shower door

Just got my updated shower door for my 2014 Fr3 same as the 2015 model.. Very nice job, my wife is super happy. Forest River came thru for us.
With my idea, they (the dealer) solved the pocket door problem of it tearing up the far wall when it closes with its latch. that works good now and closes all the way.

will try to do pictures later -pretty simple just use an oblong metal"cup" (bathtub) shaped handle that fits in pocket door or cabinet-It is about 2" wide and about 3-4' long- use a router to sink it in the door frame where the latch strikes the opposite side- this will let the latch go inside giving door more room to close. You will have to shave a little off the small trim piece as well-will do my best to send pics later I could text it easier, me and computers don't get along too well.

See photo, but not sure what latches door in place. If it does, does it latch open and closed? Does it use magnets to hold? I tried that without luck. When the magnet let go on an sharp off ramp it was violent door slam.

I have a 30 FR3- the door is like always , it does not latch or lock in the closed position- it just latches when it is in the pocket frame. Not meant to be latched when the door is blocking the hallway. It does close without a gap now and will not mar the wood on the door frame. wish I could put pics In here. Where did you see the pics, I could not find them?

the door still uses the same latch assembly to lock it in the open position, it just has a place for the latch to fit into the opposite side of the frame now when it is shut. had more pics but could not get them loaded.
Also had a pic of tv in bedroom fixed the same way as the one in kitchen where it would swivel up and make use of cabinet behind it.

TV in Bedroom

Lfrazee: You mentioned mounting the bedroom TV to flip up like the main TV. Where did you get the mount, and what size TV did you use?

Thanks

Who did you contact at FR to get the new shower curtain surround? Is there an order number?Is there a FR parts dept direct that will allow me to bypass the dealer?

shower door

My dealer at Alvarado, tx went to bat for me and got it from the factory. Think he called the texas rep for this area. The maint guy at motor home specialist that handled mine is Tim Johnson.
Good luck
Larry

For reference and other unfortunate owners whose shower dribbles on the hallway floor, I discovered the shower enclosure is part number FR3 30169973A.

Wow. Thanks for the part number and mfg name. I love this site. My dealer looked at me with a blank expression. Until I get my new door I made a work around.

I Got the curtain direct from SEA . Install instructions are terrible. There is a side channel that has a thin side and a wide side. It looks like the instructions want me to install this with the wide side facing out. That doesn't seem right as you would see the mounting screws from the outside. I'm about to install with the screws inside against the poorly written instructions. Can any body take and post a few close ups of the channel corners with the Mag striker in place and slightly open?

Are your screws inside the curtain and invisible from outside with the curtain closed?

Not sure if the curtain striker bar should ride in the front track or the back track of the bottom frame and don't want to drill holes until I know.
