Basement doors

On our 2005 Fleetwood Expedition 37U we need to know how to remove the cargo/basement doors. Not seeing anything in real depth as to how to do this. I need to re-glue the inner skin to the frame.

If not individually hinged, some compartment doors actually hinge in a groove that runs the length of the RV. In that case, you'll have to figure out how the end cap at the back comes off. Once it's off, the doors slide down the groove and off. This means you'll have to remove each door until you get to the one you want to repair.

Mine remove like this. Center of door on upper inside frame you will find a small clip screwed in place. This clip holds door in place side to side. Remove clip. Remove rod ends on both gas struts. Open door to about 10deg off of vertical just beyond gas strut travel. Wiggle and pull door downward and door will come loose from hinge. Reinstall in reverse. I fixed some loose inner panels with construction adhesive and clamps.

Thanks for all the replies. We discovered that there are two pins at the top of the door. Once you slide those two pins out, simply remove the piston arms the door comes off.
