Nightstands

Anyone else hurt themselves on the very pointy corners of the bedside nightstands (they're attached to the slide trim for the master bed. Any suggestions? I was thinking of swim noodles, but that's kinda unattractive.

I woke myself up the other night when rolling over in bed. Crunch, headache, what's this wet sticky stuff on my forehead? Get up wash it, probably needed a suture or 2, but it was 0430, so it got washed and superglued instead.

Mine are well back on the 390RB I don't think I would hit it in my sleep.
When the grand babies started walking we had to child proof the house. The make stick on rubber corner covers that work well. The problem you will have is the heat when your not using the MH will melt the glue. That's about the only thing I can think of. Maybe put a couple of stainless screws to help hold them on. I imagine you only want to do that once. Ouch!

I was thinking the same thing as Phil, need to them them for the bunk bed. The "closet" hangs with the corner sticking out. Last trip, my 15 year old almost knocked himself out when he whacked his head on it. Very bad design.

Not sure of the layout of what your are speaking of but if it is the corners of the cabinets above the night stands I found brass corner guards that were a little rounded and it helped in my other camper. Good luck!

ToyRUs, rubber pieces made to protect kids from sharp corners, there is an entire product line for these types of kid safety items, some even come in brown color

Here is the offending corner. The smaller rubberized kiddie corner protectors may do the trick. I'll have to look at those!

those small rubberized kiddie corner things work great. we put them on our copper canyon bedroom cabinets 3 yrs ago, and they are still on there to this day. shoot, even the dealer left them on when we traded it in. without them, thats one hell of a wake up call any time during the night

Ok I"m a little slow. When I first read your post I took a look and ours night stands are nice and rounded and thought cool no issue. I just looked at your picture and we do have the same issue. We are looking now to see if we have left over bumpers from the grandkids. Thanks for the heads up.
