Josh, that's really good news about the planned and in progress updates for the pantry, Curt controller, and LP tank. Any retrofits possible? If so, could we get part numbers?

My W came off line in May of last year. I have a friend who has one coming in July. I have the kinks worked out of mine by now. My friend will appreciate the improvements that have been made.

That looks great. I knew something better could be done with that pantry.

Update: I added threaded rods to each side of the shelves. We drove 400 miles with the pantry fully loaded and nothing turned over. The rods are inserted by slightly bending to go into holes on either side.

One thing I learned is a very heavy duty catch is needed as the weight can easily open it on a turn. We had to set the Yeti in front of it until one could be added.

For those who asked for plans I wanted to put some additional info out here. I did not include specific measurements as I expect there will be some inconsistencies in opening sizes. Note that my cabinet decreased in width as it went back and I had to account for that in the box size.

I used prefinished birch plywood with matching vinyl edge banding. The slides are 20" heavy duty 100 pound rated and can be purchased online or a hardware store such as Lowes. I also used the rear brackets you can get for the slides for additional support.

I wish the Grey Wolf line had a person like Joshua. Don't get that level of support in the Grey Wolf line.

Joshua ..... any word yet on the new pantry design with shelves? I ordered my 2401W at the beginning of June. Any idea whether that new design will be done for my delivery?

I'm unsure when it will be done. I only know it was in the works for a redesign.
