Drivers seat that leans to right

2016 Axis 25-2. took seat in to upholstery shop to have a new bun made so i don't feel like i am leaning to the right. thought it was the stand coming out of floor so i shimed it with no luck. then shimed under seat and it didn't change anything so new handmade bun is going in.

We bought our Hurricane 35C with 3000 miles on it. I noticed the drivers seat felt like it tilted to the right slightly. Thought that was strange.

After our first camping trip I went to bring the dinning/living room slide in. Fortunately it was the first time and I was watching everything very closely, I thought. If the drivers seat is not fully upright the slide will hit it and tilt it to the right. When I got home I had my neighbor, a strong brute, help me push it back to the straight position. Amazing how strong the slide is to bend the chair frame.

I now have a label next to the slide switch. " Chair Upright?"

That one is common, but easy to fix. Just loosen the rear bolts holding the seat to the stem, and take the front nuts off. Lift the front of the seat, then either stack some washers or do what I did and get a nut that fits over the seat stud as a spacer, I think it was 3/8. Just make sure you can get the seat nut back on fully. Then tighten the rear nuts. It will tilt the seat back just enough to make it comfortable.
I was seriously considering getting new seats before discovering this fix, now it is perfectly comfortable.

Yeah, Whirnot, that's what I planned, so thanks for the details. I want to have a cloth insert in the seat to stop the slip-n-slide and to fight off diaper dash (monkey butt or whatever name is used colloquially, lol) I hate all vinyl seats and I struggled this summer with a oddball seat cover this summer.

Thank you all, I was thinking it was just me. Need right arm rest just to stay in the seat. Mine isn't even centered with the steering wheel. Good old Thor quality.
