I have a new 2013 8289WS and it too will not allow the frig door to be cracked open with the slideouts in. Although there is plenty of room on the other side of the island. I think it depends on where they place the island during assembly.

I slit a piece of hot water 4" long wrap tubing on each door and also one on the counter in front, and close it up been doing it for 4 years. Also if you move your recliners front to front when travel I also use a piece on the shelves next to them or you will rub a whole in the back. Also protect the wall with were the handle touches it. you will rub off the wallpaper.All learned by experience....

Would you mind being more specific? I can't picture what you're saying, but I am sure it would apply to my Windjammer 3029W, also.

I have the same mark, happened going down the road. I can prop the door open after getting to storage. If i was at home i leave the slide out till fully dry with the door wide open.

My unit is a rear lounge area with two recliners. I have to move them side ways for travel and the slides to close. I like facing them front to front. The one chair handle will be against the back wall. The handle will wear a hole in the wall, you need to put something between it and the wall.

We slide a piece of foam pipe insulation on our handle for travel.
We first tried a pool noodle but the hole inside wasn't large enough for it to slide down far enough to stay on during movement.

That would work fine, I place my dogs bed there in between for storage and took care of the problem of where to stall it and protect my wall.....

gljurczyk...how about the strap that holds the recliners and straps into the floor brackets..do you use that? And while on the topic how about the dinette chairs, do you strap those around the dinette table?
