Our 2014 298RLDS came with recliners and we do not have the tie downs either. The recliners are a bit heavier and have a circular base so they don't move as much. We do the same with the recliner with the slide and the other one we have the back facing the end table and put a pillow between the chair and table. We haven't had any issues with the chair going forward or moving.
On our 26RLS we had the chairs back to back with the end table in between and put a strap around the middle back part of the chairs where the seam is that held the rocker chairs in place. One was held by the slide and the other was strapped to it. Never had any issues with traveling over 10,000 miles. Hope this helps.
