I just broke my new filter compartment cover, again .....

I was coming out of my RV repair place Friday. The curbed exit was a little high and I did seem to come off harder than usual, but nothing significant. All of a sudden I am dragging the less than 2 month old filter housing cover that I just replaced. Ugh! No damage to the housing (in my case under battery tray) at all. I suspect that where the plastic overhangs the housing must have been bumped and just like in the case I had just replaced, broke the housing at the screw locations.

$300 later, there has to be a better solution than that terrible cover? Has anyone else found one?

LOL. That's funny. It's actually kind of interesting. I don't believe it hit because there are no marks that show an impact on the bottom lip of the cover. I wonder if the housing just flexes too much for the plastic. Idk

On my Mountain Aire on the passenger rear there is a compartment on the bottom with a plastic cover that contains most of the filters for the Cummins. The plastic cover is just to keep dirt and trash out. It's not structural in any way. It's just not strong enough IMO to stand up to flex and frequent removal.
