Steering column cover removal ??

Hi all, I've been looking for a new to me coach for a while now and the Monacos are VERY impressive. The whole DEF problem has me nervous about all of the newer model coaches so I'm concentrating on pre DEF models. I have a disability that requires me to brake with my left foot and have done so without issues for almost 20 years in many different vehicles. My problem is that so far all of the Monaco coaches I have looked at have a large cover over the steering column and a smaller brake pedal which would make it difficult for me to keep my left foot close to the brake pedal. Have any of you ever looked at removing this cover ? If so do you have any pictures of the steering column without the cover ? My DW wants me to settle for one of the Winnebago Journeys that have an automotive style steering column that does not have a cover and a large brake pedal similar to the throttle pedal. HELP !!!! Ken

Cover Removal

Just a couple of screws and it is off. Still has the steering shaft of course, but would give you a lot more room. After removal any ADA adapter company could provide an extender to move the pedal further left if necessary.

Not sure what brand coach. Owner recently posted having 2nd brake pedal bolted to brake arm so its on the left. My old 95 Monaco has very little under the cover near floor level. You may find some pics in reflooring threads where owners may have removed the cover.

Thanks. I was hoping all brands that had a steering column cover would be easily removed. Didn't want to wastes any seller's time looking if not. Ken

Here is a thread looking for suggestions on making pedals easier to reach but morphed into modifying the pedal. Look at post #14, it has a good picture of the steering column, you can see the plastic shroud.

On mine there are only 3 or 4 screws that hold the cover on. It has to be removed in order to grease the small universal joint on the steering column.



They also make extenders for pedals, that or you might be able to get a shop to modify.
