Trim by door

Have an unusual question. We have a 2001 Alpine. On the hinge side of the entry door on the outside there is a piece of metal that sticks out the length of the door. Can you tell me what the purpose of this is, and if you can get a replacment piece. Our has 2 spots where it has snapped off a piece. Thanks in advance.

I was told by WRV that piece is designed to reduce wind noise, I do not know where you can get a replacement.

Had the same issue. This was about 8 years ago. IIRC the shop got the replacement piece from PTL Engineering; the folks that made the doors and the posi-lock.
Hope this helps.

Mine was all beat up. I ran 2 layers of blue painters tape along the side of it to protect the coach paint, and used a vibrating plunge cutter to cut it off. Can't tell it was there and don't miss it.
