing details about your coach...

(hint: update your profile to include the coach's specifics and add same to your signature!)

My Ambassador has small, hard to find levers on the seat near the floor. Driver's seat on the left side, co-pilot's on the right side. You can lift the seat skirts and simply look and they should be there. (Our Winnebago has the same kind of setup too, just a lever under the seat.)

and when you find it, always rotate the seat front toward the middle

my 1998 Beaver, then owned by Safari, has a lever on the side attached to a spring that pivots to allow the base to turn. Purely mechanical and no cables. Yours may be the same but you will have to raise the skirt and look under to see it.
