Bathroom cabinet doors

We have a 2004, 25 foot Safari. It is our first Airstream and the best liked of our six previous RV's.
I have a small problem and want to know if anyone can suggest a fix.
The doors to the cabinet under the sink fall out on a rough road unless they are duct taped in place. As you know, the doors slide back and forth and can be lifted out of their channels.
We like remote camping and drive quite a few miles on forest service roads. Unless we tape the doors in place, we find them on the floor at our destination, despite the smooth ride provided by the well designed AS suspension. Thanks in advance. Hank Ellwood

Cabinet doors

Cut a wooden dowel just a little longer than door length and use it as a wedge between the doors. It works great for us.

Place it between the end of the outer sliding door and the vertical part of the slot that the door rides in. It just jambs the door so it cannot move.

I finally KISSED it.😘

Put the fuzzy in the end...and the hooks on the end of the door. Lift it up in the channel as you close, pushing down to lock it in place.👍

I use wooden shims pushed between the doors. Works great and cheap.
