Have you tried cutting a strip of wood to fit in the track that would keep the cabinet doors from sliding? You'd have to remove it before opening the doors.

I wrapped some tape around the catch (?) on my left side door. It is on the lower left. I need to do again.

I had just the opposite on mine...the doors were a booger to slide open. I found that the plastic 'runners' the doors slide on was a tad crooked...I unscrewed and straightened and now they slide like they are supposed to. You may check the track and maybe/just maybe make it a tad 'crooked'.....slow the movement anyway.

We have the same issue with the left door. I lowered the bunk and got up there to look. Fleetwood built a support box that is to big to let the door fully close. I will have to grind it down about 1/4"

I just had this fixed by REV Factory Service in our end of warranty punch list.

There were two issues:
1. the slides were not level. The fix is to remove the door (you have to get up under the door with a small screwdriver to release the catches), and then remove/adjust/replace the screws to ensure the slides are level. If you have a loft bed, obviously it needs to be down to do this.

2. the wood trim on the loft bed was somehow interfering with our LH door latching in the closed position. They removed the trim, trimmed it down, and then reinstalled it. I didn't see which specific piece of trim it was, but they said they removed 1/2" of it!!!!!!

Oh there, that's the one, and our issue was with the LH door too! They took 1/2" off the support.
