Drawer Glides

I've decided to replace the drawer glides on the drawers in the bedroom, below the window, of our 2015 38GK.

Has anyone already done this? Seems pretty straight forward. But my DIY projects always turn out to be more "challenging" than I anticipate.

We've removed some of the heavier clothes from the drawers, but they still de-rail pretty frequently. They're just too flimsy to hold anything.

Every time my wife yelled the drawers don't close she had loaded so many clothes in the drawer the bottom pushed out. I bought a clamp gorilla glue and a brad gun and fix them as she breaks them. The slides get replaced same as need.

I recently had several slides that had this problem. Found that the left side channel was too loose where the slide goes back and forth inside the rail. Once the door was out it would allow the roller slide just fall out of thee channel. I removed the slide and took a pair of channel pliers and squeezed the outer rail channel all the way front to back carefully then checked putting the bearing slide back in to make sure it was not to tight then held face down and shook to make sure the bearing slide would not fall out. Reinstalled drawer and Yee haw AOK Yowsa. put a thin coat of Vaseline on ball bearings and all work great.
