Has anybody converted their pull out back seat with power to make it easier to pull out and push back? We are pretty active people in our late 60's but this part is getting harder and harder every year. Any feedback is appreciated!

This is a camper version I take it. When new I recall that the seat was very easy to pull out. Now ours is a bit stiff. I would pull the seat all the way out of the track, and clean and lube it up.

THe pop top takes considerable more effort to lift than the seat to pull forward. Would think that the pop top would be an issue long before the seat would be.

Similar to the power poptops, I'll bet a linear actuator could be used to extend or retract the rear seat. It would be maddeningly slow, but could be a viable option.

Time to get under and get some silicone grease on the runners to fix that
