Red face Fleetwood Expedition (diesel) basement door

We have a 2001 Fleetwood Expedition (diesel) the very front baggage compartment j hinge (on the passenger side) has completely worn out and while trying to take pictures of the door, it literally fell off the coach. Soo we have found and ordered a new j hinge but are at a loss as to how to put this door back on once the hinge is replaced. We have seen where people talk about taking all the doors off from the back forward but we have the hot water tank area that appears to also be in this continuous tack and can not see how to work around it. Is there another way that someone has found that may work?

That extruded aluminum hinge cover is easily cut with a metal saw. That can be removed at that point by removing a couple screws holding it, than the screws that hold the hinges should be visible. Since your door just 'fell off', it sounds like you got something else going on. Maybe some rust ruined the screws?

Anyway, that's what I did to access my basement doors on a '02 Journey. Starting at the very end of the RV, pulled off the plastic cap, than removed the small screws that hold that 'trim/cover' piece on, cut it where it would help me the most, then removed it. Once that trim piece is removed, it's obvious how to access the hinge screws (from low down looking up). Really easy, nothing was harmed, easy to put back together.
'02 Winnebago Journey DL, DSDP, 36' of fun.
