In reply to the trim wheel direction, yes, it runs backwards. I've flown aircraft with trim switches that run in reverse (push down for nose up, etc) and never found it a problem, so hopefully the same will apply here. The slow, fairly labour-intensive adjustment of the control, along with the light stick forces of the RV elevator, leads me to feel it will be safe to try it out this way. If it doesn't work, or is just irritating, I can change it.

With regards to the bracket interfering with the passenger's leg, it sits way below the front of the seat cushion and it not an issue. I also don't have any friends.
