Question Tweaked storage doors on 2016 2861DS.

I was wondering if anyone here who owns the 2861DS has outside doors that don't align properly. Two of the doors on the motorhome we're purchasing are tweaked and don't close properly. They are the doors to the outside kitchen/wet bar and the storage door below it.

What is the fix for that?

Thanks for your help.

I forgot to add that our RV is a used 2016. I was just wondering if anyone here has had that problem of storage doors not aligning with their 2016 or older Forester 2861DS. Thanks.

We have a 2016 2861DS (purchased new 11-13-15) and so far no issues with any of the storage doors or anything else for that matter.

I'm beginning to think that possibly the tweaked storage doors may be from misuse of the auto levelers. I hope not!! Hopefully its something as simple as hinge adjustment.

The doors are adjustable. When we bought ours one of the doors did not align correctly. Since you just bought it I would suggest taking it back to the dealer you bought it from and have them adjust it. Unless you bought from Camping World in which they will most likely put you on a 3 month waiting list.

Thanks, that's good to know.

I just bought a 17 - 3011ds and the passenger rear outside storage door does not align in the top corner. They tried to bend it into place but that obviously didn't work. It looks to me like the opening is off a little. I have something similar going on with the bathroom door. After owning a Winnebago I am so far not real impressed with the fit and finish of this coach. The dealer could not find any adjustments on the door. Nor can I. Did you confirm they can be adjusted? Did you get yours fixed yet? Thanks. Jp

Yes, they must have adjusted the outside doors at the dealer because they're fine now.
