Our new to us Blue Ridge 3025RL has a wheeled kitchen island. When we got home with it the first time last week (200 I95 miles) said island was laying on it's side. Montana shares this floor plan and probably other Keystone models as well.
There are floor anchors and the strap was tight. It needs to be mid room so the opposing slides can close fully.
The counter top is heavy and juts out on one side so that stools can be in play, and it toppled to that side. Drawers are in play so I can't transport it upside down.
I'm thinking wedges might do it, or change the counter top so it's not so side heavy. The floor anchors seem flimsy, and stronger ones could be a trip hazard. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Is it strapped front to back or side to side? I would get a long strap, wrap it once around the countertop and strap front to back. Locking the wheels would also be a good idea.

Place it Mid floor......close slides/check for any issues with slides or counter.
If Good......Screw that rolling cabinet to the floor permanently

Obviously designed by non-RVers who never camped a day in their life. Are you reading this Charlie and Warren? Or is Forest River small potatoes? (Forest River, Inc., A Berkshire Hathaway company)

If the rv has more storage just get rid of it . If you need the cabinets/drawers then like already said, screw it down.

Seems to me, extra recessed floor anchors might be in order. Might have to add anchors on the island, too. I was thinking of doing something like this had I bought a different FW.

Large things that move should not have large movable things inside of them. Some non RVer thought that an island on wheels was a good idea.
