Door hinges Triple E

I have a 2005 Triple e Commander 32. The last basement door has a broken rubber hinge. The door actually came off in my hand. I have a new hinge ordered, but not able to have it placed. The repair facility is not able to place it in a timely fashion. Any suggestions on how I can stabilize the door for travel. It is in place and stationery, have the storage door locked. Have driven it about 20 miles with no untoward effect. Help!

The simplest fix would be to install Duct/Duck tape all around the door seams including the top where the rubber hinge is.

The only problem with this is that when you remove the duct/duck tape you will have some sticky residue left.

Just make sure you have Goo-Gone or Easy-Off handy when you remove the tape. The sooner you can remove the tape the better.

P.S. I have a 2000 Triple E Commander 3505GS, great coach.

Happy to report that's our hinge problem is solved. Our dealer wouldn't schedule us in, much to our displeasure. Found an independent repairman who replaced the hinge within an hour of our receiving. Our dealer has lost a good customer. Sorry Gayle Kline RV in Mountville, Pa. Now off to Maine for a month or so

Good thing they did it for you. I had to replace the one on my propane compartment door What a pain. Mine is a 99 signature and the rubber just got hard and broke. I bought extra rubber hinge as I am sure if one broke due to age then the other doors will let go in the near future. If yours has air shocks to hold the doors up and another one breaks, I would for sure use duct tape if you have to drive before you get it fixed.

Use Gorilla tape - if necessary - no residue.
