The horizontal cabinet hinges on our new Fiesta LX are very poor quality. 2 or 3 of them bent within the first week. We just replaced all of them with a higher quality hinges from Lee Valley tools and this worked fine. If you need the specs let me know.

I agree on the poor quality. Are your new hinges available at Lows and such?

They probably are. They are standard hinges. The specs from www.leevalleytools.com are as follows :
2-5/8" Self-Closing Standard Hinges
Satin Chrome Flush-Mount Self-Closing Hinge, Pair Item 02H1373
Note : These are Satin Chrome but the Satin Nickle ones are probably a better match.

Hello Bill:
Don't feel like the lone ranger. Two of our horizontal cabinet hinges have the screws pulled completely out. 2007 Fleetwood Southwind. Have gone the "matchstick w/glue" route...only lasted couple weeks. Appears the screws are just too short. DH says next step is longer screws with nut/washer backside.

My Fiesta LX is only a couple of weeks old. When purchased, two cabinet doors were hanging by just one hinge. I've reinstalled with larger screws, but agree it is a great idea to just replace the hardware. I still love the coach and don't mind this kind of repair when the price was right in the first place.
Thanks for the info.
