Outside kitchen door

Hello friends:
I have a 2011 surveyor 295
Love the outside kitchen but after 2 seasons had the outside kitchen door
replaced under warranty. Big crack in the hinge.
Sadly it's happening again, I have been very cautious with the door and
no longer leave it open as much but it's happening again.

Any one else with this issue?

Db

A picture of door and cracked hinges would help for someone to propose a solution....

Mine has delaminated and will be replaced this fall under warranty on my 305.

My 2012 SP295 cracked. They replaced the whole door and hinge assembly along with door decals. It seemed fine after that but we've traded for a 2013 Select 305 and am hoping they've addressed that issue as it has the kitchen also( we couldn't live without an outside kitchen now!)

Just spoke w Forest River yesterday, they will fix the door again for free.
They are having issues from the vendor who makes it.
I was amazed that they would admit to problems, in today's world that is
unheard of for a company to do.

Glad their fixing it. Two summers on our Puma and no cracks as of yet in kitchen door. And it is easy to admit to problems when you can place blame.
