rocking chair stop?

We just got back from a great getaway trip with our coach and my wife reminded me again of the ONE thing that she'd like to improve inside.

How do you get the swiveling rocking chair to stay in one position? There doesn't appear to be any lock handle on the pedestal. The only thing that I've found so far is to raise the footrest and stretch it out, but that compromises access to our side door. Any ideas?

I remember that problem. We "fixed" it by replacing that huge heavy chair with a Ekornes Stressless which is lighter, smaller, and doesn't swivel like that. Size is important in our 34'.

Bunge cord tied to the round metal base . I put two, one across from left to right and the other connected from the center of that one down the front to the base..

I use a piece of pipe insulation underneath wedged upright on the hoop to the chair back. It needs to be a large diameter heavy duty. Has lasted all season. I also tied down the chair through the floor with stainless cable. Figured it could take out the co-pilot in a crash.

Buy a piece of foam rubber 4' x4' x 1-1/2(Walmart) & roll it up and stuff it under the chair when you are traveling. Quite frankly we never worry about ours. On main roads it never moves. Anyway if you go with the foam rubber when you are camped drop it down behind the sofa.
