2109s drawers and shower (not related)

Hello all,
Loving my 2015 2109s camper I got last spring.
Couple of questions for the group. What do most do about the shower? I cant for the life of me take a shower without water getting all over the floor any mods that worked well??
Second is the 3 drawers to the right of the stove, I cant get them to stay closed during travel. The design seems really dumb to me wonder if anyone had a better solution.
Thanks in advance for any advice!

For my Vibe I bought a longer shower curtain and I installed some of these Shop Weiman Products 2-Pack White Splash Guards at Lowes.com but mine have grooves in them to hold the shower curtain.

Hello causual_T. I had the same problem in my 2109 and someone, I think it was in this forum, suggested using child safety catches to keep my drawers from fully deploying while in transit. They work well. I purchased mine at Lowes. Brand is Dreambaby safety catches. Item # 434965. Model # L181. Easy to install.

We have the Flagstaff version and I would suggest adding a plastic liner with weights in the bottom of them for the Shower curtain. Additionally, as others have suggest, add the splash guards.

We also added some cheap kid latches I bought at Walmart to fix the drawers sliding out.

We used some command hooks to hang a few things in the corner of the shower so we don't have to reach out of the shower and get the floor wet. A small basket from Walmart holds travel size soap and shampoo. It hangs off the command hooks since the suction cups that it came with don't stick to the textured wall.

The 2 left over command hooks are on the cabinet by the door to hang trailer and truck keys.

We have a 2109S. I installed the guards as others have suggested. Also I keep that corner of the trailer just a tad low when leveling. Other than that all you can do is be careful and do the military shower thing.

On the guards from lowes also check home depot they have the same type pf guard except its rither 24 or 36" high. Works a lot better than theshort ones.

I had the same problem with those drawers. Dealer attempted repair by installing another set of aftermarket drawer catches; but it was a hack job at best. I eventually took all the catches and slides off; filled the holes and just re-installed the drawers. Generally speaking, the cabinets in most RV's are knocked together quickly with few, if any square corners. The drawer slides need to be installed to accommodate these imperfections. Install the front of the slides on the front cabinet cross rail and about a 1/16" out from flush with the front of the cabinet. Adjust the rear of the slides up or down to make the drawer front as close to parallel with the front of the cabinet as you can get it. The latches will then work.

..or hire a real finish carpenter or cabinet maker to fix them for you. Under no circumstances have a regular RV dealer do this kind of detail work! ;-)

Tried to have it fixed by a local dealership under warranty but it really was not any better.
