    Sharp Corners

    So, my wife and I bought a 2021 Solitude 375RES. The pantry is located between the refrigerator and the overhead cabinet that is located directly in front of the entry door. Now, I like most people like straight lines. Grand Design does this very well on the flares at the bottom or the hanging cabinets. They do it so well the they create very sharp corners. i am 6'1". I weigh 230 lbs. i am not huge but neither am i small. So, often when I reach into my pantry and pull my arm out...I was getting a somewhat deep gash on the side of my forearm. I had to buy rubber corner pads to prevent that from happening. Is that common?

    I would hope that any RV should not draw blood with normal use...

    I have been reading this forum for years and this is the first time I have heard of this. Believe me, if there was someplace for me to scrape my arm or band my head I will find it. You can find pool noodles, sliced and stuck in odd places around my RV.

    X2 as Dallas shared. Been here for nearly 7 years and this is a first. It would seem you would want to look into this further and see exactly what it is that seems to be the issue and correct it.
