Default Roadtrek Zion Fron seats

I am in the process of down sizing to a class B motorhome. We have come to the conclusion that the class B is really a better fit for our lifestyle. We test drove a 2016 Zion today and really like the design. My wife was not to keen on the cloth use on the power sofa. She would like to see what the leather sofa looks like. I have a couple of questions that neither I nor the salesman could figure out. This may sound stupid but we could not figure out how to recline or rotate the front seats. We drove with the seats in the straight up position and it was a very uncomfortable ride for both of us. The service guy was busy doing a walk though with some else and know sale person could figure this out. I know the seats will rotate but I am unsure if they will recline. I downloaded the Roadtrek manual but could not find the procedure there either. I would appreciate if some could help me out.

I suggest you download a Ram Promaster owner's manual and see if it is covered there.

I ran into the same problem - I could not figure out how to rotate / swivel the front seats when I looked at a Zion some time back and the sales guy said they tried & couldn't figure it out!

Since then Gerry (Zion owner) has explained it:

there is no cable tv outside outlet-i had one installed free of charge because i complained before taking delivery.

Thank you very much. The sales lady called this morning after the service guy explained the operation of the seats. I read your original post and we both had pretty much the same issues concerning the steering wheel. I need to be able to tilt the steering wheel. I am heading back to the dealer today to test out the seating position again.

no tilt on the Promaster-at least not on mine

if you google it the promaster 'city' has it but i believe the promaster cargo van still does not have it

Thanks again Gerry, I was afraid of that.
