Another dumb newbie question

OK, we took our "virgin" trip with the RV this weekend and had a great time. Everything worked but I have a few upgrades I'm going to do, and I also have a dumb question for you.

First, the upgrades. I'm going to have my repair guy install a Safe-T-Plus system on the front end to see if that stops the wandering. We were on a 2-lane highway with almost no wind blowing and I felt like I was fighting the wheel. The road was not deeply rutted but the RV felt like it was constantly fighting the road.

Upgrade #2, I bought one of those gizmo's that allows you to tap into the propane line between the tank valve and the regulator so I can run a line out to use our propane grill. The plumbing on the gizmo fits the new propane plumbing but the plumbing on the RV is considerably smaller so it won't work. I'm going to take the RV into Camping World so they can see if they have the proper fittings to do the conversion.

OK, now for the dumb question. I have a pullout pantry between the galley and the bedroom slide. There's something at the bottom of the metal pantry rack that won't release it to slide out. I've pushed and prodded and pulled on everything I can see down there but can't find the release.

Help????

Couple of suggestions.

1. Put your coach model in your signature. It appears you have a Cayman, but I'm not sure.

2. Be sure the tire pressures are set correctly for the weight. If your pressures are too high, coach will wonder. 4 corner weights are best, but at least each axle. Then using the tire mfg's chart for that weight, set the pressures.

3. I doubt the safe-T Plus will help much with the tracking/wondering. Didn't the Cayman's have a major trailing arm issue/recall? If so, I would talk to source engineering in Oregon BEFORE I did anything.

Bill, thanks for the suggestion. I tried to call Source Engineering but they had already closed. I'll call them first thing in the morning.

Anyone have any suggestions on the pantry pull-out that won't?

I see you updated your signature.

Here is a thread going right now about the trailing arms. You may already have read it.

I don't have a pantry as you describe, so can't be much help. Maybe post pictures?

Possibly something fell down there and jammed? Just throwing out ideas.
