For the straps to work you need to be 16 or less and have time on your hands as you break camp. Just find them useless unless you are packing up for a very long trip and don't plan on using the RV anytime in the near future. As described in previous post, as I was pondering the "how do these straps work" mystery, I couldn't find a place to sit because there were pillows and 3 or 4 small rugs rolled up on the couch and chairs. Hmm!! I said to myself, I have all this readily available packing material maybe I can use it for dual purpose and just chuck these stupid straps. The thin cheap pillowcase chair covers are intended to prevent the chair backs from rubbing against the wall and the chair next to them. In my case there is no chair next to another because I have removed the unneeded extras, but still place the covers over the remaining chair back before folding a throw rug over it. A tote sits comfortably on the chair seat on each side [one w/o a cover for the taller stuff] that are used as organizers for table top stuff. Our White Hawk has a center island and the large slide drawls the table to within a few inches of the island. Nothing rubs, but a rug over the outer end of the table keeps everything snug and prevents rattling during rough road travel.
Some things in RV's are well engineered from experience and feedback from previous owners. I suspect straps are not one of these items. My thinking is that if something is of ??uable value and does not have an alternate use, it goes to the barn. Come to think of it that may be where I stashed the straps.
