Just a couple questions...

We bought our 2004 Safaria about 4 weeks ago. The previous owner had something replaced on the fridge about a year ago. The work was done a few states away. As I was cleaning it I noticed that the fridge is loose at the top. It leans out about an inch at the top. Is this something we need to worry about? Would there be an easy fix for it.

The previous owner took out the TV in the bedroom. I want to put one back in. Is there anything special I should do to secure it?

The previous owner also replaced the sofa with two really nice freestanding recliners. I love them, but they don't have any seatbelts. So we don't have a secure seat for any other passengers. I would like to put a sofa with seatbelts. The area is 72 inches. Is there a place that will trade the chairs for a sofa.
Thanks four your help.

Camping world, and Bradd and Hall are big suppliers of rv furniture, but that might not guarantee attachment points for seat belts.

However, I'd check to see if either dealer are near you.

As to the ftidge... is it loose? Can you move it by hand? Really it "should" be straight and level.

Why don't you just fasten the seatbelts to the floor? That's the way they are all done.

I don't own a MH--wondering, is/are the sofa(s) attached safely to the framework?
If seat-belt supplied, do they attach to the sofa or the framework?

In the OPs question about the sofa--if he just puts in a sofa with seatbelts, what will that accomplish--that occupants stay with the sofa when it flies around in a crash?

Really don't know about seatbelts in MHs, but stands to reason to me, the belts have to be secured to a solid point?

Yes, I can push it back in at the top. We don't know what it looks like behind the top or what braces it in.

Look at some RV blog sites that have adds for ?. There are people looking for chairs and have a sofa. The sofa is bolted to the MH and the seat belts are bolted to the MH also. You might look in the coach from the bays under the sofa area and find the attachment points.
As to the refer it should have four attachment points, sounds like back two are loose or missing. If you can see under the refer from inside or out side you might see what's needed.

I've got a Holiday Rambler. The J-lounge I removed was attached to the floor, the seatbelts were fastened to the floor. We removed the J-lounge kept the seatbelts for the recliners. I'm fairly certain there are seatbelt holes somewhere in that floor.
