You may recall my previous post about the poor alignment on my 2005 Horizon engine door. I finally determined the door hinges were bent and had been that way since I bought the coach new. I just received the new hinges I ordered from Lichtsinn Motors. I noticed the new hinges are now reinforced at the point where mine were bent. Obviously Winnebago realized there was a problem with the original hinges. In case you are interested, the new hinges cost $35.00 apiece.

John,

I didn't attempt to get it covered under warranty since I am traveling and didn't want to take my coach into a dealer. I assume it is too late now since I have already purchased the new brackets and my coach is out of warranty by 5 months.

I have applied to Winnebago to replace my bedroom seals under warranty and that is a much bigger issue than the engine door hinges. So far, they seem receptive since my coach was never in a heavy rain during the first 12 months. I will find out once I return to Denver.

Rex

Rex - my service tech said on the production line they now do the rain bath with the slides OUT. Why they didn't do this from the get-go is baffling.

Leaking slides are a fairly common problem and there is apparently a new gasket kit for the bedroom side. They will be pulling my slide to install the kit. I don't know if this is a newer kit that Lazydays installed last fall, but LD didn't pull the slide as far as I know.

Sorry you had to eat the cost of the hinges.
