If you own an RV, then you know that one of the challenges you face while driving is keeping all of your drawers closed. Even if you’re careful, it’s easy for a drawer to come open and spill its contents all over the place. Fortunately, there are a few different ways that you can keep your drawers closed while driving.
Place a rubber band around the handles of your RV drawers
One of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your RV drawers closed while driving is to place a rubber band around the handles. This will prevent the drawers from being able to open, even if they are bumped or jostled. You can find rubber bands at most grocery stores or online.
Use bungee cords
Another option for keeping your RV drawers closed while driving is to use bungee cords. Bungee cords are stretchy cords that have hooks on each end. You can hook the bungee cord onto the handles of your drawer and then stretch it across to another surface, such as a cabinet door or the side of your RV. This will keep the drawer securely shut.
Use Velcro to attach a piece of fabric to the inside of your cabinet doors
If you don’t want to use a rubber band or bungee cord, you can also use Velcro to attach a piece of fabric to the inside of your cabinet doors. This will create a barrier that will prevent the drawers from opening. You can find Velcro at most hardware stores.
Install drawer catches that will keep them closed while you’re driving
Another option is to install drawer catches that will keep the drawers shut while you’re driving. These catches are usually installed on the side of the drawer and they have a lip that fits over the edge of the cabinet door. This will keep the drawers from being able to open, even if they are bumped.
Add magnets to the back of your cabinet doors
If you want a more permanent solution, you can add magnets to the back of your cabinet doors. This will create a magnetic seal that will keep the drawers shut. You can find magnets at most hardware stores or online.
To keep RV drawers closed while driving, you can use drawer latches or cabinet door locks. These can be attached to the sides of the drawers and will keep them securely closed during travel. Other methods include using bungee cords or tie-downs to keep the drawers in place, or adding magnets to the drawers to help keep them closed.
