Furniture pads. Stack 2 on each side of bracket and that should fix dancing fridge.

This is the part number of the 50" strap from Trekwood Rv Parts & Supply. This is a Keystone dealer so the only thing to enter is in the part name/ part number in the search area. The number is 294111, this is a 50" nylon strap with offset buckle and "D" rings which you fasten this too the fridge wood walls. I placed two small pieces of wood behind the facia boards, to add extra support.

Thanks Rollingdunder. I'll take a look at that. It does seem to roll way to easy.

move refrig out from back wall. Undo top screw on hinge on right side. Put big L bracket in using that same screw. Push it back into place. Put in a LARGE lag bolt/screw into the wood frame of the slide.

Bandjcarm, just the one bracket or did you do both sides?

Only one possible since the refrig is resting against only one side where there is wood to connect to.

FROG Techs did this.......but it came loose. I just left Amish Family RV Services yesterday and they looked at it, removed the bolt, said it was too short, and put in a big honking lag bolt. 600 miles later, it's still firm.

I had the same problem with my slide. I have info you need to know about but way to much to go over on this site. my gear packs were replaced 3 times with out fixing the problem. If you want this info, p.m. me and I will give contact info to explain.

I have a 2016 36ckts with residential fridge and was wondering why mine wasn’t moving. I took my flashlight out and looked for bracing and this is what I found. Looks quite simple and has worked for two years now. It’s a 1 1/2” screw on each side.

I also took the time to sweep the coils clean under the unit while I had the cover off.

Cody1884,
My trailer is at the dealer right now being repaired. The dealer service adviser who reviewed the trailer said that the upper LH outside corner was pushing down of the gear set and rack causing the over pressure on the engagement of these two components. The dealer is replacing both gears sets and racks, they will also adjust the slide so it does not behind up when closing.

I will check this out closely when we pick-up the trailer next week.

Thanks I might be P.M. you if this is still an issue.
Jim

2016 33 IK fridge fell out

The brackets on the top broke from the wall. The bottom piece of wood came out of the floor. it was leaning against the table. It is a mess. I took it to a local dealer (we were on vacation) and they had no clue how to fix it. They said it is a design flaw that should be fixed by Forest River. It is temporarily fixed but how knows how long is will stay in place. I would appreciate any feedback. I plan to contact Forest River.

Here's my kinda crude solution to keep fridge/freezer doors shut.

Found the drilled and tapped holes for hinges on left side of fridge.



Threaded rod in wooden handle with soft velcro to prevent scratching.




Threads into first hole.






Keeps fridge/freezer doors closed during travel.
