BTW I have not installed that little marine slide bolt to retain the large drawer in its closed position, and the recent trip involved some side-to-side curves which would have challenged the OEM drawer slide detente/keep-closed function. Did you put your keep-closed system in place when you went to Orca Island?
Funny you should ask as I've been thinking about it lately and maybe dropping by a hardware supplier to look for a cabinet lock that has a long throw to accommodate the drawer fascia.
I did use the angled bar on the trip and had no problems. I spaced it on the Orcas to Anacortes leg but all was fine. We bought a new (lighter weight) P&P set that really fits the drawer and keeps things from sliding around, whis I think was part of the problem.
Also I suspect that this all started when I caught the corner of a curb as we have a very tight turnaround at the end of our street and it goosed that side of the trailer. We also had heavier P & P's then that moved around a bit.
Having said that I still want to figure out a better way to secure the drawer. Your latch, even thought it slides into the thin drawer fascia, I suspect will be a good solution. I'll loop back after I explore the lock set. The angled adjustable shower rod, while functional is a bit of a Rube Goldberg visual.
