I have never strapped down the Lazy Boy recliners or table and chairs in my 2012 Sabre 31 RETS-6. I position the recliners back to back in the slide with a blanket between the two backs, keep them about 4" from the atrium windows so they won't rub the big shade, also open the two end shades up past the top of the ends of the recliner so the end of the recliner won't rub the shade. Never had them move from that position. The table came screwed down through the carpet so it hasn't moved. I position the chairs so they won't rub together and they haven't moved. I just completed a 1,000 mile round trip in May that was mostly interstate I-65 South out of Nashville through Birmingham to Fl. There is about 15 miles of interstate through Birmingham that is like a wash board, a LOT of bounce. Never had a problem with anything inside the 5er, move. The bikes on the rack in back had to be re-strapped.

Thanks for the help. I've been did the same with the recliners. If I am reading right, you don't strap the dining chairs at all?

I actually have the same question regarding a 36QBOK. Is this the same part number and location?

Same question about a TV mount in the bunkhouse? Shame on me... I opted against the option of the TV back there thinking I could get a Walmart TV cheaper.. turns out that after getting the TV, the mount and installing it - it's not a whole lot cheaper.

Hi Sam, I have a 2012 320 FQDS and need to get a little more height out of the trailer. I have another hole on the shackles that is lower than where the springs are mounted now. Can I move the springs to the lower hole to gain a little height, and if I can will I need to replace the existing hardware that attaches the front and rear springs together( T shaped bracket). Thanks Steve

Dear Customer,
your 36QBOK is different in the bedroom, due to the washer dryer cabinet. Front bedroom: You have a "in-wall" backer that extends vertically from the dresser to the ceiling. It is approx. 6" wide and is centered on the dresser. Bunkroom: There is a wood backer in the rear wall where the TV would go for a TV bracket. You should be able to press on the wall to feel the addtional backer in the wall.

I hope this helps.

Dear Customer,
yes those shackle adjustments are used to raise the fifth wheel. You shouldn't need to replace the center hardware.

Please be very careful raising your fifth wheel. I've heard stories of customers flipping over their unit by only raising one side of the trailer too much. Good luck!

It helps greatly. THANK YOU! The bunkroom wood backer ended up being pretty obvious with just pushing on the wall. Do you all have a TV mount that can be purchased (through the dealer, of course) for either/both of those places?

If you do, is there a limit to the size of TV that the mount supports? We bought a 26" TV for the bunkhouse and will probably get a 19" TV for the front bedroom.

I beleive the following TV bracket part number will work: 30I26514A. You will need to contact a Sabre dealer for a price. The bracket is a flat mount bracket that does not swivel. If you want something that swivels I will need to get you another part number. With the viewable angle of the new TVs, a lot of customers don't want the swing arm brackets because they can sag after time. I hope this helps.
