Just a re-cap here. Looks like I need some 316 SS washers in 3/8 size, and a spary can of Boeshield T9. My door works fine, it's the darn rust that harms my aesthetic sensitivities. It's good to know about the Husky u-joints too. Hopefully I'll not need them. Once I get a chance to get at this I WILL report back. Thanks all!

Frank

The hinges were done in this way because he was hanging a curved door on a curved trailer side so accurate alignment was not the solution. Molding flats in the two parts would have allowed a wider choice of higher quality stainless fittings.

or if he had some custom stainless steel parts made exactly like what was being used.

door not lining up

The upper left corner of our door is digging into the door frame. The upper hinge is not properly supporting the door. Looks like I may need to replace some parts here.

Molding flats can have it's issues as well if the hinges are not set correctly. I ran into that on my Trillium. This is a clever solution with a poor choice of parts. Has anyone removed a hinge and looked for a manufacturer? From the picture it looks like a plated strap hinge that they welded the universal joint to. Since Kobalt is a Lowes brand I wonder if the hinges came from there as well. If you can get the same parts, you could make a spare should the hinge fail down the road. Not perfect but better than nothing. Good luck, Raz

Sounds like a plan. I will do the same. A friend of mine has a Harbor Freight shop lift which I plan to use to lift and hold the door while I replace the washers and lube the hinges.

When I visited Parkliner last year for installation of my awning, the techs noted a similar problem with my door. They removed the door and upper hinge and moved the hinge a bit to the right by re drilling the holes. The door lined up fine after that.

Same with mine.

I think what happened with mine is my site was extremely sloped, so I had to use 3 2x6's plus crank it all the way up. A big gust of wind hit me and ripped the door out of my hand when I was getting out of the trailer. I think the stress was enough to twist the door and get it out of alignment.

I added some washers which made the door usable until Parkliner fixed it.

Frank, Check out the hinges that Scamp uses. They are also "articulated" to accommodate the curved door and trailer surfaces.

Thanks Robert, but no problems with the hinges other than aesthetics. I got my can of T-9, just need some SS washers. Heck, even SS can rust. I got small SS clasps for my stinky slinky holder last year and they're rusting already!

Thanks,

Frank
