No recall, just me being overly concerned. Mine will be covered under warranty.

Our '09 320TE came with the power ramp door. We took the power lift off for 2 reasons. The mechanism took up too much space in the garage and it was too slow. I could drink one beer and have to get another by the time the door opened or closed. I don't remember how may springs ours has, but it does have the zerks on the hinges.

I have heard of quite a few taking theirs off because of space. But with me using all 14' of my garage for 4 large toys at times, I have never had it get in the way yet. And mine is actually pretty fast. It can lower the door in about 25 sec and raise it up in about 30 sec.

Update......

The spring setup did not solve the flex issue. We are now working with Keystone in hopes to find a fix that does not require drilling more holes in the door to move the actuator arm up or drill more holes in the floor of the garage to move the actuator to the other side of the garage where there appears to be more support on the door for such torque. We'll see, may end up being a moot point.

Thanks Mav,
Removing the actuator is not an option for me but the flex bugged me knowing what the structure under it looks like. I have visions of all the plywood blocking just floating around loose. Please keep us in the loop.

Very interesting Mav. You always find this kind of stuff. I'll have to open/close mine tomorrow and take a look. I went outside and looked and our 2010 322TE has 5 springs and 7 connection points on the hinges.

I wonder if the installation was done correctly. Placement is very important to not overload or bind the actuator. So far, Keystone has done everything asked(including building me a new toy hauler in the past), just taking longer now becuause the local dealer is the middleman.

We first saw this electric lift on a Fuzion 5th wheel and liked the idea. After calling Lippert and getting nowhere we went through our local RV shop and had one installed. At first it worked OK but then would quit part way up and we'd have to lift it up manually after disconnecting the rod. We found that dispite the motor saying it was 6 amp in fact it draws 14 amp and doesn't get hot so it is working properly with a 15 amp breaker. I should note that our TH has the springs on each side of the door so we haven't had the related problem discussed here. In my experience the way the manufacterer handles these claims shows me what to expect and what to buy.
