Thanks for the info. Got one from Amazon installed today and love it.

We've always liked the "Who Cares" clocks:


Haven't put one in the RV (yet).

I have a clock similiar to that in my office, it says "Whatever". When I retire, it goes with me and into the RV.

Turning the Driver’s seat completely around Axis 25.2.

This is really not a modification, however, I have been considering one to solve what I thought was a problem due to the interference of the left arm rest against the steering wheel. Since picking up our 2017 Axis 25.2 a few weeks ago, I never could figure out how to turn the driver’s seat all the way around like the passenger’s seat.
I thought about reworking the left arm rest and even thought about replacing the steering wheel to one with a “flat” section. However, finally found that working with a combination of the adjusting the horizontal and back rest alignment it’s really quite easy.

I guess I’m just sharing how dumb I was. Even the dealer announced at the PDI “the driver’s seat does not turn all the way around.”
Best Regards to all, James

Great info thanks. Looks like you leave the armrest down and fold the seat forward. Where did you get the seat covers?

Hi Kev,
Seat covers are from Camping World. Not very great quality … but serviceable. They look it, however they are not fully waterproof. Around $70.00 for set of 2. Catalog Item # 87844

What part of the RV is the laziest?

The wheels because they are always tired!

Here is my latest mod with the infamous shower curtain rod...

Kev .. we , also, got the seat covers from CW ... as he said..they are not very cosmetic..but they do prevent claw damage...
in addition...we bought an inexpensive comforter and keep the couch covered...you ask how well has that served us? Well...we have no claw damage...but our 'little man' likes to burrow under a blanket, etc. when he is feeling insecure. So, there ya go !

We do ! Not all the time .. Ron has a 6x10 Stealth enclosed trailer for the trips when we take the 'dresser' ... if we are taking the dual sport we use the
hitch mount carrier.
In addition...once in a while, we take both..he has the necessary wheel chocks mounted to haul them safely.

Both serve us well....regarding the trailer...we don't even know it is back there.

Axis 25.2 Turning Driver's Seat

Axis 25.2 Turning Driver's Seat
Hi Penguin,
Attached instruction you requested on turning the seat in the Axis 25.2
Hope you can see and hear the attached video through a public link to my OneDrive.
https://1drv.ms/f/s!AmmCA9ceR2_4hMVHKuFo176w2IQStQ
Please let me know if this works for you. I was unable to load up a video directly to the Thor Forum Site.
Best Regards,
James

Larry ... thanks for the heads up on this door handle. Ours arrived today, Ron had it on immediately.

Now to use Doc's suggestion of putting colorful tape on the door/latch handles for easy identification.

That is a great idea simply to keep the unit from shaking when people are walking around. Especially on the 25.2 with the bed hanging out the back (probably why you put them on).

Did you also put some towards the front?
