DW put a pretty colored shoe lace on the door handle. Usually a person is looking down while walking up the steps to the bathroom, bedroom and doesn't see the open cabinet door. The string hangs low enough that you see it and prevent the damage to the noggin. Remembering then to close it before any further self inflicted pain.

Cut up swim noodles for the bedroom slide. Two short ones hanging about 3 inches vertically below the corners and one longer one horizontally on the bottom of the slide.

I also hang something from the pin box as it seems that too likes my head.

X 2 on the pool noodles, slice them half way through (long ways, lol). We then cut a V to 45 it around the corner. Works great!

Hey Ron, we don't have that problem! We don't have a door on ours! Only problem with that is if the Gkids want to play with switches they have full range to do so IF we're not close. I really would like one and we'll see if I can get one so I can join the "head knocker club"!

It's too bad RV designers aren't forced to live in their creations before production runs. My DW forgets to close the cabinet door over the toilet. I use the toilet, stand up, and take a corner to the head. My solution: get rid of my DW.

I still have not found the slides yet, but my idea is to remove the hinges and put the entire door on a pair of drawer slides so that the door slides to the left and out of the way. I just haven't found the right ones yet, but are similar to these.

I've considered just removing the door, but the electrical panel is only half of that area. I've toyed with the idea of pulling the door apart, cutting it down, and reassembling it so it leaves the panel open.

DW and I have hit our heads more times then we would like to admit, and a lot of near-misses. We have learned our lesson now (I think). The problem with self-closing hinges is they all have a detent to keep them open at 90 degrees, which defeats the purpose. If I hit my head again, I may relocate the hinges to the top edge, that way it will have to be held open when using the panel, but there will be no way to leave it open.

Bedroom slide head banger, I use pool noodles.
