Straps

Our 2604 came with 2 factory straps that are just inside the door (left side as you walk in) that attach to two shorter straps that hook into a small D ring screwed into the floor about the middle of the window. You are supposed to do as previously stated flip one chair into the other and put the straps over them and snug them down to keep them from moving.

Now with all that said if you don't have the straps you are not missing much. the straps are good for holding one chair but I doubt they would hold the second chair upside down very well. Like I stated before we took one chair out since my wife likes the couch much better and it gives us a lot of room when we walk into the trailer and the light straps work well for one chair.

If I were going to keep both chairs in it I would replace the D rings with much bigger ones and use a nice little ratcheting strap to snug them down.

One other thing to keep in mind that when you snug them down make sure you have some protective padding between the chair back and the little corner table. It it rubs it will cut through the fabric very quickly. I installed a couple of pieces of white plastic cutting board i cut up with the table saw and screwed them to the back of the chair to make sure it didn't rub anymore.

Ours came directly from the factory. I have done plenty of PDI's during my time in the RV business, so didn't feel the need of a dealer here in California. Not sure what the dealer in Ohio does for a PDI ?? Not much. All of the tanks (including propane), were empty. Except for a little anti-freeze.

The chairs were wrapped in plastic and stacked on top of one another, so I think the dealer didn't touch them. The transport driver said that the unit was locked at the dealer and unopened during the trip out to California and I believe him from the looks of the couch thrown out into the isle and the damage to the chairs by the small counters in the corner.

What's in those little counters ?? Thinking about removing them.

We have the same trailer but 2015 and we also have the fixed dinette.
When we picked up our trailer the chairs were just as you described, on top of each other. This put a dent in the seat of the bottom chair which never full came out.
Do you really need the second recliner? It isn't very practical because it sits behind the counter. We took ours out of the camper and only use the one recliner. There is plenty of seating without.

Little tables

The little table on the street side near the couch is what covers the electrical connection device for your shore power cable. Not sure what the one by the door covers up but I bet there is something under there.

If there is aluminum frame in those little tables, I am wondering if it is structural ?? Like a bracket to support wall movement. ??

I would like to modify them to make them smaller, but the little guy inside my head says "NO !"

We were at the trailer today installing the new digital thermostat. While we were at it, we wrestled the chairs and tried to fit them every which-a-way.

We found only one way they would fit. The chairs are tapered with the larger width at the front and the narrow width at the rear. So, we alternated them to fit. The privacy screen must be up.....

.tight fit !!

Do they set side by side? In my jammer they do and we have a tie down strap that is anchored to the wall. Slide them in, hook straps together and pull tight. Secured. Not sure why yours didn't come with that. Unless it was finished on Friday or something.

On my 3001W the recliners go back to back and then I have to put a strap around them, this way they can't keep rocking into the side of the trailer and there's room for the slide to go in.
