CJ

Most likely the foam did not cure - or fill correctly allowing pockets of air and eventually will break due to low strength in those areas

This would explain why the edges of the plywood sheets are transferring thru the outside "gel coat finish" which (at least on ours) is painted.It does appear to flex when I run the electric golf cart on it.

Lippert makes these doors for Forest River (and probably everybody else). My toyhauler door was spongy along the hinge line. It looked like the hinges were going to push through. I sent pictures to Lippert. They said it was water damage (one of the side pieces was loose on the door, i.e., not sealed) and replaced the door.

This pic shows where the side piece was moving when the door latch was operated.


Hinges are sinking into door


Hard to see - in the corner the flooor/door covering is bubbling up

It Doesn't appear to have any plywood in them . nothing but composite and Styrofoam and some fiberglass on the out side

X-Ray photos of non-party deck door

Per the XLR GM there is no wood in the ramp door.

Wonder if that is a recent change.
