I am the owner of a 1995 Excella 1000 30 footer. The Dometic Model RM3807 door came off in my wife's hand and she caught it and held it until I could grab it. The bad part of this experience is that she had just had multiple surgeries.
I have owned Airstreams since the early 70's, my first being a 1966
30 foot Overlander. The design of the Dometic doors hinge pin holes are pathetic. Dometics does not have replacement doors for the RM3807. Their fix is a joke, I have their sheet metal brace. I was going to reinforce their fix with epoxy and remachine the pin holes. It was either that or get a new refrigerator. Other than the weak door pin holes, the refrigerator/freezer works fine and after all these years I know how to service them. As I recall, their current refrigerator pin holes are just as bad.
Today I went to assist a neighbor with their new to them, older 70's motorhome. While working on their furnace, I noticed their old Dometic Refrigerator. I never had a problem with the old metal, aluminum, framed doors falling off. I believe I can rebuild the doors to match the quality and strenght of the old models.
I will go to trailer tonight, and do some meaurements. If their is enough clearance, I think I can fabricate a simple and permanent fix.
I will keep you informed.
This is my first post. I have spent most of my time here reviewing all the good information available. With an open mind, you can learn anything as long as it doesnot fall out the other side.
