I had to have the door replaced from the pocket that separates the kitchen area from the trailer. A screw or nail that was between the walls protruded enough in the pocket to gouge the wood on the door as it slid closed. This occurred the first year I owned the trailer. I have no idea how they got to the metal that was producing the scratch. I got a brand new door to boot. No evidence on how they fixed this.

My solution was to remove the pocket door entirely. I then enlarged the door opening by about 6". I like the extra space and we use a curtain. It lightened up the trailer too. That door had a mirror on it and weighed a ton.

Thank you all for your help!!! Great tips!! Looks like I have a trip to the hardware store for a 1x2, gorilla clue, silicon, extensions and hex screws, plus a marine deck plate.

What a hassel - all over a lousy wood screw that Airstream could have fixed years ago.

Thanks, again, to each of you for taking time out of your day to help give some great tips and advice.

Greatly appreciated.
