Those door struts didn't show up until a few years ago.
Lots of RVs have done fine without them.
I don't think that FR hybrids had them until around 2010.

So my salesman back in April 2015 soon after was promoted to Parts/Service Manager. Today I heard back from him and he has again been promoted to Sales Manager and is forwarding my information and issue over to one of the Service managers. Together they are going to work on getting this taken care of and covered for me. Hope they can!!!

As many of you have mentioned, it pays to go through a good dealer!

Well it was worth a few phones calls and emails but in the end, no warranty is going to cover this. Service manager called his main contact at the warranty company trying to pull a favor but got shut down.

Thinking the idea of a square metal plate on the outside and inside with nut and bolts going all the way through should work. i can fix fiberglass, but the plate along with some silicone will hide and seal the crack. It sucks, cuz i will see it all the time and now that crack is back there but i am not about to pay the cost to replace the door.

I guess i have a project this weekend before my next trip! i will send pics when its done.

For once in my life I made a plan to fix something and it went the way I wanted. That never happens. Well I did want a washer on the back but my drills were a bit crooked so I didn't have room but should be fine. Best part is this didn't cost a dime. Had the caulk and the perfect size bolts/nuts in my box of misc spare parts and things. Lock nuts would have been better, might change later, but the Silicon should keep them in place
