    Too much weight for this bottom shelf

    Went out dry camping this past weekend and needed some convenient place to put a case of water. Well this bottom shelf is not built to have very much weight on it. Not only is the shelf material very thin the staples on the back of the shelf came up into the back brace, and no blocks on the floor to help support any weight. This in my 2016 369RL. See picture.

    Ugh... Yeah I have had the shelving on a previous unit drop thru the bottom. Water is pretty heavy, plus going down the road the trailer is bouncing, so those shelves take a beating!
    We haul bottled water for drinking, but it stays on the floor, or in the basement area.

    Is that the cabinet to the left, closest to the fridge? Or the right, by the steps leading upstairs?

    We carry case or two of bottled water on floor behind recliners. Out of sight and puts some weight on the curb side away from the heavier side with kitchen slide.

    If nothing else I just wanted to warn other owners that in the case of this shelf do not overload this shelf.

    It seems most of the drawers in our 337 are built this way. I'm about halfway thru a project to replace the thin bottoms with plywood, which I anchor with wood screws to the sides and rear of the drawers.
