Something I Don't Like

Well we've got our new baby home. I love what I see and have experienced so far with one notable exception. When the slides are in the hallway is narrow. I was certainly well aware of that going in, but what I hadn't noticed is how far the cabinet handles stick out. The handles are like a rather large drawer pull and they catch on your belt loops, legs, arms, and anything that they could catch on. We going to our local lumber yard to find some rounded handles that won't rip our clothes and bodies. You would think that someone would have thought about that before they used that type of handle.

I don't care much for our drawer pulls either. They are on my round too list to replace as well.

The pulls look fine, they are just a real pain (literally) to walk around. When you've got a really tight hallway it makes it tough to keep from getting hurt or tearing something...like your leg.

Congratulations on the new RV.

Congrats on the new coach. Drawer handles can be a real pain at times. Inside our motorhome it's not bad but inside our home is another story. Certain pairs of shorts with the pleated area by the pockets I wear always catch on the lower cabinet doors. They have a tendency to stop you right in your tracks.
Hopefully the handles will be the only issue you'll ever have. Now get out there and start enjoying it. It's been a long wait. Time to have some fun!!!!

Our 2011 model has drawer pulls which look like boat cleats! We are experiencing the same issue with clothes being caught and bruises being formed... My wife has already begun shopping for new pulls and the coach isn't a month old...

Just replaced about 70 of them, got the coach june 4. Mostly because my wife was clipping her shins on the lower ones. Took the time to put the rubber bumpers underneath everything on the countertop that vibrates and no more noise. Cheap fixes that went a long way. I've had a bunch of fabrication issues

I didn't realize there are so many of them. I plan on doing the same thing.

I didn't either, I had to make 2 trips to Leows, so make sure you know how many total, because it's unlikely they will be able to match them all without reorders

We replaced everything from the monitoring panel forward and it took roughly 32 (model 390BH). At this point in time we don't have plans to switch out the bathroom or back bedroom. Although that is subject to change...
