Tip from Rick Black-FR warranty service

We were in Elkhart, IN in September to have several items and issues repaired/resolved by the factory. Great work and very satisfied.

Rick Black, warrant service shop manager, mentioned to us that we might want to remove the pantry door door handle and replace with something that didn't "stick out" as much as the handle.

They have had issues/complaints from owners where the right hand refrigerator door had swung open, for whatever reason, and "dented" the door. Not covered under warranty and you can't order just one replacment door; have to get all four doors. Might as well get a new fridge!

We glued a wooden emblem over the door handle holes and now open the door by pulling on the bottom of the door.

You might want to check and see if yours is the same way. We have a 2010 GT 378TS.

Same on 2011 model.....not exterior handle on the pantry. Guess Forest River discovered the potential problem and fixed it.
