Unhappy Slideout problem...not sure its my fault.

I have a Winnebago Voyage 32h, it has the large full side slide on the driver side. I was just on a trip recently when I was pulling the slid in getting ready to head out when I heard a large BOOM. I ran outside thinking something got caught in the slide or something and could see nothing. I pulled the slid out and noticed what had happned, one of the basement doors edges got caught on the slid and it bent it back and up so that the slid was getting caught and was now not fully closing. I came back home went to the dealer and they tell me that its my fault becasue I unclip the basement doors when I open them sometimes and the pressure that causes made the hinges move which ultimatly made the door get in the way of the slide. I found this to be a bit crazy but maybe thats just me. I am SO careful with the doors, I was shocked. Now they want $1800 to fix. Not sure if it has anything to do with what happned , but my MH was at their dealership prior to my trip and the problem happened the first time I opened and closed the slide after getting the MH back. I think even if it is the pressure and stress on the hinge from me undoing the clips when I open it, it just should not be. Should I call Winnebago maybe? Any ideas? Maybe I just needed to vent. Pretty frustrating. Thanks!

It seems to me that if the basement doors are made to be unclipped when opened then you used them as they were designed; and if the hinges deform when they are unclipped, then it is a material or design defect and it is NOT your fault.

Definitely worth a call to Winnebago. What do you have to lose at this point?
