2011 378TS Pantry Modification

The DW did not like the wire rack pantry in the 378 from day one so I had to agree to make a modification, see following pic's. She really likes this much better.

Excellent Jim: how do you prevent the sliding racks from opening on the road in case the door opens?

I have 5 little locking bars that drop into a space between the door frame and the drawer front. I first tried a long velcroe strap and it held the drawers from sliding out but they would come out far enough to pop open the door. After overthinking a locking system it finally hit me on locking bars, easy, works like a champ.

Very nice addition. I don't think I want the DW seeing your pictures because I know what my next project would be!

Very, Very nice work!

Are you a cabinet person and made the drawers? Or, did you purchase them? If so, where?

Again, nice work. It sure beats the limited capacity wire racks.

Again Very, Very nice work! We're going fulltime at the end of January. I was going to make drawers for the pantry also.

Would you mind sharing your drawer deminsions? ALso, did you fix the drawer slide rails to the pantry sides with liquid nails or srews, or both?

Hopefully I'm not overstepping my bounds by asking for this.

Thanks, Pete

Very nice. I always felt the wire pullout was really just smoke and mirrors. You can hardly store anything on it.

pantry modification also

Thanks to JimF, I finally finished the drawers for my 378TS pantry, designed after looking at his modification over the holidays in Dallas. Thanks again Jim

I also made a side storage compartment by the sink for those "pesky" little sink "toppers", stove "toppers" and microwave/convection oven grates, etc. that we're always trying to figure out where to put them. This seemed the most logical to us.

Thanks again Jim for your idea, help and assistance.

Pete
