Same here. Works like a champ from day one (for us). I am the one that played with the switch and got slammed. Then I did it again recently lol.

Thanks Randy, didn't pick up on that at first. I'll see if I can get that box removed.

That box is about 3x3'' and 16'' long,covered in carpet.
the screws go down through the top of the box and into the floor,they will be 4'' long or so.
2 screws.
Once you get that box up you can see under the seat platform and maybe the tail end of the air cylinder.

Double thanks Randy! I'll be able to get back to the coach in a day or two and look for those screws.

In Eric's 3rd picture in post #16, looks like he removed the seat and the metal platform, but the box at the back of the platform is still in place. Thanks again!

Haven't found the screws yet, carpet is pretty thick. Was the box screwed down and then carpeted? Or was the box screwed down through the carpet? Will the carpet need to be cut and peeled off the box area?

They drilled the screws through the carpet in about every application on these buses. Should be no need to cut the carpet. Buy yourself a strong rare earth magnet, that will help you locate the screws. They are extremely well hidden. They screw them in and then brush the nap of the carpet making them totally invisible.
