Not the whole kitchen but ours does have the propane refrigerator in the slide. Over 14 years with no problem, at least, and i'm knocking on wood as i type this, not so far.

This thread makes me feel good; just recently bought an RV with the kitchen slide (sink, stove, microwave, as well as dinette). Kinda wondered about the lines (hot & cold, drain, propane) as well. Nice to know that it is not a common problem.

Pretty much any coach with opposing slides in the living area would likely would have at least one kitchen appliance or sink in a slide. All mine are in one slide out with no problems. My water lines are PEX in the bathrooms and braded steel in the kitchen so someone was thinking at the factory.

Not having a MH but a tt with a kitchen in the slide. Once while investigating a slide issue, I had taken off a panel under the kitchen slide and noticed a water supply line that was "rubbing" over a sharp metal edge of the wheel well metal. Over time that "might" have caused a leak. Ended up bending all exposed tabs over and running duct tape along all metal edges.

It would never stop me from buying a RV with a kitchen slide.

We have the kitchen slide in our 98 American Eagle. I checked the slide and all its connections when we purchased it this summer; and found no problems. I t was my first thought that our first problem would have been in the kitchen slide. I found that the plumbing and mechanicals in the slide and that area was very well made and secured.

Better to search, and ask questions BEFORE you purchase than to seek advice and ask questions on how to fix a problem AFTER you have unknowingly bought into a problem design or vehicle!

My previous motorhome was a Tradewinds, and had a problem with the main grey water drain pipe for the sink.
It was made out of 1 1/2" flexible PVC, and during the winter it hardened up from the cold temperatures and would not roll out with the slide.
It was a pain to change out, but worked fine afterwards.

Our '02 DSDP had the galley in the slide, in the 13 years we owned it I never had any leaks nor did I need to repair anything. The present rig has the galley in the slide and I don't expect any problems with it either and there are no signs of any leaks now.

Absolutely zero issues since the coach was new, but you know I'll remove a couple of drawers next time I'm in coach to get a good visual now that everyone is talking about it.

I don't have a MH but have owned my 2003 Teton from day one. Hot water heater is also in the kitchen slide & no problems. Did just have to replace the heater but that was age related not slide related. No problems in my Voltage kitchen slide either.

Kitchens mounted in a slide out

Yes, it is a problem!! My first class A, an '09 Journey busted a water drain pipe just from fatigue bending back and forth from the slide going in and out. Then I traded for another Winnebago that I purposely chose with sink not in the slide and had no problem for four years. Then I upgrades to a new Newmar tag with sink in the slide and within eight months I have had two hoses leak from chaffing the hose each time the slide goes in and out rubbing against a metal support piece.
