Replacing drawer slides

The large dresser drawer in our 38GK needs to be replaced. Apparently it calls for a 10 1/2 inch slide. We have not been able to find that size, the shortest one we found was 12 ininch at a local RV dealer. We looked online at RV Design.com and the smallest they had was 12 inch as well. We haven’t checked with Crossroads yet. Thought we would ask if anyone out there has replaced the drawer slides.

Below is a quick link to confirm drawer slide length. To my knowledge, slides come in increments of 2”. There is no difference in RV drawer slides and any other, except the level of quality chosen. I suspect you have what is defined as a 10” slide and amazon is loaded with them. Good luck!

The KV slides are pretty good quality for the price. I used them in the pantry to replace the factory ones. Had to drill new holes for the back - no big deal.

This issue became a big deal as original slides were "75pd" slide maybe 1 3/8" tall new ones r taller 100pd slide 1 1/2" taller so all the screws dont line up
Use a sharpie draw lines for reference check everything for level and camper level too drill 1 shallow hole in back mount slightly loose

Mount drawer slides predrill shallow undersized holes bought some flathead # 6 x 1/2" screws for drawer the back mounting bracket will extend or retract note slide rail backspace from cabinet face 3/16ths ?

Way to much thought into simple fix but drawer slides from depot were to long 12" small as they stock,10" slides Amazon or maybe rockler

Thanks to you all who responded. What we have learned is this.....we went to Amazon in order to get 10 inch slides (45mm wide, 100 lb, full extension, side mount installed with a rear mount bracket). The slide mfg was Decorite, the bracket was Gobrico (could not find Decorite brackets on Amazon) which was listed as 45mm, guess what, it was not 45 mm, it was 1.875 inches (too wide). When we contacted Gobrico they told us their 45mm brackets fit their slides but they don’t make 10 inch slides. They should not be listed as 45mm. What a fiasco!!
We now have the KV brackets on order and since they were listed as 1.8 in we’re hoping they will fit the brackets.
