Subpar drawers

I have a 34RE and the drawer under the sink was so cheaply constructed it fell apart. Luckily I'm a woodworking enthusiast and rebuilt the drawer.
Also had to rebuild the drawers in the entertainment area.
Too bad Amish made doesn't always mean quality. I'm sure the Amish would never try to sell these cheap drawers.

Lately, my drawers have been subpar too.

But the drawers in my Cedar Creek are one of the highlights of it..........'soft close' and well made.

Odd.........

The bottoms of the drawers fell apart. I agree the soft close is great.

The drawer sides were stapled together and the bottom fell out. The bottom appears to be a 1/4 inch in thickness. I built the sides out of half inch poplar and dovetailed them together. I also used 3/8 inch plywood for the bottom.

We have a 2014 36CKTS and had the same issues with poor quality of drawers especially under the kitchen sink. The bottom fell out and my husbands had to rebuild.

Sad that we need to do this. I'm in the process of rebuilding all of the drawers.

I rebuilt our drawers over last winter after the bottoms fell out. The drawer bottoms looked to be 1/16" thick and just stapled to the back panel. I took them apart, glued and screwed everything and cut new thicker bottoms. I don't expect the same quality as I have in my house but it is a shame they aren't built better.

That is the "craftsmanship" we hear is sooooo great! Ours has NOT failed yet, so I am going to check them out soon!
Heading to The Rally from middle GA tomorrow morning. Was leaving yesterday but our 2500 Dodge fell sick. Water pump went out, blew belt and more. $1,365 today and it feels better!! Not to scare anyone, but many of these HD trucks have all hydraulics hooked together. Once the pump blew, LOST ALL STEERING AND BRAKES!! Thankful it happened within 100 ft of leaving our rv pad at the resort where we keep it! We WERE ABOUT TO TRAVERSE 70 miles of 2 lane mountain roads to get over to I 75 north! Boonies and nothing out there!
There were no symptoms or warnings! Just had it in the shop for fluids change and checks prior to this trip. This unit has always been maintained and serviced ONLY BY DODGE dealerships that specialize in diesels.
Safe travels!
