The glass door in our entertainment center opens up as well. Normally for that application you are correct, it would open down, but I just assumed they configured it to open up so that it didn't fall open in transit.

Hey Sarge W,
Good luck with your PDI. Let mw add to other things to my list that I forgot last night.
two failures to caulk:
1. the bottom of the sliding doors in the shower are not caulked and tend to leak a little water under the door... not a big deal, but on my list to fix.
2. all the windows had a nice thick bead of clear caulk across the top except for the big one behind the chairs. Got forgotten like the fender, i guess.
So check your windows.
3. Also forgot to mention, the TV has a swivel mount that attaches above and below. the TV is mounted crooked so that its not level across the top. If you rotate the TV, it tilts in the mount. Don't know if that was done at the factory or if the TV is mounted at the dealer. Haven't fixed it yet.
Later,
L&LO

Hi SkipperW,
Does your hinge have the right screws in it? Does it close ccompletely and engage the magnetic latch? Just curious. Sofar we've had no issues with the mag latch not keeping it closed.

Good info. Our door also opens up. We just prop it open. Can't wait to be able to go out in ours. Where did you stay in Port Oconnor? Happy camping.

If I could ask, what do you use to prop the door open?

Ugh you have not instilled any confidence in me. I'm literally at the airport waiting on my flight to Ohio. So I can inspect my 320RS prior to delivery from RV Wholesalers.

Put it up and then just bring the door above it to hold it up. Just don't forget to close it before you leave.

Gazoink,
Wasn't trying to rain on your parade. Actually, of the various travel trailers, popups, slide-in campers, and tent campers that we have owned over the years, the Columbus is by far and away the nicest, best made RV of the bunch. There are so many good things and outstanding features in this 5th wheel that I couldn't begin to list them all! The fix up process is one of my favorite parts... my wife always gives me the eye and asks, "Oh no, what are you going to "customize" now."
So look yours over carefully, fixup the things that got missed and enjoy.
Larry O
