Check your Cabinet's SV34

Discovered that the cabinets over the sofa were separating in the 2021 SV34. Thor made a dog leg out to make room for the roller shade to fit behind the cabinets. Screws are used to fix the cabinet to the wall and for the back panel but staples were used for the most critical connection, the one with vertical stress. Easy fix with some good screws and a angle adapter for the drill/driver.

Proof how particle board and staples are a VERY poor structural choice...

I would drill from the top well into the cabinet frame, glue on the edge, then carefully drive LONG screws into the pre-drilled holes... which I see that you did!

Nice catch. Thank you for posting. One more job to add to my While I'm at it list while fixing the front cap.
