I had several drawers in kitchen and bedroom come flying out on the 6th wheel. The bracket actually broke the wooden vertical member.
I had new latches installed and no problem now.

Doors/drawers that open on the road are especially troublesome when they can get hooked by a slide as it's extended. I tore a pantry door off the hinges with the slide. A friend tore off a door pull and the trim on the slide. My wife found "surface bolts" at Home Depot. They look good and are relatively easy to install. About $5 each.

Child Safety latches are the best secondary containment

Thanks for this! This is absolutely the only issue we've had with our new 2016 Roo and its been driving me nuts. Wasn't going to drive an hour to the dealer and have the Roo out of commission for who knows how long just for this. I was going to wait for the end of camping season to bring it back. Now maybe I can fix it myself.

We had the drawer under the stove come open on the trip home in April.


finally I saw the problem that was not easy to see. Both of the drawer guides that are on the cabinet had a broken piece that held the drawer lock and when you opened we had to lift up and pull out. That was an easy cheap fix.

Thanks, I'll look at them this weekend. Sorry, they are the smaller kitchen cabinets for towels and silverware. I need them to stay shut. The main culprit is close to my ATV's, but the Harley is going in there next trip and that drawer will be sitting on the side of the highway if it opens and dings up that paint.

That one looks like it's installed slightly crooked, so maybe it just needs readjusting. I have a couple others that open too, on the other side under the TV. They are all the smaller drawers.
