Bonehead 101

Just returned from our maiden voyage in our Jay Feather 23RL. The trailer and its systems worked flawlessly. The operator, however, was a different matter. Got all unhitched, leveled and stabilized. Time now to put out the dinette slide. Oh no, halfway out the right side seems to bind up and the whole thing stops crooked. Bring it in and try it again. Same thing! By this point I'm trying to remember how to manually extend the slide. Mutter, mutter, *%!#! The owners manual is in the lower cabinet of the entertainment center just to the right of the slide. When I attempt to reach back in there to open the cabinet, I bring out the cabinet door that has been ripped from the cabinet frame. It was obviously open and the edge of the slide caught on it on the way out. Oh well, I broke it and now it's mine. The good news is that the slide mechanism does not appear to have been harmed and reattaching the door is a pretty straightforward repair.

Yup, did pretty much the same thing but it took me several trips before I got it to happen.

DW took to storing CDs on the shelf below the TV in our 23RLSW. In their cases. Then I discovered after one trip that several of them had jumped off the shelf and were lying on the floor, under the slideout. Disaster waiting to happen. No more loose stuff on those shelves!!

Just wait until Bonehead 102, when you make the same mistake twice (been there, as well)

We all have to learn that lesson. We always make sure all cabinet doors are latched closed before closing the slides.

We have a habit of closing them but not snapping them completely closed when camping, hence the check off item of double checking.

They should make those cabinet doors swing the other way...I know it's not as practical but at least the slide would push them closed.

Did the same exact thing on my unit. Second time home before second trip. Used glue and tooth picks jammed in the now larger screw holes. Re-drilled the holes and picked up some similar looking hinges at Lowe's.
