Misaligned Hood on 2005 Winnebago Adventurer
I found a thread with several old posts about aligning hoods. Yellowboat provided a solution for a 2005 Sightseer but I couldn't get the same result. I adjusted, tugged, pushed and fussed, all without success. I finally followed a path similar to Dunnpe in the same thread; Donnpe used hood pins. I purchased two 2" x 1/4 inch clevis pins, two 'D' clips, two small hitch pins and several washers. I removed the 2 bumpers from the upper front, left and right. These were not making contact with the hood anyway. Using the hole vacated by the bumpers, I inserted a clevis pin, slid a few washers over the clevis pin and the attached the 'D' clip. The washers prevent the clevis pin from sliding back and forth while the 'D' clip keeps the washers and clevis pin in place. I placed a piece of painters tape on the inside of the hood and then closed the hood, pushing on the top of the hood to leave a mark on the tape. I lowered the hood, placed tape on the front side of the hood to align with the marked tape on the inside (reduced fiberglass splintering) and drilled a 1/8th inch starter hole from the inside and then drilled 1/4 inch hole from outside to inside, using the starter hole as a guide. Closed the hood, easily aligned hole to clevis pin and inserted hitch pin to lock hood. Repeated on other side. Gap between hood and front of motorhome closed! Cost $6.60 from Home Depot.
