Goofy stuff on the new 30’ Classic (2021)

I will have an in-depth review of my experience with the new Classic soon, but until then, an observation or two about some eyebrow raising items...

1. There are four wooden shelves that come with hardware (support pins) for mounting inside the shallow bathroom cabinet against the rear wall, just above the floor. In my case, the support pins were too long for the pre-drilled holes and did not fit properly, preventing installation of the shelves. 🤨

It was necessary to grind down the pins by about an eighth of an inch each (there are 16, four for each shelf) in order to get them to properly fit. See photos attached.

Are they paying you to do the PDI?

Definitely a dealer do. 'Here is a shelf option for this storage space, would you like us to install the hardware?
But then again....no would probably have been the correct answer.

Why did you choose to grind the pins instead of drilling out the holes?

Less work, in the end.

Drilling out the holes would necessitate more precision (lining up the bit in a very tight space, ensuring correct depth), and there are many more holes (as options to place the pins) then there are pins.

Your call, but the hole depth does not matter because the pin can only insert so far. I would have put a piece of tape on the drill bit and had the job done in less than 5 minutes. Yes, the cleanup would have to be in the trailer instead of the shop but I agree with the least amount of work concept, anyhow.

While you are at it, put a small piece of 2 sided tape on the front L and R brackets where they contact the shelf. The shelves will stay put during travel. Use some Amazon packing air bags to hold stuff in place when you close the cabinet door before travel and things won't fall off, out and into the sink, or floor in your case.

Good call! I have the same year & model ( 2018 Classic 33 ), and the two additions made a huge difference!

Knife maker, have you had any other issues with your 33?

Let me know if you have been successful in drilling those holes, especially the ones near the back of the cabinet. Very tight.

I am truly blown away! Spend $100,000 + on a 2021 A/S 30' and have to grind hardware or drill deeper hardware holes. "Come On Man" , has A/S truly lost it already medocare quality to a lower standard? In the past, they blamed the poor quality on the equipment they purchased from a vendor and outfitted it in an A/S.

Akmoores, knifemaker

Might take a look at “Medicine cabinet organization” on the current Classic forum side. Dowel rods in the shelf slots along with the dab of silicone on the shelf supports work very well to keep things in place.

I had the exact same problem. I took it in under warranty. Unfortunately I didn't think to make which shelves to use so I will probably have to do a workaround myself eventually (or take it back again)

Our '21 Classic 33 did come with 2 medicine cabinet shelves, but no mounting hardware pegs. Found them at Home Depot-the larger pegs worked because our cabinet holes were big.
I like the dowel idea for keeping things in place during travel days.

On my 202 Classic, I also had to drill out the holes on the sides so the shelf brackets would fit. Since the brackets had holes, I purchased small screws and screwed each shelf bracket into the bottom of the shelves...they are going nowhere.
