  • What are these straps for?

    Attached to our dining table are 2 straps. What is their purpose, stabilize the table?

    We didn't ask the dealer when we picked her up (didn't notice it during the PDI). I'm seriously thinking about rotating the table 90 degrees and putting it under the window in the slide.

    Thanks

    Yes, to stabilize the table... and get in the way of your chair legs! On a side note look up MorRyde "chair buddy" they work great to keep the chairs from moving about.

      We also use Velcro straps to tie the dining room chairs legs together while traveling.

      Prevents the chairs from tipping over on rough roads - also prevents a chair hitting the oven door & glass breakage.

        Turning the table 90 degrees works out great. I keep mine that way even during transit. When parked I usually have a computer monitor on the table. I didn't want that table base taking up so much floor space. So, when I ordered mine a year ago, I asked about having the dinette from the 35-5Z swapped for the regular table and chairs. My dealer called NW and the engineers said that there wouldn't be a problem installing that table on the slide wall of the 32-5M. No change in price. The folding chairs stay in the basement. Don't have a picture of it turned 90, but here's what that table looked like the first time I stepped foot into the trailer. It came with those straps too.

          If you have a moment, could you take a pic of your velcro set up?

            Also visible are the removable wood hobby-board squares under the legs to protect the carpet during travel.

            Donna thought of these ....

              That is brilliant!!! I lay ours down on their side (we just use two of the chairs) and then stick a door stop under the seat to keep them in place. I like this MUCH better. Please let Donna know I will be borrowing her idea.

                MikeZ, you have a different table then ours. We have the traditional table and 4 of the same chairs. (I think both of ours were made in the same run around June of 2020.) I like your set up. I'll have to unscrew it from the floor, rotate, and remount it to the floor. Did I say I like your set up?

                  We do something similar, Dave, but the location of our Velcro cable ties are up near the top of the chairs so I don't have to get on the floor to install/uninstall them. Works great.

                    Im going to rotate my table also. I was just hoping a pic of the table in its new position would develop before next month . Seems like a no brainer. I will just put 2 of the chairs in storage

                      This is interesting. I will try lashing my chairs down as well. I haven’t tied or lashed my chairs down. I’ve driven over 10,000 miles on some very rough roads. The chairs haven’t moved. This is also after upgrading to the slipper springs and better shocks.

                        I have table straps also. I crisscrossed them for more leg room.

                          I think that turning the table 90 degrees would work out great for a couple. I was out at the storage lot today to drop off a few things at the trailer and decided to run the slide out for a couple pics. It's an apples to oranges example of what turning the table 90 degrees would look like. The table from the 35-5Z is 39" x 26". You'll get an idea of the look if you imagine the table being a little bit wider on each side and having the leg. I'm solo and usually have one chair on the side. It works out well for a monitor.
