Fix for Seneca closet depth

Clothes hangers did not fit in the bedroom closet unless turned about 30 degrees which effectively removed about a foot or more of hanging space. The hanging rods are too far forward toward the door so I moved the rod rearward.
On the outer ages of the closet there is a backing panel used to attach the rod holder. Neither of these are placed sufficiently rearward (as facing the closet) to result in a 100% fix. I added a 1/2" x 4" x 4' board (trimmed to fit), liquid nailed it to the side and reattached the rod as shown in the picture. Hangers now fit!

The left side's rod movement was impeded by the W/D access panel and the backing plate so I could only move it back about 3/4" but it helped some. Included this design boo-boo and others in a letter to Jayco so hopefully future buyers will start with a full closet.

The way things are going for some, just having a full deck of cards is enough.

The father of the breeder I purchased my Boxer dog from, had just purchased his 5th wheel and was preparing to go on vacation, and was diagnosed with advanced Alzheimers, so trip cancelled.

Life's issues just comes at you, regardless.

Just receive my confirmation notice of my upgrade to a Certified RV Service Technician, Electrical Specialist. Now I'm considering having a part-time Mobile service.

People who use their coach for extended periods and travel north to south (last trip 40 to 100 degrees) will find that the loss of a foot or more of hanging space is an issue…that's 1/2 the hanging space in some TT's and 5W's. Even the HJ with it's DP kind of bedroom layout might have an unpleasant surprise in store for them. I looked at an HJ recently and it appeared to have the same problem. Someone contemplating full timing will really be disappointed.

I don't know Walt, most of the full-timers I have chatted with are kind of like you, they just don't get all wired up about the small stuff. They just fix it like you did and then fix the next problem that comes along on their journey.
