We travel with our dual recliners back to back up close to the wall also. We put a blanket over one to help with the rubbing but don't strap them down really tight. They can still move slightly without much problem but the strap holds them also. Not had a problem so far and been on about ten trips I would say so far.

We decided to remove one of the rocker/recliners for our trip west across Canada so I also wanted to tether the chair to keep it from moving. In our case the chairs move toward the center of the 5er or the inside of the slide and slightly to the rear of the slide. So I devised some straps to do just that. It can still rock but shouldn't make contact with any walls.
I used some white chinstraps from hockey helmets and small carabiners to hook on to the base that are anchored to the floor with 1/2" screws (have to make sure the screws aren't longer than the thickness of the slide floor). I cut a black chinstrap in half loopining through a key ring and attached it to the round metal base hoop, spoke with a self drilling/tapping sheet metal screw. This way the tether strap will remain on the floor out of the way and the smaller black loop wil not interfere with the operation of the rocker/recliner. I will attempt to post some pictures.

I tried to post 5 pictures in total but it didn't do it so I may have to post them individually.

When I took the pictures they were upright, posting them turned them upside down. Anyway you get the idea.

I solve the problem of the moving Rocker/Recliner Chairs by creating a loop in a short piece of rope and attaching two of these loops to each end of the frame of the sofa/bed. When I travel I place the two Rocker/Recliner Chairs beside each other in front of the sofa and run a strap between the two loops and across the arms of the chairs until the strap is snug. This then anchors the chairs to the sofa.
