Question Sunseeker 2300

I have a Sunseeker 2300 and I am having a problem with the drawer under the refrigerator, that won't latch closed.

The plastic latch to hold it closed is broken. Is there a latch to replace it that will last longer?

I had several of these latches fail, sometimes from faulty installation. The mounting screws they use are too short, and then they screw them into the edge of the plywood drawers and they come lose and out of alignment. My dealer got me some with heavier springs that seem to hold up.

If the screws are loose, take a wood toothpick or wood matchstick. Remove the screw then put a drop of super glue on the end of the toothpick or matchstick (not the end that you light on the matchstick!) and push it into the screw hole. Let the super glue dry then reinstall the screw. Or, get longer screws provided they don't go through the plywood.

Can't help where to get the replacement latch, although, Camping World might carry them.

In my previous motorhome (Solera) I had a drawer and a cabinet door that just wouldn't stay closed during travel. So I just went to my local hardware store and found some good, similar latches that worked great and solved the problem. They weren't an exact match but were stronger.
