2020 View 24D Coach Door

Opening/closing of coach door has become harder to open and close and it will creak/pop.
I talked to Winnabago customer care about this issue. Evidently Lippert Ind. furnishes door but buys it from a third party. That third party used aluminum spacers on each of the three hinges and these spacers may not be compatible with the hinge itself which is resulting in stiffness/binding when opening/closing of door.

Winnabago says there will NOT be any recall/service campaign on this issue.
The Winnabago tech is checking with their parts dept. if replacement hinges are available for me to install.

Has any one else experienced this coach door issue?

I'm a fairly new owner (22D). I've been studying this coach and long term issues we may both encounter. This is one of them.

It is a known problem with material incompatibility in the hinges. A galvanic corrosion problem. There is only one solution. You have to service these hinges about every six months with anti-seize lubrication. One hinge at a time. I hope you can get them out.

Here is a pretty good description of the problem and a way to maintain the hinges:

The part you want starts at 3:30.

And...here is the Lippert recommended procedure for lubrication of hinges:

We've had our 2021 View 24D since June of 2020 and haven't had any issues with the hinges or done any lubrication (unless Lichtsinn does that as part of their annual maintenance).

The only issue we've had with the entry door is with the lock mechanism. We've had it break twice due to plastic pieces in the lock mechanism breaking off. The lock is at great risk of breaking if anyone attempts to open the door while someone else is also trying to open it from the other side OR if the automatic locking mechanism runs simultaneously.

I am having this issue with my 2022 View 24d. Did you get this resolved? Was the lubrication suggested by Lippert the solution?

Lubrication didn’t help so I had the one causing my issue replaced. Problem solved

I just got a used 2020 view. Same problem. Bottom hinge. I’m trying to get it off but does not want to come off from the frame of the door. Looks like they glued or used a strong tape on back side. Did you have this issue.

I was able to use a 1 inch putty knife and a hammer to get the door hinge off the door frame without any damage. They really use some strong adhesive. Since the putty knife was not quite long enough I did use a baby crow bar for the rest. Waiting on new hinge. Hopefully it is the whole thing. Thanks for everyone's input.

Hi - Does anyone have any theories as to why some doors are affected, and others seem to be fine?

We've got a '21 View, and to my knowledge, the door seems to be working as if it was new. Or, am I kidding myself? A problem is just lurking around the corner?

Initially I was thinking that the manufacturer likely replaced the aluminum hinges with something more compatible with the hinge shaft, but I see newer rigs are seeing the same problem...

Thanks,

Cheers

We've been talking to La Mesa RV for about 2 months trying to get replacement hinges. They got the top and bottom within a couple of weeks, as they estimated, but the middle hinge is on backorder until "early September", so we don't have any chance of getting our door fixed until then. This has greatly impacted our ability to enjoy/use our RV.

I would say that the reason that some see this issue within weeks, others within months, and others within years is due to their local climate and conditions. Whether it is kept indoors, humidity levels, sun, etc.

I'm worried that these hinges are going to be increasingly hard to find, potentially requiring a complete door retrofit in the future.
