Anyone experience this? We went out for our first trip of the season. It has been really mild in the Pacific Northwest this year so we could resist.



While we were out we noticed that most of the retangle cabinet doors were coming apart. Upon close inspection I see that there are small nails or brad put in the joints but they came apart.



So I bought some waterproof wood glue and compressed then back. Seems to be working on the first seam I did last night. Now only 6 more seams to go.

I have one that has done that but none of the others. Not sure what causes it but it could be the wood drying out. I would try the same fix as you did. Some members called CR and their defective doors were replaced. Are you stillin warrantee?.

On my 2009 Seville on our first major trip, we experienced several doors breaking apart on rough roads (Interstate thru Montana). The joints slid apart as if they were never glues. The silicone seal used to hold the glass panels in place must have hardened before it ever bonded with the wood frames. CrossRoads replaced all on warranty. Also had ribbing on dinette chairs fall off during transit = poorly made.

Think I'm over my warranty now. No problem, if all else falls. I'll just use duck tape.... Yeah right. We did go on a 5K mile road trip over the summer, so that may account for some of the looseness, but it does seem like the wood dried up some. I'd agree that even though our trailers are very nice, the cheapest method to get the job done is probably part of the blame too.

We have had the same issue with ours each winter. We are also in the PNW. The first winter the RV place we bought it from repaired them under warranty it was only a few of them. Then the second winter same issue only worse. We did get crossroads to send us new cabinet doors. But the RV place would not honor it and said they would install them, but charge us. By the time they arrived were 2 days out from leaving for 3 week trip. So we already repaired what we could and used Duct tape to hold them shut in transit. By the time we were back from the trip..we opted to just store the new ones. We only had a handful of weekend trips planned for the remainder of the season.
So just went down today to start getting it ready and noticed the same thing..that they are trying to split and in some places they are splitting in the wood.
We do have new ones to get installed for this season.
We did have go directly to crossroads to get them replaced. We got in touch with someone and emailed them pictures of what had happened. The dealership was surprised we were able to get replacements.
Now that the dealership is no longer in the RV business..I have no idea where the closest crossroads dealer is.

Well I ended up regluing them with some waterproof glue. I re-installed them yesterday. Our next trip isn't for another month so we'll see how they hold up then..

I had pictures up here last year..that may have been on the old forum.

We have opted to repair the doors again. Save the new ones for when we get ready to trade/sell this one...in 2012/13ish. We will be down to 2 kids by that time and plan on getting a 5th Wheel.

What is odd..is at least in ours it is only the upper cabinets. The lower ones and the bedroom ones have never had this issue.

I do know that when we ordered the replacement ones, we were told by Crossroads they had to special order them, as they no longer used that cabinet maker. So maybe 2008 was the last year with the problem cabinets.
