My Dometic Americanna, model RM 2551 is in need of a new freezer door. It is a small plastic interior door and was forced breaking at the hinge . I found Dometic has the outer door shell, which is all I need, for only $93. I am kinds use to being "hosed" on RV parts but this one took me by surprise as the part is simply plastic. I would just put a hinge on but not sure what is inside the freezer shelf. Anyone have any thoughts on repair solution or a cheaper source? I am in Portland Oregon and do not know of any RV salvage yards
For myself I would go old school aluminum. I think the pre fab laminate walls are more for the convience of manufacturing than for the consumer. With aluminum you can replace a section if damaged and no chance of delamination we all read so much about.
Yes it is possible to buiold quality. It is just not happening for the most part. Hafve you seen the Youtube video's from the RV asembly line? Workers running with walls stapling it all together with speed being the priority. Not quality. I have owned a few trouble free RV's like my previous 1958 Oasis. Built by craftsmen who took pride in the end product. The industry should be ashamed. And shame on us for continuing to spend our life savings on this ****! Do you honestly think pre formed walls or rubber roofing or frameless windows is to the advantage of the consumer? No way
As previous poster said this is how the dealer makes money so his trade in value will probley be insulting. Even is you sell it yourself at a really good price you will be money ahead.Selling can be a hassle though I see yours as an easy sale. Is it worth the cash diffference? Only you can decide that. Best of luck.
