Broken shower door.

2001 LY XL390 Moved coach during repairs, had not latched shower door. Lower door pivot had probably normal 12 years of wear/corrosion, but unlatched, swing free, heavy door, ... The bang concerned me. The crash of tempered glass sickened me.

Need lower pivot and or door. Frame is fine and will just use lexan if needed. The pivot has been surprisingly difficult to locate.

Have you had success with finding lower pivot and replacement glass?

Great service from Shower Enclosures of America. Rushed me pivots. Have yet to repair. And it is winter in SW Ohio.
Had coach in shop over last month. Had every system on chassis serviced. Synthetic lubes in all systems, suspension air bags were badly dry rotted, changed all filters ect. Should be good for ten years. (with proper maintenance)
Real expensive. Everything costs more with a Freightliner part #.

Sounds like you are all set for the up coming season. Peace of mind can sometimes be a little expensive, but worth every penny.

Everything on chassis checked, inspected or serviced. Tires look good for season but will keep close watch.
