I tried your trick but no luck. This prompted a more thorough investigation. I found that there is a tab on the stationary part of the slide that got bent in. Prying it out did the trick.

If the folks at Firefly said it needs a 30 amp connection to charge a battery there is probably some reason for that. The Firefly system is a remote control and monitoring system. It can turn on and off several devices. The Firefly system would use very little power. It's the devices that it contro...

Interesting that Firefly says that you need a 30 amp connection for the outback inverter to charge the batteries. Always seem to have a problem getting my batteries fully charged when about to leave on a trip and now I know why. Guess I will have to install a 30 amp plug on the house or use an acce...

AGM batteries have a very low self-discharge rate. I suggest that you make sure your batteries are fully charged then disconnect the negative battery cable. This will make absolutely sure that nothing will be powered. Even after a year your batteries would be at least 75% charged. Of course if you n...

My pantry got a thorough test today. Eight miles of god awful gravel/dirt one lane washboard and rutted road. The magnet came through with flying colors.

If your pantry is the same as mine, there are three slides, two on the side and one on the bottom. If you extend the pantry all the way out, you will see a plastic tab on the side of the lower rail and on the bottom rail. Moving the tab on both the side and bottom rails will allow you to pull the pa...

I installed one the magnetic catches this morning. Getting the magnet aligned is critical. I doubt that the pull is 60 pounds but hopefully it will be enough. I can always add another if not.

I think that 8 pounds of pull may not be enough. Your post reminded me that I have some magnetic catches recommended by member tanksalot. I haven't used any yet. They supposedly have a 60 pound pull. If they have that much pull, it might be a bit excessive. I'll keep you posted. Thanks. Link: Magnet...

Thanks Kevin. That's a simple solution, but my pantry differs from yours. Mine does not have a door. It might still work though.

The top slide on my pantry has a latching mechanism that no longer latches. I have sprayed some lube on the slide with no change. I could easily install an external latch, but would rather not. I am now using a bungee cord and occasionally forget to fasten that. The same would be true with an extern...

Thanks for the info. I still haven't done mine. I now have 108k on my coach and it's on my long list of things to do. I'm back in Florida again and will tackle it when I return home in the spring.

I used a magnetic door stop. They are available at home stores. Here's one from Home Depot: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Onward-3-in-Brushed-Nickel-Magnetic-Door-Stop-67NBR/202206068 https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/02ac8408-bd39-4a68-aef8-01e29262cbc0/svn/onward-door-stops-67nbr-64_...
