Default Adjustable Pedals/Seat Adjustment

I just found out all of our puck lights dim by holding the on-off switches down.


Now I have read in a somewhere that the brake and throttle pedals are adjustable but cannot find a switch. They don't really look like they adjust.
Man that would be really nice for my short legs to get me some more space between the seat and steering column.


Second, has anyone moved the co-pilots seat forward to allow more room to recline the seat back? How about lowering the height? I'm thinking about having an inch or so removed from the pedestal to let Patty's feet touch the floor....at least her toes


Thanks all. Travel Safe!

I have taken the seat pedestals out and cut a section out of them and rewelded them back together.
My Carol has short legs too.
I have never heard of adjustable pedals in a bus,but i have added wood blocks to them,for short legs.
I would like to add a ledge to my pedals,i feel like my foot needs to be higher up the pedal,if i had a ledge for my heel to rest on it would be great.

Thanks Randy.



I like the pedal ledge...especially on the brake. Much less pressure needed higher up on the pedal since the pivot is on the floor.


For the seat height, that was my thought, cutting the pedestal down...then figure how to move it forward. Shouldn't be too hard as it seems to sit on a very robust metal plate. Go figure, what else would BB use. A least I know Patty is staying put

When you cut the pedistal down,offset it a little before welding it back up.
I added some lean back in one that i shortened,worked great until you rotate the chair,then it was leaning to one side.
dumb me!

wouldn't it be easier to build a wooden platform to have her put her fee on? Lord she must be short because Michele is only 5'2" and her feet touch

An "adjustable pedal dash switch" and an "adjustable pedal motor" are mentioned in the 2005 and 2008 owners manual prints but there's a note that says "Not used at this time".

That would be easy,but then you have to move the platform everytime you open the door,and hen find a place to store the platform when the step slide is open.

So nobody had figured out how to do it yet?
I think moving the steering column forward is easier that moving the pedals.
My LXI has the column moved back,more that a WB,i looked into moving it back forward and its a simple bracket mod.
I think they moved it back so the wheel would lay flat for those tables ans lamps people like to put on the wheel.
Carol would like for it to be moved forward so she can reach the pedals better.

I have not seen any adjustable pedals but there was a plastic piece floating around for the brake pedal that would change the angle. Raising the toe end of the pedal making it easier to push. I have one somewhere but never installed.
