I have the solution, but it is hard to explain. Cut a piece of wooden rod or broomstick the length of your closet rod. Attach loosely to the rod with zip ties. When you are traveling flip it to the front, when camped flip over to the rear. Think of it like this. You are not trying to keep the hangers from bouncing up, but the rod in the forward position won't let the hangers come off the rod. Hope this helps

Measure from the rod to the top of the cabinet. It will usually be about two inches. Cut a piece of 1X3 the thickness of the opening. Install three or four hinges to hold it in place. while traveling leave it down. when you reach your destination, flip it up and hold it up with velcro.

This works! Prior to having the MH, we had a smaller TT, and quite often when arriving at destination, all or most of the hangers were off the rod.
Made a device with pvc pipe and just attached it at each end with a bungee cord while traveling, and not more problems. While at campground, just store the pvc in floor of closet, and reinstall it when moving. Costs almost nothing, and problem solved!

That seems like a great idea. And.........you explained it quite well too.
