Cabinet issues

We have a 2017 Outback 5th wheel 29frs and are having issues with 5-6 cabinet doors splitting and cracking. Obviously we are out of warranty but had one replaced while under warranty. Anyone else out there had issues like this w the doors? We are now fighting w dealer and keystone to get fixed

Photos?
Had some issues with doors coming open during travel, which contributes to a bunch of bad things on the cabinet doors...

I have a 2015 2015 277 RL (barely used) and about 4 cabinet doors are completely split. They can't even close. I was here seeing if anyone else has had the same problems. I'll post pictures of mine tomorrow. What has keystones defense been when you talked to them.

If the rig is out of warranty, it's likely you will have no luck getting this issue resolved through your dealer or Keystone. To save the stress dealing with this, find a local cabinet shop and run the rig to them so they can measure, and have new doors made, maybe all of them if you want them to match, and have them install the doors. I think you will be much happier in the long run, and you can even customize the doors with glass or anything else you can think of.

Have you given any thought to repairing them?

Get two or three bar/pipe clamps - I like Stanley or Bessy - and some TiteBond II wood glue. After you have the piece clamped up, wipe off the excess glue. After the glue cures (overnight) carefully scrape off any excess glue then sand to 150 grit (or better) then refinish with a matching stain. Will cost you a little time and you'll have the satisfaction of having done it yourself.

Or, buy new doors - it's your money

I totally agree! All your out is a little time & a bottle of glue.

I have to chime in here with the others. On a 2015 model Keystone isn't going to have anything to say....it's yours.

I'm also thinking that the bar clamps and Tite Bond might do the trick. I'd go at least 220 grit. Depending on the damage you may want to strip them and re-stain, or, I've had great luck mixing stains to match projects I work on; but then again I've got about 40+ cans of various stains to mix and match until I match it; if one straight out of a can won't work. Get some veneer of the same kind of wood to test it on.

On the other hand, a cabinetmaker can probably fix you up as well; just reach in the wallet and open wide.....
