Ultra Lite entry door friction hinge problems.

Anybody else having problems with the newer Rockwood entry door friction hinges binding and making loud noises? I have lubricated them but it does not help.

I'm told by Forest River you cannot replace the hinges and the entire door and frame has to be replaced if the friction hinge binds up.

There's already a long thread going about these hinges:

Entry door friction hinge binding.

My 2016 TracerAir has the friction hinges system. The lower screen door hinge pin broke on mine and the entire door and frame had to be replaced.
