We had read on someone's blog that this was a bad engineering idea in their trailer. On one of the threads in this forum, someone mentioned slides had greatly improved over the years. Are we okay with getting a slide with the refrig or should we select another model?
Thanks for helping these newbies!
I will be not be the first person to tell you that rv company's make HUGE mistakes as to when it comes to "engineering" i have had some and so have others, but as for a fridge in a slide it has become very common, (mine has a whole wall slide with kitchen and entertainment) to issue with slides most times is not the factory BUT the owner not maintaining it properly!
Now i am not saying "you " will not have some kind of issue, Most rv's will of some kind at some point and it is up to you to know and pay attention to things not looking, smelling, working properly or not, and if you can not fix it, have it fixed!
Hope this helps and Happy camping
