    Get rid of the center hinged bathroom door

    On our 3720RL the center hinged bathroom door cannot be opened far enough to access the bathroom with the long slide out in. We just experienced a slide out problem that required access to the bedroom through the bathroom with the slide in, a task that required removal of the center hinged door. That feat required laying in the limited space on the hall floor between the closed slide and the bathroom wall while using a wrench to remove the bolt from the bottom door swivel mechanism. The top bolt was a bit more challenging. Moulding prevents access to the bolt from the outside, therefore the door has to be opened to the extent possible so that while standing outside you can maneuver the wrench from the inside. I'd suggest that Keystone please send a moderately to large framed technician to attempt the removal one of these doors with the slide in to understand what I've described. At our earliest opportunity we will have this door converted to standard hinges so that the bathroom can be accessed with the slide in.

    The lack of access to the bathroom and fridge is one of the reasons that keep us happy with our 3402RL. So many of the floor plans have no access to critical areas without the slides out.

        We have a 2017 3721 and one of the first mods we did was to convert the bath pivot door to be a regular hinged door that swings in up against the toilet.

        We love it and now our 3721 is the perfect floor plan.

          My 3791 must be designed better. We have access to bathroom and bedroom with slides in. We can't get the fridge door open but that's OK. The hinged bathroom door is Ok with me and wife.

            Your not the only one that I've heard they don't like pivot door. It seems to work better on some floor plans then others.

              I could never understand that design.
