Why couldn't they use a stainless steel piano hinge instead of that crappy aluminum arrangement? They could install a small aluminum gutter above the piano hinge. I had a door replacement done on my 2012 surveyor sport 295 and cringed every time I opened the door and heard it popping. We now have a 2014 surveyor select 305 that I assumed had surely had the problem rectified but is sounding to NOT be the case. Whiles dealer took care of the problem before under warranty... It still cost 180 dollars in fuel cost since my dealer is 600 miles away round trip. Now with the heavier trailer and diesel being so much more expensive... It will cost more this go round if it happens for a problem that has had years to be redesigned.
