Wood is not a manmade material, sometimes it does things that you don't expect. You shouldn't have a problem getting it replaced under warrenty. Have you been to your dealer with it?

I have had a couple split at the rail and stile joints. I managed to reglue them but they are not as good as original. I get this in the Spring after setting all winter. I believe it is because of the humidity inside the unit.

wood is subject to expansion and contraction due to humidity changes. The raised panel type doors with style and rail construction and floating door panel was supposed to relieve the stress on glued joints but with wood things will happen. I believe you will get a new door.

...and if it was manmade, you could probably expect deficiencies </span>



too! Feel pretty good about CR replacing, based on my own experience with CR. Have a couple that have warpped some and not fitting snug against the door opening, but not enough to worry about. None splitting, yet.

Assuming you have power to your rig off-season, I suggest a small dehumidifier. If you don't want to have to keep emptying it, you could run the drain hose into the toilet, and leave the black water vvalve open, (after draining and flushing well.) There are screen covers available which will keep uninvited guests out of the tank.
