When we took ownership of our 5th wheel some of the furniture was tied down but not all. The reclining chairs that are part of the living room are the chairs in question. How to you secure this type of chair so it does not do damage to the walls or the chair itself?
We have a Newmar Cypress 08 that was purchased in 09. Newmar will not stand behind these chairs because they feel it is our problem and not one that is inherent in the trailer.

You have two other alternatives if the manufacturer does not choose to fix the chairs. The first is to take the chairs to an upholstery shop and find
