Yup, the lever on the left raises the seat back to the upright most position. Then you adjust the seat all the way forward. This is what you need to do to allow it to rotate past the steering wheel.
On my Outlaw there are two red switches in the stair well. One is for the storage lights and the other controls both the left and right outside lights.
There are a few really creative guys on this forum that have done some really neat additions to their rigs. i've done a few myself like adding cables to convert the ramp into a deck, adding a roll down screen, and swapping the 27" LCD for a 42"
So ask away and you'll get some great advise as this is a great place for Outlaw specific information. I've searched the internet and this was the best site I found.
Good luck with your Outlaw, and good to meet you!
