By the way Yale, we were at B. Young today, and I asked about the Fridge fix... Ours was done AT THE FACTORY! It was kind of funny because we were talking to "Richard" about "the fridge fix" and another guy overheard and came over and said, "DO YOU HAVE A REDWOOD?!!" I think it might be a popular topic among the services guys

Yeah, I think they know about it for sure! Glad yours was done right to start with! So far I'm liking the latches too

He tried several things, different solvents, lubricants, even drilled small holes in the hinge and injected grease into the hinge...nothing seemed to help.

I would suggest discussing this with your dealer and/or Redwood for resolution. You should pursue getting the TV amp moved with the dealer/Redwood, behind the tv is not an acceptable location, it is unreasonable to expect you to remove the TV every time you need to engage or disengage the amp.
I looked at a couple of brand new Redwoods last week, and the door hinges are AWFUL. They are not the same as mine, nor are the top hinge cabinet doors. The main door hinge was the worst I have ever seen, and I'm not sure I would accept it.

Are you talking about interior door/cabinet hinge-closures?

We, or "I" had trouble with opening the entry door. Hubby adjusted the strike plate and I was able to open it myself. I'm not a 'weenie', but that d@ng door had me crying after we took delivery. If I can't open the door without help, this is going to be a very, VERY bad experience. Small adjustment in that, also made an adjustment in my attitude towards the RW.

Na- I was talking about the entry door. Either these I looked at were packed with grit, or there is something definitely wrong with the new hinge on the door. They didn't swing freely, they required muscle to move them all the way to open.

I do like the new outdoor cabinet hinges on the ones with struts, far superior to mine.

Ours too was as if it was locked when we first got it ! Took both hands to unlatch it.... and the wife couldn't... as you said Brad, it took a real PUSH to open the door all the way, but at least the wind doesn't blow it

ExploreUSA had 3 tries at fixing it and then while out for a week we couldn't get the door to latch one night and then barely got it open the next morning so it was time to do something...

I tried adjusting the striker plate, but it only made it worse, so borrowed a hammer and beat the 'stuff' out of the striker plate I was so frustrated!

It looks like crap now, but at least we could get in and out the rest of the trip!

Ours has the short post coming out from the wall close to the top of the fridge. We never mentioned the fridge tipping to the dealer, so would assume it is a factory installation.
