Hi Ernest~

Thanks so much for speaking with Ed. He enjoyed the chat too.

How much height did you need for this? Our compartment opening is 23 inches across and it looks pretty square to me, I think.

23" will work IF you get the slide deck as low as you can...

Ernest917,

Could you post the company website or phone number of where you purchased the slide rails and what length of rail did you buy?

Oy, I sure hope I measured the compartment properly. Your compartment looks so much bigger than mine.

Tonk Mom...

My compartment is an entire basement area.... The only space issue I had was making sure I had the clearance, top and bottom, to allow it to slide in and out.... Without seeing an actual picture of the compartment, inside and out, you plan on using, I can't really tell what issues you might have....

csichoice....

I found my slides in the classified section of a MH magazine issue for $100.... I have found numerous sources through google that sell the slides only but they are more expensive ... As I stated in an earlier post, my investment $100 for the slides, $125 for all materials and a tad over $500 for ref/freezer unit... I'm sure I saved tons by doing all the labor myself which took approx 5 hrs including construction/installation of slide and AC/DC wiring for unit....

My slides are heavy steel units made up of three 48" long telescoping pieces that when fully extended are 94" long. They have a 400 lb carrying capacity....

When fully extended , the ref slides clear of the open MH kitchen slide above it...

Ernest, will you please post a photo of the slides I need to buy so that I can start shoppping around? You said you saw some on line, but were pricey. That will let me know what I need to buy.

Thanks yet again.

How many inches? I see only 36 for that price and yours is 48 extending to 96. Remember, ours will be installed using the length, not the width like yours.

Thanks so much. We just dropped off the motor home to have a PDI and have the recall work done on the refrigerator. Tomorrow we have to bring it to a Ford dealer to check the engine and chasis. The only RV dealer around here only sells/services RV's that don't have motors so we have to go to two places.

Look what I got!!!!

Ernest, since we are putting the freezer in lengthwise, rather than widthwise like yours, do I need a different size slides? I see that you have yours coming out much further than the RV so that you can open something on top. I just want to pull out the freezer the length of it, which is 28 inches I think.
