I don't. It's heavy enough to just sit there.

He has been wrote up on some of these forms, so you can look him up, He's a Mennonite and does good work
Used them once and was disappointed. The picture of the product ordered was not what they sent. It was a magazine rack that was twisted out of shape. Still sitting in the garage. Maybe they had a bad day?

You comment jumped out at me. We've had our 2012 Holiday Rambler Endeavor (sister ship to the Monaco Diplomat) for roughly a year. I've yet to figure out how to get the steering wheel into a horizontal position. It gets close - but nowhere near horizontal/flat enough to put anything on top of it. Is there a trick I'm missing?

Robot Check

One word of caution. Watch how much weight goes onto the center horn pad. When the coach is aired down, the air horns will not honk, but pressure on the center pad will cause the relay to power up and blow the horn fuse......don't ask me how I know!
Thanks for the warning Don! I think I'm gonna go with the round wood top from Lowes or HD. Putting a straight edge across the wheel, there's about 1/2" clearance to the buttons, including the horn, so with the wood it would not be a problem!

This looks like exactly what I need! My steering wheel is 18 1/8" diameter! Now if I can find an easy way to attach it.........

Maybe I can just insert a circle of wood dowels, protruding down maybe 1", that will just fit around the inside of the wheel, keeping it securely in place.....

Check out the Wheel Topper. Works like a charm.

If you try it without dowels you may be surprised how well it sits still.

This worked very well for us. You can make slight adjustments since the steering wheel is never in the exact place every time we park. Our wheel doesn't tilt to flat. Sorry, no picture.

Steering wheel table?

There is a pic of one tabletop made by an RV owner in the mag I get from FMCA. Last months issue I believe.

OH, and the author cautioned all readers to be sure and remove the tabletop from the steering wheel prior to driving away............😮😮
