WACHUKO - Exactly. I know I will remove mine but will wait until end of our travel season. Having that out of the way reclaims that entire height from the lids of my containers to the bottom of shelf with no obstruction from R/S to C/S, entire width of rear shelf. And what really irks me is whenever I stick my head under my shelf to retrieve stuff way back, I always hit my head on the corners of that rail/slide. Never drew blood, just irritating, though.To retain the weight capacity of my shelf, I will add the legs to the R/S & C/S ends and imbed angle irons (◊2) the entire length of bottom of shelf. That will ensure the center does not sag.

Thanks for all the replies. The dealer who sold us the AI is working on finding the parts (just the handle and slides) but he his progress has been slow and he is waiting for calls to be returned. We may decide in the future to do without the pullout rail and supports, and I appreciate everyone's suggestions for alternative ways to use this space.

PANDOS - if you decide you really need this, another alternative is buying a set of heavy duty full extension slides, which is all it is and just use wood as the bridging pull (ala cabinet drawer front) and bolt it to the frame/rail instead of riveting. I bet you would end up much cheaper and not compromise it's capacity. I have a feeling dealer is not prioritizing this maybe because its not a profit for them especially if they are not installing it. Also, have you tried contact AS Cust. Serv. directly?

Thatís the only use. I donít have one either, but since we use the extension, I fabricated a stand to support them.
