Drawer slide out broken

I have a 2018 sunseeker class C on a mercedes chassis 2400R. Bought used.

Drawer under sink slide is broken. I measured and its a 10" slide from closed to open. From rear wall where it attaches to the face of the cabinet is 22.5" long.
I tried to find some generic self locking slide so it doesnt open on the road, but it doesnt look like Im having much luck.

Does anyone have the part number or a diagram where i can look up the part number to order?


Thanks,
GG

What you're looking for is a 'drawer slide with positive hold in detent'. Several places make them, but Ovis is a good place to start.

Looks like you need a 22", but I'm concerned because you said that it only has a 10" extension. Most slides of that type are going to be full extension slides.

How about the soft close tracks. They seem pretty good.

Drawer Slides - Another RV Learning Experience

Welcome to the world of RV repair and "staple" replacement. Dollars to donuts the rest of your drawer slides are the same type as the broken one and will sometime "come apart" too. I will impart my own experiences with my drawers.
I have a 2015 Coachmen Concord 300TS class C. On our last trip, the top drawer in the drawer stack next to the stove and microwave "became" disconnected to one of it's slides.
Based on your measurements, it sounds the same as mine. It is winterized and covered so I can't measure right now. However, I found that the slide is manufactured in two pieces. The rear piece screws to the rear cabinet fixed mount point and the forward piece is the actual slide and is mounted in the front to the front cabinet frame. Now get this, the two pieces are PRESS FIT together where they come together/overlap even though there are holes that line up with each other for machine bolts and nuts to keep them together. Needless to say, I removed every slide in the stack and bolted all the slides together and reinstalled them. Problem solved. Prior to undertaking the repair myself, I looked around Home Depot and Lowes for something similar, but, not being a cabinet maker, was not sure what to get. I finally looked at the broken slide and figured out I could fix it BETTER than it came from the factory. Keep that in mind as you get to know your rig.

Seeker slides

We have a Sunseeker, and all of the drawer slides are of the full extension type, so I would guess that you have only to pull a bit harder for the drawer to fully extend.
Although full extension drawer slides are definitely more expensive, I'm thinking that FR used them universally to make mounting and inventory simpler.
There are two little plastic latches on the slides, which you need to operate (under normal operation) to remove the drawer, at which time you may repair the mounting or replace the slide in question. In some of the drawers, re-installation requires a helper on the opposite side of the drawer in question, or patience enough to get both sides started properly. I have done this on ours to enable access to install a volt meter just inside the door, and install a couple of other 12 volt items.

Further to my above reply

No matter what you repair in your rig, be sure to use Loctite Blue on any bolt and nut you tighten down. Everything is prone to vibrating loose over time on the road......

I bought replacement drawer slides from Rockler.com for my Sabre fifth wheel.

2 broken drawer slider

We have a Wildcat 5th wheel and experience slide failure on 2 different drawers. We went to Lowes and purchased the slides. The replacement slides were heavier duty than the OEM. The mounting holes were different but with a little patience was able to install. The rear end of the slide slid into a bracket mounted on the back wall. I used that bracket for the new slides which saved a lot of contortions under the cabinet
Good luck.

One measure of slide quality is the load capacity.

Years ago I built my own 6-foot bathroom vanity because the junk the lumberyard kept sending were so crappy. Like a typical kitchen piece, it had two cabinets with a 4-drawer stack between them. One of the two cabinets had a drawer above the two doors. The other had a lookalike blank to accommodate the lavatory sink (at one end to consolidate space to diaper a baby per DW's instructions).

I just knew that the kids would open the four drawers in a staggered pyramid to climb up onto the counter, so I used 100-lb slides. One poke with my little finger would close those drawers. I just ordered 60- or 80-lb slides for two drawers to be added inside existing kitchen cabinets. DW (different one) loves the existing drawers on each shelf that pull out so she can see everything in the cabinet without crouching down. I made these in 1995 when I renovated the kitchen. The new slides are at her request to finish the rest of the cabinets.

Slides come in two types: Those that attach flat to the sides of the drawers and those that have a flange that wraps around the bottom of the drawer.

And two styles: partial extension (can't pull the drawer completely out of the cabinet to see what's in it), and full extension (can pull all the way).

With that information (load, type, and style), and measurements of the slide length and thickness, you can safely order from Amazon or eBay at prices better than the woodworking sources.

Slides for drawers

We have a 2012 FR Surveyor, We have a cat that loves to open drawers, Much to my surprise, I found the bedroom lower drawer facing pulled off the rest. I found the craftsmanship was poor and only held together by tiny staples. Sad manufacturing. Wound up Gorilla gluing it back together. Worked like a champ since we could Never tack these little staples back in.
