Does it look something like this? This is the front bunk. Just had the bunks on my 2011 233s redone...again (2nd set of new bunks) and came across the same problem you're having. Not sure what I can get done by next Wednesday when I take off for a 4hr tow. All sets of bunks have had different issues...now this. Email to Roger and Gregg going out tonight. The factory has done both of my replacements btw. We'll see what happens.

Our 23ikss has these kind of latches, I didn't know they came with the other style. We've had no problems with our roo at all. After someone else on this forum suggested we put a piece of pipe insulation on the top of the kitchen slide before we open the awning. So far we love our ikss, we camped over Memorial day when it was 32 deg in the morning and the heater and heated mattress kept us perfectly comfortable.

Obviously, Star I am not, but I assume the pipe insulation was used so that the awning wouldn't rub on the kitchen slide. It looks like it could be a close fit judging by the few pictures I've seen, just a guess.

Oh I see..but with that over it wouldn't it be closer to the awning and just flap on that instead? Or was the concern that the kitchen slide top was shape and would damage the awning?

Is yours a 2013 or 2014? Hearing that they changed the latch design on the 14's to try to avoid that problem.

I just picked up our new 2014 Roo 231KSS, we are planning our first trip for next weekend. I like the suggestion of the pipe insulation on the kitchen slide it is very close to awning. Any other suggestions before the maiden voyage?
