The slide pantry cabinet started to sag a
bit when Lady Di loaded it up with cans and
bottles. The same happened when we had the
FB2200, so I've done the same fix. By adding one
more slide, it beefed it up adequately...

Ball Bearing Drawer Slides FAQ

Accuride Ball Bearing Slides At A Glance Comparison Guide

Please remember that slides are rated for XXlbs based on drawer WIDTH. Usually rated at 24" wide but check. If you aren't sure what your drawers weigh fully loaded, remove one from the cabinet fill with a load of food (err to the heavy side) and slap that sucker on the scales. You may be surprised (we once made a lady weigh her dishes after she broke 2 shelves in her home cabinets). It is better to use a drawer slide with a heavier rating than a lighter one, because you never know just what you'll end up putting in there. An Over-travel will allow you to access to all of your drawer too.

I gotta ask, what in the world are you all putting in the pantry to overload it??? We carry canned goods, seasoning, oil, and all shelves are full to the brim yet there isn't any kind of issue with it sagging, hard to open or close or anything like that.

Guess I'm the opposite here. Do you know I have not changed one thing except for adding batteries, adding an extension for my 20ft long sewer hose so it will fit in the existing compartment, and making my satellite connection work.

I do know what you mean. Sometimes, just sometimes... I can't help it either. Depends on what mood I'm in and how something strikes me!

Hi Tom,

King Salami and I had the same slide out cabinets in our WW FB2200's and we both
had them start to sag. We really beat the poop out of those trailers off roading plus lots
of miles on them.

King came up with the fix. He carries gallons of olive oil and I carry heavy bottles of adult beverage

I'm just doing preventative maintenance.

I see! I carry my large adult bottles in the cabinet under the stove, along with the rest of the medicinal needs. Put the cooking oil and such under the sink, all setting on the floor.

Guess since mine doesn't go off road, that takes care of the rest of it, eh.
