Question Drawer slides 1988 345

The slide out drawers are badly rusted, I would like to remove them to have them repaired. BUT I cannot seam to find how to get the slider bars to release. On home cupboards or filing cabinets there is a tiny lever that allows one to remove the drawer . Is there a similar one on these sliders? I need HELP please.

Pull the drawer out till it stops, then a little lever will be felt on each slide, move the lever in the opposite direction that is normal and the drawer can then be removed. Accuride slides, which can be found on the internet is the replacement slides for the drawers. Measure the length of the existing ones and you can order from the internet. You can also go to ebay and sometimes find the length your looking for.

Post Drawer Slides

I have been chasing down information on slides which are part # C1052-22 left and right. As it turns out you can not order them through Accuride, only through a distributor who might have them,
or with a order for 500. Keyline sales sold some to Airstream about a year ago and they have them in stock now. So call your
local dealer and give them this number.

It sounds as if there were a multitude of slide configurations used over the years.

The kitchen area drawers of my '87 345 have a single center slide, pull it out to the stop, and a small lever is found on the underside in the center of the "C" channel that carries the weight. Move the lever counterclockwise viewed from the top, and the drawer will continue to slide out.

When replacing drawer, the lever automatically resets when drawer is closed all of the way.

Airstream Part #

I just received my new slide rails from Airstream and of course they didn't use Accuride number so if you need drawer slide rails
for storage drawers it is 381037, and the dealer cost is $173.00.

The $ 173.00 is for a pair to do one drawer, and in my case it was the drawer that is 6ft long, so not much choice if you want to use the drawer, otherwise you make a bracket and bolt it in solid.

Drawer Slides

Wow!!!
If the drawer is 6 feet long, how deep is it. Or is it 6 feet deep. Please tell me it is unusual or I'll hate to tell you where you could have purchased some. I believe it's in my favorites on my laptop, since I'm away from home for four months. I know it's on my desktop at home though. Just checked my laptop and I do not have it there, so I couldn't help you till I would get home anyway.

Drawer Size

I am sending picture of the drawer and it is 6ft long by 2 feet deep. My preference would have been to buy some Accuride
301-22 slide rails, and make new brackets to weld to them.
The problem is finding them as accuride will only accept orders for 500.

Big Drawer Slides

Now I know why you paid so much. My drawers are only half that length. Each of my drawers are seperate, you have a combination of two drawers in one slide out. Looks nice though.
