I removed all the metal strapping and replaced with 1'nylon straps . Works great, many of the new motorhomes are using this method.

Why could we not use the large plastic ties that the police use for handcuffs. They are extremely strong and I am certain they make larger ones. If not why not use velcro straps.

Ted- stroke of genius! Cable ties come up to 60" or so and 175# strength. Clean, lightweight, fast to install. And zero calories!! WRV might even switch.

Engineer Mike, it was great to hear from you. We have all been a bit concerned with your where abouts. Your usual informative info has been greatly missed.
Glad you are back.
