Jayco Seneca Freightliner Steering Wheel

Has anyone had success upgrading the freightliner steering wheel with a smart wheel that you can control your lights, cruise control, whippers....ect.? Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions.

Some of the Freightliner Cascadia semi-tractors have steering wheel controls, not sure if their steering column and wheel would swap into a M2 chassis. Plus then one would need to somehow integrate those switches into the system to actually control the functions. I haven't seen it on an M2, but an interesting prospect!

The m2 platform does not support steering wheel controls outside of the horn unfortunately. It is designed as a heavy duty work platform and the creature comforts from their otr trucks for the most part have not trickled down to them yet
