Under couch drawer slide is damaged

My 2005 Jayco 24SS has a "jacknife" couch with two drawers under it. The slides on one drawer are damaged: the ball cages are bent and all the bearings have fallen out. I retrieved 12 of the 44 needed. Does anyone know where I can get replacement slides? New cages and balls would be adequate, too; even new bearings would likely let me repair the original slides.

Thanks, David; unfortunately, none in the link match what I have. I did find I could buy 100 balls on Amazon (two day delivery, $8 total!), so that will give me enought to repair my slides; mainly, it's the ball cages that are damaged, but I think I can straighten them, replace the balls, and be done with it in 30 minutes. The other drawer was in better shape, and was easy to fix. The drawers are huge, and my wife is ecstatic to have so much inside storage space, especially since the wardrobe is smaller than our old motorhome, because the slide takes away about 18" of width.

I did contact Accuride, the manufacturer of the couch drawer slides, but it's a custom order, and they didn't recognize it.

I just replaced my drawer slides. Lowe's has the best selection and Home Depot second in line. Take an old slide to store and use as a matching unit. The weight capacity should be stamped on your existing slide. Purchase the highest rated weight capacity slides. They are sold in sets and I believe mine cost in the area of $13.00. Easy to replace, but may have to drill a new mounting hole in replacement units to match your existing rail mounting holes. Make certain the new units extend to the correct length.

I looked at Home Depot and Lowes, but neither had the style the couch drawers use. Those are actually mounted on the floor of the slideout, and the bottom of the drawer:

I got some 3/16" steel balls from Amazon for $8, and I think I can repair the cages. Did that on the other drawer, but couldn't find all the balls for the second drawer.

Those are probably Accuride 2590's. Knape & Vogt, as well as others, also makes what is referred to as a Pantry Slide. Unfortunately, they aren't cheap. You will pay around $60/pair for that slide. They are rated around 155lbs/pr, but are the only style that mounts like that.

Here's a link about the one's mentioned.
You might call them or look around website for correct slides.

Thanks for the lead. They look like good slides; however; those are similar, but not the same, as they have an extra slide that gives them full extension. The slides on my couch drawers are relatively lightweight by comparison, with much smaller ball cages. I was able to easily repair them today with the balls I got from Amazon, and they work fairly smoothly. It appears the drawer with the biggest problem (all balls gone, ball cages not even in the slides) had slides with the bottom rails installed backwards! The stops don't function that way, and the first time it's pulled it too far, the balls and cages will fall out, leaving the drawer to slide metal-to-metal instead of on ball bearings. The other drawer was installed properly, still worked fairly well, though it was missing 3 or 4 balls out of 44.
