I am with Mary and Pat. Put the chairs under the table, set the footstools in the two recliners and off we go. We use the non-skid pads on the counters and on the buffet. Seldom have anything move, even on rough roads. Never had a chair or footstool move. We are pretty heavy with 4 slides and ceramic tile floor. That may have something to do with it but we ride pretty smooth

DW loved the ottomans but hated that when she used them to rest her feet they would slide. I took the legs off and wrapped them with anti slip material and reinstalled.

I loved the ottomans but when we slid in to leave my back didn't. Found that if I leave them positioned as they are used that the slides close just fine and the area is usable when stowed. Now we get there, slide out and wallah! They are ready to use!

End results: DW happy, Back happy.

Use strap to secure chairs

I second this. Exactly what we do. The upside down ottoman is perfect place for our waste basket to ride in too.

I third this.... chairs have never moved in all of our travels. We have wheel locks on our ottoman...it pretty much stays in place while we are driving.

Sounds like you have the dinette. You are supposed to have a long strap that loops through the bottom of the table and around the chairs. If you can put the ottoman between the chairs everything may stay put. Check your owners bag for the strap and instructions. My advise to you is to spend time with the books that came with the coach before you get too far down the road. It is amazing what you will learn and frustrating when you can't find the answer there. That is when you come here and experiences are shared.

I love the auto start for the generator. When the dry dock times happen the auto start for the generator is fantastic to have. The house batteries are automatically charged and the AC/heat is also powered when needed.

Have fun in your new rig.

Rick

Thanks Rick, I'll look for the strap when I get back home. I've been thru all three manuals a couple times but right now I'm in Alaska and the Journey is in Arizona. We're still trying to figure out all the whistles and bells. We upgraded from a Winnebago View. No more ladders to climb to go to bed. LOL

Very nice upgrade!

Section 9-2 in your Operators Manual.

I don't think of going to Alaska this time of the year. We are, unsuccessfully I must admit, NOT avoiding the cold. And we are in TX at the moment. April will bring us to Prescott Pines and warmer weather, I hope.

Once you get the bugs worked out I am certain you will enjoy journeys in you Journey. We love our 40U, though we have had to deal with a few issues. I hope you cupboard bottoms are built better than ours. I have had to repair two of them. I have had a couple of plumbing leaks, but that is to be expected from a house on wheels. The crown molding was poorly done and I will rework at some point.

We have the auto start generator system. It works like a charm! With the 6 pack of AGM's and the 2800W Magnum, the electrical system is great, strong and reliable when Walmarting. We do this between most projects we work. We are not your traditional campers.

Hope your time in AK is enjoyable and safe travels back to AZ.

Rick
