Has any one figured out a way to keep the clothes hangars on the clothes pole in the closet? Every time we hit a big bump or dip they go a flyin!

Wondered if we were the only people with flying clothes, would like to know a solution to this also.

Your hangers aren't staying on the pole?

Hmmm. Our closet is in our bedroom slide on the driver's side so the clothes pole is parallel with the vehicle motion. We don't have any problem with clothes/hangers falling off.

Sully, drill a hole through the rod and the bracket(about 3/16" Dia.). Drop a 10-24 or 10-32 machine screw through rod and the bracket and put a nut on the other side. Should solve the problem very quickly.

My only problem is that WRV didn't add enough length for putting men's clothes in the closet. Only enough room for women's clothes. Or maybe that's just this man's problem. Hmmm...

I seem to have the same issue/problem that EngineerMike does. The pole does not seem to leave its intended retainer, but the area allocated for my (mens) clothes is proportionately small compared to the area allocated for my wifes (womens) clothing.

Just how much room do your jeans and beer T-shirts require?

Sully, I apologize, I misread your question and thought you meant your clothes pole was jumping out of the end sockets.
Possibly could you put hooks on each end and stretch a bungee cord across the top and on the backside of the hangers?

Sully ~ Tris solved that problem for me last year by putting a 1x4 brace from the rear floor in the middle to the pole and screwed it in - hasn't happened since! WRV is now putting a central load bearing vertical support in the rear closet of the Apex (maybe the others too - I didn't look). I was freaking out finding all the clothes on the floor!
