Ours came with a nylon strap you put thru D rings secured to the floor on either side of the chair.

My Jayco dealer said to turn the chairs upside down on the sofa and use the strap to hold them in place. I tried that one time and it was a real hassle. I went to Lowe's and bought a couple of surface mount "D" rings and bolted them to the floor right behind the chairs. Now all I do is turn them around facing the back wall and use a couple of adjustable nylon straps to hold them in place. A bunch easier. I am not familiar with your floor plan but there was adequate room to push the chairs in mine to the back wall to let the slides come in...opposing slides in the living room. I went with the surface mount "D" rings as opposed to the recessed "D" rings since I did not want to cut into the floor to install them. HTH

I went to camper world and bought an bought an sofa that fits where the 2 recliners went, I anchor them to the floor and now we can sleep an extra grandkid. To me the recliners we a pain, you had to pull them out to use the recliner , not enough room to swilve around. My two cents.
thanks

In the base rocker mechanism I found an unused hole, and I simply put a 5/16" bolt in, which prevents the chair from rocking. The chair is heavy enough to stay in place on the carpeted floor, and no longer moves at all while traveling. Then just remove the bolt when I get to the CG, and all is again normal.

We just got our 2013 361REQS and the recliners are back to back with a strap joining them together. Drove home for 5 hours and they were fine.

We turn ours on end onto the sofa, there are strap loops on the bottom of the rockers and the strap ends are built into the sofa. There is an adjustable strap that runs trough the rockers and clip to the straps attached to the sofa. No problem with movement this way.
