Great advice.

I just replace the hinge on mine. I think it is caused by frame flexing when traveling because it started when I hit a particularly nasty set of potholes on a highway. The same incident also caused the shelf the microwave sits on to come loose in the back. That area is the most prone to frame flexing because of the door.

I had the dealer do it because it was there for the bubble window replacement.


I personally don't see how a less than level trailer could cause it because the camper doesn't need to be level for that line to be straight. It is not like lifting the roof on pop ups.

Thanks Pooniel, good to know. I almost always level the trailer first anyway, so I was at a loss to explain how it happened. I figured I must not have leveled it and perhaps it was really sensitive to leveling. Besides, we just haven't been in any crazy sites that aren't pretty close to level anyway.

Pull the drawer under the microwave and check for damage to the shelf attachment to the side wall.
