Does anyone have a suggestion on how to secure the dinette chairs while in the coach is in motion. I have tried to bungee them in place, lay them down and cover the legs to protect items they come in contact with items when turning or breaking. However, it seems like there has to be a better approach other then have the chairs on the side as we go down the highways. Any ideas...

Our motorhome came with a wide strap that gets wrapped around one let of each chair and one leg of the table, we've never had a problem with it while traveling.

Mud Flap what roads are you driving on? Our
two chairs have never moved. They sit on carpeting under the table. What flooring do
you have under the chairs?

My fiver had a free standing table and chairs. I used a section of foam insulation that you would put over copper pipes. I slipped a short section over the edge of each chair back to cushion them, they used a short velcro strap to cinch them together. Being tied together created a larger base and they were less likely to rock around and fall over. The insulation was cheap at Home Depot.

My chairs never move. We never have to do anything with them. Maybe it is because I am such a good driver. I wish I could say the same thing about all the junk in my wife's cupboards.

Don, I've had the pleasure of eating some of your wife's excellant cooking! You better be careful what you say about what she has in the cupboards! Just to be safe myself, I say that what ever your wife wants in the cupboards she can have in the cupboards! Now - please pass the potatoes!
