I've had nothing but problems with every drawer latch in my 2018 Thor Freedom Elite 24FE. Camping World has repaired/replace each and every one at least once since I purchased the unit new from CW in Tucson.
I've decided that using bungee cords is not particularly attractive and only so-so effective. I would like to know how to proceed with the project on my own, beginning with how to remove the drawers.
You need to pull out the drawer. On each side of the drawer in the track should be a black lever/bar that you need to either push up on one side and down on the other side to pull out the drawer. If the drawers are using the push/pull latches, you can buy new ones with a strong pull required to open them. To put the drawers back in, just slide them into the track and push all the way in.
I too have replaced all of the Grabber catches in my unit and am experimenting with heavy duty roller catches and heavy duty magnetic catches on certain drawers to see which works best. I did replace the grabber catches with roller catches on the door under the couch and the two I installed did not fail on our Alaska trip last year but was a lot of work getting them lined up to fit. I just installed the magnetic one and have not been out in the unit to see it that works. The grabber latches are junk and at $29 CAD it is expensive but Thor did send me 6 replacements free after I complained.

glad to red their quality in this area is just as strong as it was for the 2013 models!
pretty sure I've redone every single drawer slide and most of the catches at some point.
either replaced the slides, replaced the slide back bracket, adjusted and added screws
...that was the biggest thing...they seemed to think 1 screw would do when it really needs 2 or 3....
or I had to adjust the catch, add additional catches... I guess that about covers it.
basically there was nothing about the drawer slides and catches that were right....not a single one.
