Arrow CC Entry Door - DoorCheck Problems

Country Coach owner/engineer has developed a Replacement Rod for the Door Check Assembly, guaranteed for the life of the coach. This Replacement Rod Kit replaces the faulty original Rod with a high tensile strength 303 stainless part that will allow for the use of most of the original parts of the door check assembly. This modification and parts are easily installed by the Coach Owner, Coach Dealer or Service Center. The Replacement Rod Assembly comes complete with easy to follow step-by-step instructions and drawings. The estimated time for installation is approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours.

The Door Check Assembly being used was designed for use in the Automotive Industry and not for Motor Coach Doors. Used in this application, the weight of the Coach Door along with the angle in which the Assembly works, puts undo weight and stress loads on the Rod. Because of this, it is certain that the Rod will fail under normal use conditions in a short period of time. If the door is caught by the wind and allowed to travel beyond the stop, failure most probably will be immediate.
