Cupboard doors separating

Looked at my trailer today for my monthly check, checking for mice, leaks etc. notice the cupboard door under sink was looking funny, tried to close it but it was totally miss aligned. Then looked at other cupboards and noticed they are all separating... Never had this issue during storage for 2 other winters. No major changes in weather, trailer is stored level/flat. Tires are still full of air. Don't know why this happened? Going in on Saturday for warranty.
Any one have any ideas how this could have happened??

There are two possible causes. First, the factory may not have glued the joint properly, so the joint came apart. This is easily corrected by working some wood worker glue into the joint and clamping the door to pull everything together while the glues sets up.

Second cause is a bit harder to handle. Your door has a solid wood panel (not plywood) Wood expands across the grain as it increases in moisture. When you make doors like this there needs to be some clearance between the edge of the panel and the bottom of the groove holding the panel in the frame. If this clearance isn't sufficient, when the panel expands due to moisture in the air, it will expand and put tremendous pressure on the door frame resulting in the type of failure you have. The only way to permanently fix this is to take the door apart and create more clearance. A not so permanent fix is to control the moisture levels in tour RV at a low level.

A cabinet maker that make their own doors can probably fix this for you.

X2 with what us71na said. I'm leaning towards not enough clearance between the panel and the frame.


Were the doors ok when you checked the month before?


Do you keep windows cracked open or ceiling vents partially open?


Any excessive moisture with the weather the month before? Hopefully no leaks causing this to happen.


High humidity and moisture are not friends to RV's. Wireman

i leave my roof bent open(Max air cover) half way for fresh air, I also control the moisture with Dri-zorb. Doors where ok last month when I checked, and weather has warmed up since then.

Skaling, possibly your Dri-zorb isn't controlling the moisture level in your TT. Especially if you have had a lot of rain, etc. within the last month.


Is your TT in storage? If not, you could, and the weather is warm enough, run your roof A/C to remove some of the moisture.

Having the dealer look at it is your best option right now.

That condition is caused from excessive humidity. If it were on just one door, I would conclude that the door was made incorrectly but if it is happening to most, or all of the doors tells you it's a humidity situation. Do you have your tt covered this year?

My guess is that it's not breathable enough. Not trying to be facetious (word for the day), just sayin'.

My doors have been separating like that for the last two winters.
My dealer said Jayco does not use glue.
I am now out of warranty, but my dealers is going to glue them for me at no charge.
