Pretty sure your hinges are on the wrong side of glass. The plastic screws are pretty weak so dont be surprised if they break. I had the same issue on a new Flagstaff a few years ago and a couple of my screws broke. I called Suburban and they sent me a new set hinges and screws.

X2... Our brand new Rockwood MiniLite 2506S had the hinges backwards from the factory... Our dealer reserved them.. Problem solved..

On my 2019 Furrion range, the front glass lifts up and towards the back, and rests on the rear glass. Then the rear glass folds backwards toward the wall. If I have attempted to fold it the other way, as in the lower picture in post #1, the hinges will be bent. Don’t ask me how I know. Once the hinges are bent, nothing seems to work right, folding it either way. I managed to straighten out my hinges and have since remembered how to fold the glass correctly. Replacement hinges are hard to find, and unreasonably expensive.

Yup. Looks like it is unanimous. Thanks

Yes I think it folds to other way, I know that it does not feel right, I had the same issue then tried folding it the other way and it works. Hinges will feel a little stiff but will work.

Good luck and happy camping
