I have an Oasis with the Vantage seats. The front seat always seems like the back rest is uneven. The right side leans farther back than the left side. Our dealer gave us a new seat under warranty. Now that one is cockeyed as well. Has anyone else had this issue. Got a fix?

Not a missing or loose pivot/hinge screw is it. These can back out and need a bit of lock tight so you dont loose them. If one pops out the seat will become lopsided.

lol....I had the SAME issue with mine and I feel stupid for having to admit it but the cable going from seat back to seat was on the WRONG side of the rubber flap sticking up. It shortened the cable like this and didn't allow the left side all the way back. Maybe check that first as its sometimes hard to tell if its hung up on wrong side or not

yes, I too have had the cable on the wrong side of the flap. I now take extra care to make sure it is correct. That is not the issue though.

Make sure you locktight them and check them occasionally, you dont want to loose them altogether, probably be a pain to replace. I've known more than one person who has had this issue
