We were on the road today -- made it to Bridgeport, NE and decided that was enough for one day. Got a late start out of Smith Center due to some last minute issues.

New doors -- cost is approximately $250 a door and that includes the necessary hardware and install labor. The gas struts are nice and the DW is happy! Me, I would have probably kept my old doors after seeing the new ones installed. New doors are lighter and do not have the flange along the exterior edge. The flange covered the door opening and, IMHO, dressed up the appearance of the doors/coach.

Visit went real well -- great bunch of folks at the Service Center and factory.

Thanks for the info and update. You be careful out there! We are in Lake George, NY. What beautiful country. Had a cool front today may have to turn on the electric blanket tonite.
