Fuzion ramp hinge repair

So I noticed that 3 of the coil springs on my ramp door were broken (that explains why the ramp seemed pretty heavy). After multiple back and forth calls to my nearest Keystone Dealer with little progress, I called Lippert direct; who knew they made the coil springs too?!?!

Ordered three replacement coils ($22 ea) and got them in 3 days. Install took about 2 hours but was pretty straightforward.

I removed the "hinges" using a T45 socket for the frame plate bolts and a 1/2" socket for the door plates. Once off, I simply slid off the broken coil springs and replaced with the new ones; using a little silicone to ensure a good seal. Greased all 5 of the zerks and it's back to new (well, except for one of my stripped out t45 sockets... A breaker bar gets much more leverage than a wrench

I was very relieved to see no water damage in the holes and no rot in the surrounding area

Just thought I'd share....

Thanks for your information.

I previously had ordered 133633 before I saw this post and have an issue.

When the my door is closed, the hinges have about 1/4" play and are loose. This would make them very easy to remove and replace. The part I received from Lippert, however, is rotated slightly which prevents installation.

When the spring I received is placed flat on a surface, one spring arm is on the surface and the other is raised about 1/4" off the surface. This is too tight for installation and you would need about 1/2" or 5/8" to be like my other springs and allow installation.

I have marred this one up pretty good in my vise and would not return it to Lippert. I hesitate to order another unless one of you says: " Yes, the one I got has 1/2" rise and installs fine"

thanks for any assistance,

Also, they ship without the two 2" x 3/8" ID clear tube for the ends but Lowes has it.

FWIW, when I first started checking into this, the Keystone dealer told me that there were three different types of coils springs; light, medium and heavy duty but couldn't tell me which one came on my TH. I finally gave up taking measurements for him and called Lippert direct. But the Lippert rep didn't ask for measurements, he only asked the type of TH I had. The part number I listed is for the light duty springs (belong on 08 Fuzion FZ373) which lay flat; both on a flat surface and when installed on the TH (they wiggle a little).

I'd call Lippert direct at 866.524.7821. They were incredibly helpful for both the hinges and my slides!

I'll post a pic of the coil spring.

Good luck!
