    How do you remove the salon door on a 3888?

    I need to take the salon door off to replace my refrigerator, but am not sure how to take the salon door off. Can anyone help or send me a pic?

    There was a how to on the old software, I think. Generally, because my memory has been called infirm from time to time, the lower casters adjust from the ends of the door and need to be raised so that the door drops, I believe there is a removable rail on the cockpit side of the tracks. Then the door can be lifted a bit and the bottom rotated aft then down and the door should be free. It’s going to take a couple of you to handle it as it tilts forward and will throw a single person off balance.
    If I see something different when I get to the boat next, like tomorrow or Saturday, I’ll update.

          You must remove the bottom metal runner which is in two parts, a trim strip and the runner itself. Remove the trim first then slide the door back and forth to access all of the track runner screws. Pull the bottom of the door rearward and the track and door will come out.

            Make sure that you protect the cockpit floor with carpet or similar. The door is quite heavy, and the job is easier with 2 people, particularly during installation where the door and track have to be lifted in place simultaneously.

              I have removed the fridge from my 38 without removing the door.
              It will fit through, if you remove the upholstered end cover of the seat (on the left as you walk inside).
