Learning things the hard way

Arrived at the camp ground this weekend and started setting up. The wife called out that she needed my help inside. Come to find out a quart plastic bottle of soda in the lower cabinet had pushed the door open and when the wife opened the slide it caught the door handle.

The slide trim pulled loose and the cabinet door cracked along the side with the handle. . It took some doing but I was able to get the plastic bottle back up close the door and open the slide. I fixed the slide trim, but the door will require some wood work.

Lesson learned check the clearence for slide outside and make sure cabinet doors are closed inside.

Fishing was good and beer was cold, good weekend

Our bunkhouse has slides on both sides and a cabinet that is chock full of games and kids stuff. We take the Velcro OneWrap stuff and wrap it around the handles to ensure that it stays closed.

We got several slide type baby locks to keep our doors from coming open............. we all have over the years learned things the hard way. Our old trailer slide caught a cabinet door lucky for us it only broke the hinges..........
