I had my '02 Winnie Journey in for factory service and while there, tried to find the slide mechanism hardware for the tiny drawer on the drivers side nightstand. The slide device is only 8 & 3/4" long and Winnie no longer has any in stock with no plans to ever get that style again.

This picture is of the good side of the drawer, the other side the slide is crunched from getting trapped between the BR slide and the wall. That bent the metal enough that it's not reusable.

I'm looking for a replacement and haven't been successful finding anything. The original P/N per Winnie parts department is ATC RV 26222. (Perhaps I just haven't found the right search wording?)

I'm hoping someone on the forum has found a replacement device that I can order online. I'm in a small town and though there are 3 hardware stores, they carry a limited remodeling selection.

That looks like the style they sell at Home Depot or Lowes. In the isle with the cabinet and drawer hardware.

Finding an 8" drawer slide might be tough, 12" is usually the shortest. If you cut a 12" down to size the only thing you loose is the detente an the end that stops it from coming out. If you cut it from the front you would have to drill a hole and move the roller. I would cut the back of the track off and then install a small piece of wood at the top rear of drawer that stops the drawer from coming out.

You noted that Winnie parts did not have that part, was it really Winnie or was it Lichtsinn? If you really contacted Winnie, you may want to contact Lichtsinn as they have a lot of obsolete parts. It is where I go for parts for my Adventurer.

Make sure that the number you have was valid, I can't find anything for that number at all.

The parts gal at the Winnie parts counter in the service department seemed capable as she found all the other parts I was looking for except one obsolete part that Lichtsinn had.

Lichtsinn has all the drawings too but they didn't have anything to replace the drawer slide either and couldn't come up with a cross for it.

I have checked Home Depot & Lowe's and neither has anything this short.

Lee Valley, a great source for all sorts of hardware, does sell these 8" drawer slides that obviously aren't quite an exact identical replacement but might be able to work with minimal hardship.

Those are actually pretty good drawer slides. I replaced all of the white cheap ones with these in my class C. Full extension slides are nice to be able to access the full drawer

Agree,

Used that style for a built-in pantry I build in the Alpine. Very strong and smooth, and like posted allow the drawer to come all the way out for easy access.

While I most certainly agree that changing from a non-capture style drawer glide to a full extension capture type is the better move, it's not without some issues. I say that because, in most cases, because the type that Jim has in his coach are non-capture type, there's additional clearance built into those, side to side. But, full extension ones like Accuride and higher end Blum, need exact side to side clearance built into the drawer opening and drawer size in order for the slide to function correctly without binding.

If a drawer is built in such a manor that it WAS a non capture type but, it has sufficient clearance for full extension types, then that's great. Some full extension cannot be dissassembled for the drawer to come out. They must have the screws removed. But, most can come apart due to pushing a clip or button of some type that will allow for part of the track to come out, along with the drawer.

Jim,
The ones below are very similar to yours and can be used in place of the ones you have. You just need to find the 8" versions.
