My rod stays put but the clothes hangers leap from the rod and commit suicide.
I could but Jayco saved on wood for the rod by making it barely long enough to stay in place anyway

All our motorhomes have all had a rear closet well beyond the rear wheels and only the Jayco has the black wire loom covering on the clothes hanger rod to prevent everything from bouncing off and onto the floor.
An RV in most aspects is an RV.
Our motorhomes have been 35, 36, and 40' in length.

Look at the top of the hangers... the hook that goes over the bar over lap each other not allowing it to come off the bar. It addresses the bar issue not clothes slipping off

Those look easy enough to use and probably an inexpensive solution. What also might be needed is a little owner thought and care to close the top button of garments, and if hanging pants to hang them along with a shirt.

Try putting the hangers on backwards... so the hanger opening faces towards the closet door.. doing that fixed my problem... (and it is a cheap mod my favorite kind)

I cut a length of PVC pipe in half (2" I think)... I put the PVC half on top of the hangers and secure it with a few strips of velcro...

Haven't lost any clothes since I've done that.

These work great. Available at Amazon, Wally World and Camping World.

Stay Put Hanger | Tri Lynx Corporation

As to the rod I just added an extra block of 1 X 2 under each end.

I am with Grumpy. We have used these hangars for a long time with no problems. They snap over the rod and stay put. Easy to pull off the rod to transport clothes between the house and rv.

I've had the rod down several times after a trip. First thing I did was to put a piece of that foam swim noodle sliced down the middle along the top of the pole... that helped. I've tried securing the pole into the cup but that didn't work either. Best solution has been to use the lower rack cups for the pole (assuming yours has these). Since moving the rack to the lower height, all our stuff stays in place.

Also Costco has some non-slip velvet hangers for about $10 a box that work great for keeping your clothes from sliding off the hangers themselves.

Pvc pipe

Cut 1" PVC pipe in half length wise and Velcro down with strips on each end and middle. No mire problems.
