Used them in my 29 bhs. Worked great.

This is common and as you can see there are various ways to deal with it. You should be able to jury-rig something easier than unloading the drawer. Our 2 drawers under the sink would often come open so we slide one handle of our kitchen tongs through the 2 handles to "connect" them and then they usually stay in.

We have another friend who has purchased those long cover twist-tie type things and thread those through their drawer handle. Amazon.com: The Most Amazing Gear Ties (4-Pack of 12 Inch Ties).

Good luck.

I've had this problem on my two previous MHs. Solved it by adding a second drawer latch just like the one already installed.

On my previous Chateau and now on my Seneca I have experienced the "opening drawer" issue. On both units I installed the child resistant latches that only allow the drawer to open about an inch and then you have to depress the latch to get drawer to open all the way. Easy to install and out of sight. I put one on each side of the drawers. While I find my drawers still move some while travelling, they only open that one inch and then stop. They don't slide out enough to get sufficient momentum to cause damage when they hit their end 'stop". That did happen in my Chateau and I was forced to rebuild the cheaply constructed drawer, and then I installed the latches. Never had any more trouble for 8 years. Put them on my Seneca after the under-stove drawers opened (even though empty!) on the way home after initial delivery!

Home Depot has a great selection of these products, that is where I sourced mine.

You guys have fantastic ideas! Thank you! We had to take it in for a couple of leaks in the bathroom. I asked them to check the drawer and our side door as it was open and stairs out we we drove into rest area..that shouldnt happen at all!

Same problem on several of my drawers. I found that it was an adjustment issue for mine. The receiver was too far back, therefore never fully capturing the stud. You can try to move yours forward. May or may not be the cause for yours..

Installed a second latch in the drawer under the stove. We did not have it overloaded, it just needed more help staying shut. Works like a charm.
