My 2014 Berkshire 390bh-60 Residential refrigerator hits door trim

There seems to be a manufacturing flaw on the 2014 Berkshire 390bh-60. When you open the right door on the residential refrigerator past a certain point, it hits the door trim above the hallway door. I found my door trim lying on the floor after someone apparently opened the refrigerator to eat something. Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening? I have kids that will just open the door without even thinking about it. Has anyone else experienced this?

I have the same problem. You (and I) and I'm sure others, will need to remove,trim and re-attach the piece of wood that covers the sliding door track. Should be a pretty easy fix.

Same issue here. My trim has yet to fall off, but I'm sure its coming down unless I take action. It doesn't have a chance against the kids!! Let me know if you get a good fix.

I found mine on the floor also. I thought I might rip the trim and put it back up. Haven't had a chance to look at it close to see if that will work.

That will work. I did the same thing and it worked out well. The only problem with the re-install is getting to the part that goes next to the bunks. Still working on that.

Depending on the campground we stay at, sometimes the drive is more fun. I really enjoy driving it.

Same here but I also like most of the campgrounds we stay at, especially Fort Wilderness!

So you would recommend buying MH? How does it do driving in high winds? I live in OK where it seems to always windy.

This is our 4th motor home- 2 class C's and 2 class A's. We really love it. It started out many years ago with just us and our 2 boys. Now both sons are married and we have 6 grand kids. All love to go with us. Haven't had much of a problem in windy conditions but you do feel it. Would definitely recommend it.

The wind will affect anything you drive. The motorhome will be no different than a large TT or 5er. It's bad when windy and traveling along a road that has lots of trees then some open spots where the wind funnels through. Those sudden gust sometimes catch a person off guard, but it's manageable.

To piggy back in this the better you have your front end Alignment and tire pressure set the better it handles. I find mine to handle the wind better than I expected but still a strong wind makes for a long day.
