Kitchen drawers

We lost some items out the back of the drawers under the stove in our '98 National Tradewinds Motorhome. Is there a way to get the drawers out to retrieve my items? We have tried several things and nothing works. Would appreciate help on this. Thank you.

Side mounted glides > open the drawer and lift up. Some older models had a lever at the rear on each slide that had to be pushed down to release the drawer. This lever is like a teeter totter, pushing down on the front of the lever raised it in the back to release the drawer.

Good Luck

On most National RV's pull the drawer out till it stops, now just keep pulling out and wiggle the drawer side to side.

Kitchen Drawers

Pulling hard and wiggling from side to side worked on getting the drawer out.

But did you get the drawer back in? Reverse technique?

The keep pulling method is not working for me on the two large deep drawers in kitchen of 2000 Tradewinds 3731. These have dual undermount slides. Any ideas?

Yes . Actually it was quite easy to put the drawer back in. Husband just lined it back up with drawer slide and was able to get it back in and it works just like it should.

I am having the same issue with the dual bottom slides on the large drawers in the cabinet between the sofa and kitchen in our '99 Tropical 6371 . Dual bottom slides. Appear to be "friction" type Accuride slides. Anyone had success removing them? And did the drawer them go back in (or did all the ball bearings just fall out?)

TropiCal-Tex that's the same drawers I was referring to. I called Accuride about the undermount slides. I was told to contact:

Sent several emails including photos showing the "07 99" stamped in the metal, NO reply, been several weeks. See if you have better luck, post response.
