Sorry Jeff... I hope you can get it fixed at a reasonable price.

There is only one RV manufacture I hate, Fleetwood.. They have been screwing employees and customers for years!!!

Figures I dump one POS for another POS

My door has about a 1/2 inch of movement on the left side and all the screws are pulled out. You cant see it unless you remove the diamond plate cover that covers the area once I did that i new I was fucked. Guess its common waiting to here what the fix is.....

Jeff,

Steve had his door frame assembly come off when we went to Mammoth this summer. I used tie downs to bring it into alignment and then we lag bolted the entire unit back into place. These repairs are still working for Steve.

Here is what the RV.net poster PMed me back.......

Yes. Since Fleetwood went BK there is no recource but I took it to Dave @ American RV in Cypress. He fixed it for around $250.00. He reinforced it with some bigger bolts. The door frame is a lot stonger than ever now. His number is: 714-527-4851

I have great luck with him and get great service at fair prices.

Good luck

Are they just wood screws? Toggle bolts?

On Steve's rig, Weekend Warrior used only wood screws to attach the rear ramp door frame to the trailer body.

We re-drilled the existing holes in the metal frame as well as drilled additional holes, and used lag bolts to reattach the ramp frame. This also helped to draw the frame back where it belonged. It probably is better attached with these repairs than when it left the factory.

BTW, this process took time to happen. Steve noticed a small amount of separation at the top a couple of years ago and his fix was to apply silicone sealant to the crack. The road trip to Mammoth was the straw that actually created a 1/2 inch separation. He was lucky that he didn't have the ramp and frame fall off on the highway.

thats what I meant to say, LAG not Toggle, brain fart.

Jeffy, is it fixable at home? Sure some of us (well maybe not me considering) could fix help fix it up.

Same people I was going to take your heater to Jeff. Good folks. I'm sure they would be happy to tell you how they've repaired other rigs.

Easy money - not 1 fucking screw was in the thing they all fell out most were missing. I put 3 screws in and the thing felt solid again. I took her back to storage and went to the hardware store to get everything I need $11.33 - Tomorrow I will replace all screws on both sides and add a few more.
