A $2 Fix for Tumbling Dinette Chairs
The first week we had our Rockwood 8280SS 5th wheel, we had the hardest time preventing the dinette chairs from falling over and traveling about the inside of the trailer. We have a ding in the front of our oven to prove it.
The trailer came with a strap to buckle the chairs snug up against the table leg. (it has a center post, only) But since the chair legs have no rungs, if the strap loosens the slightest bit, the chair can wiggle free and fall over.
My $2 solution was 4 large cup hooks from the hardware store. Attach them to the chair legs closest to the table pedestal, about 2" down from the top of the leg and under the chair seat. They keep the strap from sliding down the legs and working loose.
You will need to drill pilot holes, the wood is quite hard!
