Are you sure it was the fridge? My converter is under the fridge and it has a large fan. My Dometic is pretty quiet.

Drawer Guide Release

Useful tidbits like this are conspicuously absent from the owners manual.

Help!

Dear NeilM,
The attached picture is a drawer guide that is not mounted on a drawer. Notice the black plastic lever. You should see one of these on each side of the drawer when you have it pulled out. On one side you will need to press this lever down, and on the other side press it up. This should release the drawer. You can then inspect the guides and see what is going on.

Drawer not aligned

SabreSam,
Thanks for the photo. It worked.
I've attached a picture of the drawer looking down. you can see the gap (a little more than 3/8") on the left side.

To me, it looks like the drawer guides are not perpendicular. I'm 400 miles from the selling dealer and 75 miles from the closest Forest River dealer. Is the backplane (that the guides attach to) screwed and glued or just screwed?

Re attaching PinBox Cover

SabreSam,

My dealer had to remove the white plastic pinbox cover when they installed a new pin box upgrade on my 32 RCTS. I would like to re-attach it myself, but the mounting holes no long align properly due to the new pin box being shaped slightly different. I can hit one existing screw hole on each side, but I would like to add a couple more on each side. It looks like the self tapping scews go through the plastic and tap into the pin box mounting frame.

Do u think it would be ok to add a couple of "new" holes on each side. I don't want to hit anything nor do I want to weaken anything critical..

Thanks

Dear Customer,
the support for the guides is screwed. The guide may have shifted or even cracked. Let me know if I can be more help.

I don't want to guide you wrong, so I have a question. Are you wanting to drill more holes in the extended king pin or more holes upward (under the king pin, upwards toward bedroom floor)? You should be able to trim the cover if needed.

It is firmly affixed at the wrong spot. Nothing is broken or cracked. I will move it. Thanks for your help.

More holes upward into the bedroom floor. It looks like I'd be drilling through the bracket that the Pin box bolts to.

You should be fine. Try to use short screws. Predrill holes in the cover if needed. Don't just put a screw through the plastic, predrill a little bigger hole so the cover has a little room to grow in the hot and cold.

I hadn't thought about enlarging the holes in the cover. Thanx SS
