On my last trip with my 25 RB, we arrived at the campground to find stuff all over the trailer floor. One of the plastic tracks that hold the pantry shelves had failed and the top shelf fell, causing a domino effect on the next 2 shelves whick also broke on the plastic tracks. All the goods from all 3 shelves were either on the bottom or out the door on the trailer floor. I replaced all 4 tracks with adjustable metal tracks. As I was doing this I also found the floor of the pantry to be very loose. The cleats that hold the 1/8 inch bottom plywood were loose from the wall. Not sure if this was poorly built and never attached well or caused by the crash. Managed to find some fancy metal braces and got them screwed under the pantry floor to shore it up. I don't think I had that much weight on the top shelf.Please take a minute to inspect those liitle braces on the plastic tracks and check your pantry floor to avoid this mess.

It seems pretty common in RVs and houses to use countersunk screws to install the plastic brackets and as a result, crack the plastic and causing it to fail prematurely. New brackets and flat head screws should address this.
