Installing slideout tray for basement freezer
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:50:41 AM »
Planning on mounting a 12V portable freezer in the basement. While I have one compartment that has a slideout tray, the compartment where the freezer is going will need a tray added.

Looking for recommendations re adding slideout trays, things to watch for, specific brands, and other thoughts. The freezer weighs about 100 lbs so tray will have to support about 200 total I would guess.

Thx

Joey Bed is good, but only one of several good brands. This is a mature product area with several good products. Joey, MORryde, Kwikee, Slidemaster, etc.

Some are higher mounted than others, and some have lower/higher weight ratings. Some are two way slides - they cross the entire RV and can be slid out either side. It's mostly a matter of figuring what fits/works best in your rv.

I looks like MORryde has the specific product I'm looking for. They have a freezer sliding tray that, aside from being exactly the right size, is also a 200% extension (which I hadn't thought about). Virtually all the 'normal' ones seems to slide 100% or slightly less. The freezer tray slides out twice as far as the freezer is deep, getting the freezer way out so the lid can be completely and easily opened.  Kinda spendy though  :-\

I put the MorRyde in my Tiffin Scott. I don't use it for a freezer, I use it for a storage area for our work out weights. I just checked today and I load it with 196# of misc weight equipment. And it does extend out 200% as advertised, fully loaded. 

It is pricey but I wanted something dependable, and so far I haven't been disappointed.

Thanks Marty. Just ordered it.


I assume itís thru-bolted to the bin floor; lotta weight/leverage hanging out there.

Yeah, I believe it was 4 bolts on a side. I used stainless to avoid the rust out issue. A word of caution about the install. Try extending the shelf all the way out to make sure it clears both the open door and the lip on the bay. I needed a shim at the front of the tray to clear the lip on the storage bay.
