The nylon (or plastic) bracket that holds the drawer roller slide to the back wall has broken. Anyone know where we could buy a new one? We've tried Home Depot and Lowes - they don't have it.Any suggestions?

Thanks dj

Hi Donna and Chuck. That is a common "breakage" item. I got mine replaced at Saddleback RV when they were in Irvine. The parts dept. had them in stock. I would imagine they still have them in their new location.
I havn't gotten around to it yet, but intend to replace mine with something more substantial as it is only a matter of time before they break again.
Good Luck.

Received mine from WRV. they sent all 4. check alignment of tracks when you reinstall, one of mine was over an inch wider at the rear than front. easy job to replace, however you need long arms to reach screws. Larry

Mine also broke, and I replaced them with ball bearing slides from Lowe's. The plastic bracket is subjected to too much stress, and I felt it was likely to break again. I only replaced the slides on the drawer that broke so far, but I plan to eventually replace all of them.

Larry is right, you need long arms!!! If you have a few to do, you might consider this:

I wish I had this when I installed the slides. Now I have one, but haven't used it yet.

Thanks all - I agree the plastic is not a good item - too much weight etc. I want Chuck to replace all the slides so maybe I'll get him the jig mentioned for Xmas! Hint Hint! Thanks again. dj

Donna, the 06's and up have the ball bearing drawer runners, and the 400 hp that chuck has always wanted. We offer free gift wrapping.

Thanks so much for that link on the jig for the drawer slide. I have in the past replaced many drawer slides and have always had them just a little bit off. The jig would really really help there. Sooooooooooooo true... these short arms need to be a little bit longer for those back screws

This is a common breakage item for most all coach manufacturers. We had a 1999 Winnebago and I had to replace all of the drawer supports in it. Just wish the manufacturers would get the message that what they are supplying is JUNK.

To their credit, WRV did get the message. When we visited the factory for the tour last year, they had switched to the ball bearing slides. (See Lindsay's post above.) Unfortunately that was after our coach was built.

Donna & Chuck, are you referring to the secondary door catch that closes off your bedroom. If so, I believe I have some extra ones that I bought for my Monaco. Let me check and see if they are the same. Monaco used this style latch for their cabinet doors. If this is what you are looking for I will check and if I have some I will send you one. Please verify that this is what you need.

Ted - sorry I didn't get back to you re the drawer slide. Was on jury duty and now getting ready to Xmas. Anyway, the problem is with the slides in the drawers not the door. I think we are going to replace the current slides with the ball bearing one from Lowe's. Thanks.
Happy Holidays. dj
