The pantry drawers seem to be designed differently. There is nothing to attach the receiver side of the latch to. The latch in these drawers is integrated into the drawer slides, and you would have to replace the slides to get a stronger latch.

I have been using a long dowel cut so that it is a friction fit between the bottom of the countertop and the floor, snugged in next to the pull handles of the drawers. It holds the drawers closed nicely, but of course you have to remember to replace the dowel before you hit the road. The advantage is that the drawers still open and close easily without any extra effort.

Yes. I used a brown tension rod from Walmart before I installed the catches. (From under countertop to floor in the corner by shower -that works too).

I am just addressing the three drawers under sink. My other drawers stay closed.

The catches work. One end goes on side trim and the other piece attaches to drawer face.

Here are pics of catches on TV. I turned the screws on the catches down as far as possible to make the catch tight as possible.

Default Axion not charging on shore power

Ecotrek charges fine with solar and GU, not with shore power. Inverter display panel shows 0 volts input. Help! Steve

On our Ecotrek, for the shoreside charger to operate, the inverter has to be turned on.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, it was, but display on inverter shows 0 VAC coming in. Tried different power cords & different 30 amp sources. Dealer ordering new (3 to 5 weeks probably) inverter/charger. I guess I posted just to see if I was the only unlucky guy to have this happen. Hoping someone may know of some special reset procedure because I know dealer techs don't know everything. Thanks again, Steve.

When you plug in shore power, are you physically measuring 120VAC on the input leads to the inverter? If not, it isn't a converter problem. Do any of your 120VAC receptacles work? If not, it looks like the converter transfer switch isn't working.

These units are programmed for each installation so the the replacement should be keyed to the coach VIN. But it shouldn't take 3 - 5 weeks for the factory to ship a replacement. What is the make and model of the inverter?
