Seriously, put some red Locktite on the top of it and let it dry over night....problem solved.

Wow.. Just started seeing the "creeping hinge pin" on last trip.. So I will clean then Blue Loctite.. Hope that works... Red has always been a lot harder on the attaching parts IMHO.

Peace

Just returned from a 5000 mile trip. Loctite didn't work on the bottom pin. Re-punching didn't work either. I ordered my slotted pins today.

For those with dropped doors, get several 1/4" "e-clips" and insert on the load bearing surface sides of the hinge halves until the door height is restored. Works very well.

Looks like our 2005 Classic 30 must have had this problem.

There is clear evidence that the previous owner - or his/her dealer - gave it the old centre punch treatment, and it has been fine during the last four years that we have owned it !
