Red face Storage drawer under couch...

Hi Again my new BFF's..
I really like this forum especially since I am really new at all this RV stuff but love learning how to do things myself as much as possible. I am pretty handy and more then willing to learn.

I was slowly loading up my "Winnie" 2009 View and I wanted to put some blankets underneath the couch/bed in the drawer and I noticed that the whole back of the drawer and right hand corner was pulled out of the cheap pressboard back. It has those twist lock attachments that attach the sides together as you will see in the picture I have attached to this post. I think I can fix this myself if I could get the drawer out. It looks like many kitchen drawers that I have taken out before. The owners manual does not address this. Do you think I can fix it by myself? If so how?

You could probably line everything up and use some small angle brackets. I'd use some good wood glue also.

If you look at the side if the drawer slides there will be a black small lever on each one. You hold one up and the other down. That should unlock the slides so you can remove the drawer.

You have to hold the levers up/down when pulling on drawer just like you were opening it.

To re-instal just line up the rail so it engages the ball bearings on the slide mounted in the frame with the rails mounted on the drawer. It will resist some when you push the drawer back in. That is normal,

Tried cleaning up post...

Use a good glue, I generally use Gorilla glue, You may have to attach l channel to the corners though.

Our 2010 WGO Vista 30W Class A had the exact same problem. If you're handy with a few handtools, it's an easy fix. I, on the other hand, am not handy so I took it to a local cabinet maker whose grand son takes on odd jobs.

He glued & screwed 3 strips of wood under the drawer running from front to back. He also attached the front and back to the drawer bottom using small wooden cleats. The drawer is now completely rigid and works well.

WGO was in cost control mode in 2009 & 2010 so things like this drawer often got short shrift.
