We winterized also and had no problems with the drawer. But I seem to recall this drawer had fallen during our first shake down trip and longer screws were needed to properly re-install.
Overall, winterizing was not so bad to accomplish but the post "pink stuff" depressive disorder that follows was not included in the instructions. Ha-been researching all week on snowbird escape plans.

That drawer, along with all the other drawers in the FC 20' only come with two little screws holding the tracts onto the drawer. If you look carefully you can see there are two more places to put screws in. I got some very small (about 3/8 or 1/4 x #6 as I recall) screws at an Ace hardware store and drilled little tiny pilot holes, put the screws in, and then a dab of white glue on top of them. That has solved my problem. Do it on every drawer in the rig before you have any more issues.

Glad everyone likes their FC 20, I sure like mine.

Agree! The post "pink stuff" blues are kicking in now that we have winterized. We are already planning for spring and wondering if Mother Nature will allow us to get the trailer out of storage early.
We will just have to keep looking at our photos of our couple of shakedown trips...which were soooo much fun! I'm hoping the picture of our Maine trip attaches. Stayed at Wild Duck CG, small but nice.

Hi there,
I am not aware there is a specific FC 20' group on the forum....just several of us seemed to have purchased our AS this past year and had similar "newbie" excitement, questions, fears and most importantly fun! The are also many seasoned experienced FC 20' owners whom are always ready with communicating technical help and tips they have learned.
I have felt as a FC 20' owner we fall into many categories- we are a Bambi, a Flying Cloud and really in a "class" all our own. We still on the learning curve and not yet ready to join formal WBCCI group just yet.

Currently, we are seriously contemplating a winter snowbird escape to the southwest.
