The hood on our MH (05 Winnebago Voyage) sags about 1 inch at the top when closed. has anyone had this occur and what adjustment did you do to correct it?

I had the same thing happen with our '05 Sunrise. If you look carefully at the hinges of your hood you will be able to see that they are adjustable. Our motorhome is in storage right now so I'm going by memory only but if I remember correctly there is 2 nuts on each hinge, on the outside side of the hinges so you have to reach around with the proper size socket wrench to loosen or tighten them. It's just a matter of loosening them up, adjusting the tilt of the hinges to the proper angle, and tightening them up again. Took me maybe 1/2 hour to do once I saw what had to be adjusted. I don't remember what size socket I used, I would guess around 1/2" to 5/8". Good luck- it's not to hard to do, definately a handyman project!

Easyrider:
Thanks for the reply and instructions. I'll give it a try in a couple of days. The dealership said they tried to adjust it but we know how that usually goes.

Had the same problem on ours. I had to end up making the adjustment slots longer in order to get enough movement to tighten up the gap between the hood and the rubber seal at the top. I removed the hood and used a 1/4" die grinder to elongate the slots.
