New Rockwood 8289ws 5th wheel home, now some questions

Got our new fifth wheel home and all is going pretty well. Couple minor issues, but nothing that can't be easily fixed.
We have the sofa that slides out to make the bed ( not a jack knife). I know I read somewhere recently on here about there should be straps somewhere on it to keep it from sliding out when you don't want it too, but I can't find that post.
Can someone direct me as to where to look for these straps? I tried to find them last night, but obviously I am not looking in the right place.

Hello. Our 8289 had straps screwed to the flor. They are disconnected now, our couch doesn't move. We do set the stools on the lazy boy chairs use straps to hold against the back wall.

The hide-a-bed sofa on our 8289 never moved in 2 years and 25,000 miles. I don't think straps are necessary.
