1998 Winnebago Chieftain Bathroom door hinge

Ive done some internet searching and cant find this. My bathroom door opens and doubles as a privacy door for the back of the coach. There is a 6 inch section of the door piano hinge that is spring loaded to bias the door open...
Where can I find this? I dont want to hang magnets or velcro if this is a cheap part...

Don't know, never did find one myself. Maybe call Lichtsin, I didn't but have now traded anyway.

I bought one through Lichtsinn Motors several years ago and one from the factory when we were there for the Grand National Rally a couple of years ago.

Note that usually only one of the two springs breaks and you can remove the rods from the two hinges and replace just the broken spring.
The rod has one end upset (mashed flat). Just use a small punch or something pushing on the round end of the rod to remove it and the springs.
