Have purchased a couple salvaged seats, driver and passenger to replace my worn out seats that are NOT powered. Anyone done simalar? Am asking for suggestions and info to wire them up. 1999 Winnebago 34v, it's a pusher. Also am thinking a dashboard switch would be a good idea.

If the seats came with the power controls, like most do, than all you need to do is to get fused 12 volts to them.

Take a look under the seat, it may be prewired for a seat.

1. If not OEM for powered seats, there will be no prewire especially a 1999
2. Do the powered seats have the toggle switches for moving the mechanism?
3. When you state Dash Switch, you mean just a Toggle for 12 volt power on and off?
4. Dash Switch---- you mean the activation switch to move the seat?
5. If you have the complete Seat package including the activation switches mounted on the side of the seat, then the ONLY thing you have to run is a 12 volt Positive to the 2 wire pigtail for each seat and a Negative. Ground can be to the seat mount pedestal IF the pedestal mount bolts thru the floor are anchored to a steel support.
6. 12 volts can be either Ignition ON activated or continous 12 volts. Most OEM's are wires Positive HOT all the time. Most seats are on either a 15 or 20 amp fuse for each seat
7. IF your seat pedestal is a swivel, you will have to allow extra Positive and Negative slack wiring to allow the seat to swivel without pulling the wires loose.
8. Most seat mounts have a 3/8 thick washer(4 bolts and washers) between the pedestal and the bottom mount of the seat. Doug

Thanks Doug. Seats are complete with controls. Toggle dash switch to save battery drain when parked. Will get them wired and post results.

There is no way to drain battery. They only use power when you activate the mechanism. You do not need the dash switch. Doug

PS, NO OEM installs a Dash switch
