How do you secure items in basement pass-through storage?

Hello everyone,

We purchased a Precept 31UL this spring and so far are loving it. We recently purchased two zero gravity chairs and want to store them in the basement pass-through compartment. How do you keep your items in the pass though secure during travel? Sorry, the photo came through upside down (gotta love tech). Thank you, Sue

I used self-adhesive rubber tiles. I put them two rows deep on the pass-thru, on either side. Anything sitting on them stays put and anything between them can't slide past them. I used something like this:

I screwed tie down loops to the side walls of the compartments, then use bungie cords to hold the gear against the walls so it doesn't fall over or bounce around.

I have the same MH and zero gravity chairs and wrap one in a 72" x 80" Moving Blanket and the other chair on top of it. they never move and it protects them. The blanket is about $9.00.

I used stainless steel bolts with loops on the end to attach bungee cords to. I drilled holes in the compartment walls at predetermined locations and secured the bolts with SS fender washers on both sides and a SS nut and lock washer on the outside. They are very solid and won’t come loose as the coach bounces down the road. I don’t ever foresee removing them but it would be easy enough to plug the holes if that were the case.

I use the passenger side rear compartment in our 36T for our 2 air chairs, 2 folding chairs and folding table . I just wrapped a 1" tie strap around them and they all set on there side. Works great for us.

My advise (take it for what it's worth...maybe a penny), I had to replace my mother board for the LCI leveling system that is on the roof of the basement. The mobile repair guy advised that he thought I hit a bump, which caused the stuff in my basement to bounce up and hit the mother board causing the damage. I now have a plastic Tupperware container screwed in as a cover to protect it.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that.

Long rubber mat

I just use a rubber floor runner mat cut to length. Like everyone else mine is pretty full, with totes, wheel chocs and barbecue and such.
