Typically the drawer slides are installed about 3/16 inch to far in

Bit difficult to relocate

Look them over closely and note where the drawer stops in relation to the catches

Sometimes the latches do break and have to be replaced--I've replaced a few on ours.

The spares Judge mentioned should work. These things do break. To remove your sliding drawer, when fully extended, you will find two plastic levers inline with the drawer on the inner slide. One goes up when pushed, and the other one down. Then you can slide the drawer out. If the female portion, usually on the frame of the coach, which has a lever, is visible and closed, then odds are its broken. I have tried a several times to pry open and it rarely works. It is a pretty easy swap, BUT, these do come in different sizes and if you try to ah.. "interbreed" them.... they usually will not "mate" up. Good news is the screw holes usually do. Just swap out male and female portion from same order of spares.

Overall not a tough job at all.

Good luck

I had similar problem. found that the "female" side of the catch had closed preventing the male from locking in. I used a screwdriver to open the female side catch and then reinstalled on drawer and everything worked great.

they actually held better than the originals. The difficult part was where to mount them.
