A less than optimal pantry won't interrupt your trip, a failed taillight controller will (just look at the posts).

Good point - I have my Curt controller in his own little home. Here It is with the lid off. We had that issue on our first trip 1000 miles from home. 4 hours at a forest river dealer while on vacation was pointless but the forum allowed me to quickly diagnose the problem and fix myself. Still waiting for our dealer to call me with a update on our problem, as far as they know my lights are still out. The last words to me was there is no way it could be the Curt controller, its the new LED tail lights. That was 9 months ago but we are doing fine!

Our engineering team is way ahead of you Last I talked to our electrical engineer they had been working with Curt to find a new controller for the outside.

kysunseekermbs,
I have seen pull out pantries in homes and they have the slide brackets mounted on the floor of the cabinet. Since we do not have a cabinet floor at door bottom level how did you mount the slide hardware?

Good news! How can you tell when you get a new unit whether you have the old one where I better would do some mods or a new one?

And BTW - I highly appreciate all the support Brian and Joshua provide on those forums, as well as FR customer support. That is part of why I ordered a FR motor home again, I do not expect it to be trouble free but I know I am not left alone!

I'll check with engineering to see when a prototype comes through.

The slides are mounted to the bottom sides and there is one on the top middle. The bottom side slides have rear brackets as well that attach to the rear wall. Placing them both on the bottom would not be as strong as they can flex. The one on the top is just to keep it in line the bottoms are strong enough to hold the weight.

Great idea. I had a pull out on my last 5er and really liked it. I didn't even think about changing this one.Right now I have several rolls of paper towels in there keeping things from moving to the back.There is actually lots of room but access sucks.
