Drawer Removal

I have a 2012 27DBUD that the frame for the bank of drawers broke. I want to remove them and fix the frame myself. How do I remove the drawers? I BTW, am VERY disappointed in this trailer!!! The awning leaks, and still does after the dealer "fixed" it. The floors creak & all of the exterior was done poorly.

Normally there are releases on the sides of the drawers built into the slide brackets. Usually you just lift the up and it will release the drawer. This is if you have the metal ball bearing slides on the side of the drawer. If they run on a wood track in the center under the drawer there is usually a trick where you can lift the rear of the drawer at some place in the track. Some of the real cheap ones that are poorly built there is no way to remove these besides removing the slides themselves.

Just figured this out today on our new 30kfb. If the drawers slide on a bottom center rail, there is a tab on the slide attached to the drawer. Open it as far as it will go and depress the tab while pulling slightly on the drawer. The bottom of the vertical board our slides are attached to was connected to nothing at the bottom. No biggie, easy fix but there is no way someone couldn't have noticed it when they inserted the drawer.

If I remember right on the side of the tabs is pressed down and the other side of the drawer is pressed up.
