Any hint on how to get started would be a big help.
Thanks so much,
I don't have a picture(can post later though)
But mine broke where the strap mounts with 2 screws to the trailer frame. So what I did was remove the broken piece from the frame, then attach the new hinge to the strap using small nuts and bolts (drilling two holes in the plastic is easy.)
Last step is take those two previously removed screws and attach the hinge to the frame. Works great!
I'll post a pic later when I get to the camper if no one else finds one before!
