We were camping out at the dunes recently, and while hunkered down in the RV during a wind storm, my sister in law forgot about the elements outside when she opened the door to exit our rig. The wind took the door handle right out of her hand and hyperextended it as far as it could. The door used to rest at around 80 degrees, and I always thought to myself, it'd be nice if the door actually opened up to a full 90 degree angle. Be careful what you wish for
It now opens up to roughly 110+, but the worst part about it, is there is this god awful sounding "click" every time the door opens and this separate hinge (pictured in this thread) reaches a point on the door frame where it scars/gouges the inside frame and then clears it. I have video of it I can send to anyone, but the forum won't seem to let me post the video from my iPhone.
Any ideas on how this can be repaired?
It looks like you'd have to completely disassemble the door in order to get to the inside mounting point of this hinge arm in question. The other end is mounted on the door framing and is easy to access. It's attached with a grommet or something of the sort, but there is about an 1/8" play on this end of the hinge mounting point....
Thanks in advance for any helpful information
