I wrapped the pole with the nonskid cabinet liner.

Use the Stay Put Hangers made by the Lynx leveler people.


x2. they are also a little shorter between the hanger and hook so if you have a short closet, it helps give more room between shirts and bottom of closet.

Have the tires and wheels balanced on a HUNTER GSP-9700.

Add CENTRAMATIC wheel balancers.

Have trailer shock absorbers installed.

Align trailer axles. Check individual wheel braking force.

Dial in the hitch rigging on a certified scale.

Worse is happening to your trailer than clothes falling off the rod.

Pack enough clothes into closet that would normally fit in three closet's, the tightness of the clothes keeps them from moving. DW's solution.


That's funny! That's probably why the all fall off, trying not to take everything I own and stuff it in there LOL. Always take to much then have to haul it all out of there.

IMO you obviously don't understand the dynamics of a TT towed behind a TV.

None of those items you listed will prevent clothes from coming of the bar in a closet.

A cheaper form of LarryJM's idea.

I use a length of 3/4" PVC pipe laid on top of the hangers and bungied to the main rod with a couple of loop type tarp bungies.

Really? Once I finished the above work on mine (as applicable) I never had hanging clothes come off of the closet rods again. And trashed the foam and other materials the PO had installed on them. Same for cabinet doors and the rest.

What was it I "misunderstood"?

I have a spring rod that fits across so I'm going to try that with the bungee around both the spring rod and the main rod and see how the next trip goes.

Thanks everyone for all your help, much appreciated!

This getting a little goofy. One person is talking keeping hangers on the rod(which is a varible anyways as mine are 4 foot long and several are only 2 foot).

the other SA person is talking "Clothes falling down". Get it?

Also if I had to do all the stuff that one poster said to keep my rig towing properly I would be look'n at another rig. But then I only tow 12 to 15 thousand miles a year LOL
