Raise the seat! I’m 6’4” and these seats are too low. They make your knees face out and your foot isn’t square to the accelerator.

I always add spacers to raise my seat two inches or more.


My Kharma ran over my Dogma.

That is exactly what my husband is experiencing. May be that his legs are being pushed out like you said so his foot is not straight on the pedal.
He is also 6'4 and his foot just does not line up with the accelerator pedal so he feels like only his little toe is on it. The new seats and a wider pedal (The RV place we took it do will be doing both) should solve the problem. If it still doesn't work, will look into raising the seat or using a cushion to get him a little higher. He now feels like he is sitting in a hole
