Dinette cushions falling

Any ideas to keep the backrest cushions from falling over. We thought about self stick Velcro but are afraid to damage the wall.

Do you have the "U" option, the corner cushions hold ours up. But if the have the stock, like our 19 was, they just flop over sometimes.

ours do not fall over since adding the pool noodle behind them, at least not ery often. This does not inure the corner ones on the U, those fall over all the yime, no noodle.

You put the doodle behind the vertical side cushion to give it an angle and more lower support.

We have been using the smaller size pool noodle which works quite well for us.
The angled cushion is much more comfortable!

Do not use Velcro glued to the liner on the wall, almost impossible to remove plus it does not work to hold the cushions in place.Been there , done that.

We use about a 3" pool noodle. At $1 or so for a 4 ft long pool noodle you can try different diameters and decide which works best for your trailer. We even inserted a pool noodle into the cushion back for a lumbar support, there is plenty of fabric on the stock cushions to do this.

I tried the noddle on the way home from my pickup and it was a bit too small for me. I put a roll of Bounty paper towels behind one cushion intending it to be a temp fix and it was perfect.

I've not seen a noodle that thick yet.

Wife bought these nice cushions which tend to hold the back cushion up, except on the roughest roads, and make for a great back rest while comfort reading.

Nice idea! You may have just saved me a 100 bucks. We have a West Marine High Back Chair for my wifeís side. Am going to add one to my side but missed the 79.00 sale a couple months ago. Iím waiting for the next sale so maybe Iíll try your idea in the mean time. Thanks.

One nice thing about having the flip up tables on both sides of the dinette, they keep the cushions in place. It's the corner cushions that fall down in Ten Forward. I've found if I jam something in the corners (by the flip up tables) the corner cushions fit tight enough they stay up too. Maybe that's where I should put a pool noodle.... hummm.

I'm not calling it the greatest, but applying Velcro to the side of the cushion and the side wall is working for me.
