Working on my list: the hinges of the door are looking very worn. I see that there are springs mounted on the hinge pins and can't imagine what those little thing would be for because they won't stop the door from banging open in any wind and they won't hold the weight
of the door "up" on the hinge assembly...hummmm.
Anyway, the hinge is showing major wear and I'm wondering if replacing the hinges would go a long way towards re-centering the door in the doorway?
I also believe that we have some sag coming out between the walls and have read some of the discussions regarding supporting the roof to properly support the walls and the door frame. I know that too will realign the door in the door opening. I first noticed the walls sagging or bellying out when I attempted to place the dinette table down into the bed position and the edges of the benches were not parallel. I began thinking about cutting a new table top to solve the problem but then realized what would make those two seats spread apart like that...well, still need a new tabletop because the laminate on the old one is in rough shape.
Sorry for rambling...what about those hinges? Will they lift the door back up? I've checked the Scamp
part store and the hinges have changed the configuration so I'll have to fill holes and redrill if I use "new" hinges, which I suspect I'll be forced to do.
However, I don't understand the reason for the brass ball or spring. Maybe I can simply replace the bolt/pin, ball and spring assembly. Can someone explain this mechanism?
