I'm going to try a pair of longer bungee cords, attached from floor to ceiling to screw-eyes, in the GK pantries for transit. I read here that they can push the door open, or at least rub against the door. Felt pads would prevent the rubbing, but five-foot cords may prevent both. I always used to tie double-handled cabinet doors together, just in case, and make sure that nothing breakable was in the single door cabinets. The foam pipe insulation over the island edges seems like an excellent idea -I already have some in the basement.

In our 36FL we have had the bedroom cupboard doors and drawers open so we secure them with bungee chords.

Haven't experienced any issues with kitchen doors opening so we don't do anything. However the dishwasher does tend to open so we secure it with a piece of tape on each side. Works well.

My 40KB has a narrow section of that pantry going up the stairs. I have only moved 2 times and both times the door was open and all the drawers were out. So I guess this is going to be a problem to addresse.

Many on the forum have installed latches on each of the drawers within the pantry to keep them from sliding while underway.

I met a guy with a 40KB last night in our campground, had same problem. He uses an adjustable shower rod to fix his. Going to try that first. I also noticed that ours is only about 4ft tall were as the 38gk and others is much taller and more area to cover. Don't know if shower rod would be long enuff.

Not sure about your setup but in our RL I use a long piece of dowel that I covered with the insulation you use on water pipes. Stores behind the couch when not in use. Might work for you?

We went low tech. Piece of 1x4 and a couple of small blocks screwed into the inside of the top rail to trap the top of the board on both sides . We store the board under the couch when not being used. Those drawers are not going anywhere when we're moving

After reading this I knew I had to keep the pantry door closed while traveling. I also needed a place to put the dog bed. I shoved the dog bed between the pantry door and the Island and it worked great. Killed 2 birds with one stone.

I used a padded 1x2 long enough to fit top to bottom. Latch at each end to hold in place. Stores on floor of closet and about 2 minutes to install or put away. Drawers can't move.

I guess I went even lower tech. In our RL, I take the throw pillows off the couch and place one upright on each end of the island before I put the slide in. That pads (and immobilizes) the pantry door and dish drawers from "traveling" while we're traveling. Once we arrive, I throw them back on the couch.

We use the expandable shower rod on both pantry doors from top to bottom to contain the drawers. The cabinet doors close with the rods inside. Works great.

We had the same problem on ours. The problem is due to the way the cabinet is built you can't get to it to replace or fix it with removing the fireplace on our 31SL. I took the side doors off and my wife and worked together to get it unsprung and open. As it had probably got smashed in at the dealer at some point.

We had the pantry door fall off except for the top hinge. We now use a 1 by 3 held in place with velcro at the top and bottom. I added chair leg felts for each drawer. Nothing moves. The new door is currently being installed along with a number of fixes - desk latch, drawer, front closet door that broke along the screws hoding it to the hinges, etc. Better some of the problems be less unsaid.
