I like to keep our entrance door open using the screen door for ventilation. Once the wind comes up I have to close the door to keep it from being blown too far to the open position and damaging the hinges. Has anyone come up with a door stop or some other device to keep the door from being damaged by high wind?

FYI....the 2006's have an "indent" built into the hinge that keeps the door open.

I use one of those rubber bungy type ball device for holding my door open. You pull the ball and place it in to a small ball socket fitting that comes with ball bungy when you buy it.
Got mine at RV supply house but here is a picture of it.

Though my Horizon KD seems to have a detent to hold the door open, I am really uncomfortable leaving the door open in the wind. I've been thinking of either some sort of bungee attached at the top of the door or perhaps a tempoary brace that could be placed between the door and the side mirror.

I did leave mine open and a stong gust sprung the hindge , witch was then hard to close. But thank god it happened a few weeks before my factory visit so they fixed it with the newer version witch seems to have a stronger way of limiting the past 90 degree open angle. From now on I will try not to leave it open if there is any sign of wind or just plain open a window instead!

When I go to this web site I get a picture of the product, but, I get nothing that will enable me to place an order. Can anyone help? By the way, has anybody tried this product?

LK23: If you look at the inside door frame you will see a flat hinged metal stock bolted to the inside frame. The metal stock is hinged and is actually welded to the door skin. If you remove the inside trim to the entry door you will see that the center flat metal piece has a cam type of adjustment. Adjust the bolt and this will put pressure on the flat stock and creates a pressure point and stop of sort for the door. Next time you are at a Winnebago dealer open several doors on diesels. Many cams are not adjusted tight enough, some are and you can tell the difference. I like the Monaco hinged folding limiting metal stock on the top of their door. Great idea by Monaco. For now I'm going to purchase the suction cup gizmo...
