We have a 2018 Raptor 355TS. We haul a golf cart or our RZRXP 1000. I cant keep either toy tight in the garage for the life of me. Ive upgraded to big heavy duty ratchet straps and use 4 wheel chocks with the toys ratcheted down hard onto the chocks. Every time i stop for fuel or we get where we are going, they have come loose and have shifted or the wheel is turned all the way one direction or the other. Its so frustrating. Whats the secret?

I wouldn't collapse the suspension completely - you're just asking for damage.

Is it as simple as not putting enough wraps of strap on your ratchet?

I've installed etrack and over-wheel tie downs for DW's trike. It was very difficult to access the hook points for straps. Over-wheel takes 30 seconds.

Purchase E-tracks and use 4 "over the tire" straps. E-Trailer and other ATV suppliers sell them. Did that on the SUV in our car trailer and no more movement after that.

X-2 Collapse the suspension and use the X strap configuration.

Use four straps, and make an x front and back. That's how we chain down heavy equipment on the float. Nothing ever moves.

I collapse the suspensions a bit. Never have an issue and I use ratchet straps.
