Just a comment on the door clip locks. I haven't had a problem with the pantry door (in spite of having a Keurig coffee maker and HP printer in there), but the other drawers on the island (same hardware) are a problem. I find that the catch on the island holding in the drawers in doesn't spring open when the drawers are initially opened. The temporary fix is to check and use a screwdriver blade to pry out the catch (then close teh drawer/door as the last check before buttoning up the RW for travel from a site.

I'm going to check the alignment of the catches (drawer to island) before our next excursion. It may also be the movement of the drawers (or door in your case) that's causing the mis-alignment.

Some people mentioned a lock at the back of the drawer. It must be something new they have added to the units since my purchase in 2012. So glad most of my drawers stay closed, although at least they don't break that huge pantry door like the pull out shelves have done. (I must admit there is a lot of weight in those drawers.)

on our pantry door I use a long 1" x 2" piece of wood that I slide between the inside frame and it velcro to the drawer front. This keeps the drawers from moving in transit. they don't slam into the pantry door this way.

A lot of work for something that should have been simple. I even went to other RV dealers in the area with absolutely no positive results.
I've had two of those latches break. Found replacements at Wichita Falls RV Center in Jolly Texas (just happened to be staying at a State Park nearby). The latches are hard to find...Lowe's and Home Depot do not stock them.

I have not experienced this problem but if it ever occurs I will implement your solution. It's cheap and it works!!! Thanks for the info.

If you look at Atom Ants registery you will see a picture of the sliding latches for the pantry drawers. I installed the same ones and they work great

I have those too and they work great. I also use a bungee hooked on the pantry door handle and the other end on the opening where the oven vent filter is to hold the door shut. I try to somehow secure all drawers and doors, but haven't managed to find a way to do that yet. Wish there was a locking mechanism for them of some kind. I am sure there is, I just haven't found it yet. Easier than putting velcro straps and bungees on everything, but totally necessary.

I personally think people underestimate how much movement and force there is inside the coach when you are underway. Unfortunately, something usually gets damaged before they do.

Any ideas of door/drawer locks that are not bungees or velcro straps?

We installed magnetic latches from Home Depot on drawers and they hold tight. Be sure to get the heavy duty latches.

I bought a 1x3 piece of poplar which is long enough to slip into the pantry opening behind the frame and use velcro to fasten in place. I bought a set of carpeted chair foot pads and put one for each drawer at the proper place on the back of the poplar. Cheap, and easy. My new pantry door won't pop open and hang on the top hinge only.

I bought some Blum brand 170 degree hinges for our washer dryer Bi-fold door from Overstock.com, much better quality hinge than OEM hinge supplied.

Or do a search on Woodcraft web site and click on find a store; there are quite a few of them and you may be fairly close to one of them.

I was able to find a replacement at Lowes for the Pantry door. It was not a Blum but worked in the same space.

I would like to install those 170 degree hinges on the doors under the sink and maybe next to the oven. I keep fearing i'm going to turn into those doors and break them off if they are open.
