'99 Tradewinds - Drawer Challenge

Hi again everybody. I now have a new challenge that I hope somebody who is smarter than me can figure out. Does anybody know how to release the drawer glides on the under counter galley storage drawers? I have tried everything I can think of but without success. Here's a photo of the drawers I am referencing.

Pull drawer out until it stops, then give it a strong stead pull. It will come out.

Think #2 is correct. Could be a nylon doohickey that has to flex inward or forward, for the drawer to come out.

Nope.. It won’t come out that way. Every other drawer in the coach comes out just by giving it a strong pull once it reaches the end of its travel. These won’t budge. They act like there must be some sort of release catch holding them in but I can’t find one. These drawers have two glides on the bottom of each one and the drawers are about 24” deep so I think these glides are more heavy duty and are different from those on the smaller drawers throughout the rest of the coach which have a single glide down the middle of the bottoms. I even tried removing the screws that hold the glides to the drawers but there is one more screw on each side that I can’t get to without the drawer coming out a couple of inches further that needs to be removed to get the drawer loose from the glide. I’m totally stumped at this point.

Could there be a little lever on the slides that releases them. Look under the drawers and see how they look.
I've seen side slides that have some type of release like that.

my 7370 had drawers that look like yours under my table bench seats. I took the carpet out bottom of the drawer to acess the screws then could get screws attaching slide to the bottom wood.

Never did get slides seperated.


I left my whole drawer ( floor level) out to give more room for couch/bed pillows and covers. Now have to acess by picking up table bench seat, gave lot more room for storage.
