          The weather has been super nice around here, so I took my Jayco out over the weekend. No issues, except the drawers next to the stove keep opening during travel. And it’s just two of them, all the rest stay shut. Any suggestions?

              Try these magnetic door catches: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W8D69WM

                  Is there a lot of weight in those drawers? You might want to try spreading out its contents to some other drawers. Otherwise, magnetic catches like the above work well, and childproof latches are effective but can be annoying.

                      I believe there are magnetic catches currently on there, but maybe they’ve worn out? I’ll have to check. One of them does have pots and pans so I’ll try lightening the load in that drawer first. Thanks

                          If the drawers are stacked, you can slide a yard stick or somethign similar down the handles. The doors that stay shut will help keep the others shut.
