John E Davies Posted August 3, 2018 Share Posted August 3, 2018 Please refer to this thread for info about the Macs tie downs used here. I ordered extras when I did that mod. http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/how-to-wire-cable-clothes-line-full-cabin-length/ I carry a telescoping ladder and two folding camp chairs in the closet, and they flop around on rough roads and make it harder to access stuff on the floor. The outer one sits on a curved surface, and there is not much space between the inner and outer walls. I cut off some #12 screws and used 3M VHB tape in the center to help fill the gap and to add some strength. The upper base sits on the inside closet wall, and I had a small inspection port there, so I mounted the base where I could reach in and feed the threaded backing plate into the correct position. There are water hoses RIGHT THERE, so you need to be careful if you use sheet metal screws. Don't drill through a hose! I used a 3 ft bungee cord doubled back on itself and secured the bottom part with a nylon tie wrap to keep it in place when disconnected at the top. It is a very secure restraint, but it doesn't put too much strain on the attach points. With my two large bins in place, there is a little more usable floor space since the chairs and ladder are now held tight against the front wall: John Davies Spokane WA 2 "Mouse": 2017 Legacy Elite II NARV (Not An RV) Two Beds, Hull Number 218, See my HOW TO threads: https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/john-e-davies-how-to-threads-and-tech-articles-links/ Tow Vehicle: 2013 Land Cruiser 200, 33" LT tires, airbags, Safari snorkel.
