Slide Interior Obstructions

Considering several new 23-26Ft Rockwood/Flagstaff TT. When slide is closed it blocks either or both bath/refrigerator access. Grocery stocking or roadside lunch require opening the slide. Anyone dealing with this? Wear/tear on the slide a factor? Past units did not pose this problem.

I have a Crossroads Zinger 27RL with slide, but it does not block access to Bathroom, cabinets, or fridge. However, that being said, if I do stop for a quick lunch and the rig is at least close to being level, I always extend the slide and it has not effected the operation of it at all. On further note, I always stop at a place where extending the slide will not block access to others using the same area. The leading edge and corners of the inside portion of the slide are tilted up slightly above floor level and for this reason I am careful not to walk on the "lip" of the slide when it's retracted.

In my TT, with the slides in, it is difficult to get to the kitchen sink, but easy access to the bathroom, and bathroom sink, as well as power panel.

We stop regularly while underway, in gas stations or walmart parking lots, to tend to personal duties as needed, without having to touch the slides.

BUT!!! The one issue I have had with our slides it I had a cupboard door that tended to pop open while towing. Forgot to check it one time and ripped it right out of the wall while trying to open up the slide.

That is one mistake I will NEVER make again. I will always check inside and out for slide obstructions.

Ours blocks access to the head but by opening the slide about 4" access is okay. Ours is a rear kitchen so only access to the head is a problem with the slide in travel position.
