First Ding and First Lesson

While cleaning up the travel trailer after our first trip a little over a week ago the wife discovered our first ding, about a 6 inch split near the bottom of a bedroom wall. Seems in the process of towing one of the sliding doors jumped the lower guide and slammed into the wall enough to crack it.

Pulled the wall piece back into place, now I am hoping the dealer will have some seam tape that matches. Adjusted the door guide and more importantly learned that the little straps that secure the doors aren't just for looks but probably should be used prior to towing the trailer. DUH!

With only one plastic guide on one edge of the door at the bottom; ours hops the rail in normal use. It is on our checklist.
