Fleetwood Entry Door Hinge Introduction:
Have you been looking for a way to fix your entry door hinges on your Fleetwood RV?
As you probably already know original RV entry door hinges are made from soft extruded aluminum. Each bracket wears on the steel separating washers until the brackets are forced to bend when the door is fully closed.
This causes the door to become misaligned and creates wind noise and water leakage. Eventually, the brackets crack and the door becomes very difficult to close and open. The top hinge assembly is the first to wear and break. Typically, if the top hinge assembly is worn, bent or broken, the middle one is beginning to fatigue as well.
To restore door alignment and functionality, hinge replacements are necessary.
We carry brand new replacement hinges which are a direct bolt-on replacement for the originals. They are made from CNC machined billet steel and aluminum. By machining these from solid blocks of metal, maximum strength is achieved. The top and bottom bracket of each hinge assembly is machined from solid steel to ensure maximum durability of the part that is most prone to breakage on the original design.

- A high quality threadlocker like loctite is recommended during installation to improve mounting hardware retention (available at any auto parts store).
- Replace each hinge assembly one at a time to ease installation and avoid removing the entire door.
- Replace or reinstall the door weatherstripping to ensure a good seal is made between the door and the RV.
- Some entry doors are assembled with a backing plate that the mounting screws thread into on the main door frame (RV). This backing plate will drop down into the wall when the hinge assembly is removed. You can either attempt to retain it while replacing the hinge assembly or use a size larger sheet metal screw during replacement.
