Accordion door on kitchen slide

We have a 2004 Monaco Dynasty with an accordion door that is supposed to cover the slide equipment. The precious owner did some rigging of some sort but we have never been able to get it to cover the equipment and would like to fix it once and for all. Anyone out there had the same issue with it not closing the opening when the slide goes out?

That is a Tambor door. It is made of narrow boards with a cloth like canvas glued to the back to make it flexible. You see them on roll top desk and bread boxes. It slides in a track/groove just wider than the boards. It might be hard to move because it is on its side or there may be an obstruction.

This old thread in the Monaco Owner's Forum probably won't help much but it does sound as if could be the exact problem with the same or similar coach as yours.

Not sure what your asking. Is that as far as the door will unwind after pulling on the edge? Those two rings on the end are connected together by a wire and the wire is attached to a part that slides causing it to pull the door closed across the plumbing. The door is wound around a spring roll that will rewind it when the slide is retracted. If that end isn't attached the door will do nothing.

What he said. Access to where the wire bridle attaches is through a panel under the sink on the slide wall. Open the slide. Pull enough stuff out from under the sink to remove the panel. You can now reach through the panel, grab the bridle and pull. The door will unroll against the spring. Find something to attach the bridle to so that the door covers the opening. I think mine was attached to a pipe with a cable tie.

Cheers,
