The reason is Escape cuts them too big. The corners are rounded in the 19 and in order to lay flat you would need to have the cushion to fit against the flat exterior wall up to the corner, not around the corner. I asked Escape to cut/trim mine smaller in the new one so that the cushions will lay flat.

I believe Escape is now trimming their cushions a little smaller to lay flat. Also with the "U" shaped dinette they are now providing 5 cushions including 2 small corner cushions. So the issue should be resolved. Perhaps the older ones can be trimmed to make the adjustment.

Jon, was it the glue to the wall that failed or the glue to the cushion back?

The glue to the wall. It stuck fine to the cushion. I did use a 2" x 3" piece of industrial Velcro - maybe less energetic stuff would work better. It only came off the wall in hot weather when I tried to remove the cushion to get in the storage compartment...

Right. Have an alternative plan I am going to try: bought wide ribbon I will pin to back of cushion at each end and running down wall and underneath seat where I will staple to the wood. Might work. Stay tuned if so.

Suggestion Myron! Use brass or stainless steel staples. Regular old metal will rust and may stain your upholstery. (Do they even make brass staples?)

I was thinking about snaps...one on each end might suffice.

New plan to keep dinette cushion back in place seems to be working.

Test results this morning: Cushion doesn't flop down like before. It does try, but top of cushion only gets 4-5 inches away from wall. Ribbon prevents a total flop-down. Think this 4-5 inch gap can be closed by applying velcro to the right side of the cushion (to glass, not vinyl) where it may stick better/longer.

We used a piece of self adhesive velcro about 2x4 inches. We had to stitch it to the cushion, but it stuck to the door gable and bath wall fine. Has been working for about 4 years now.
