Plastic access doors

Is the door coming open and then breaking the hinge? We started replacing the plastic "thumb turn" with metal ones. I think over time the plastic ones give more and can let the door open, the metal holds better.

Yes that’s exactly what is happening. I’ve managed to temporarily fix a couple of them. I guess the fix is to order the doors with the metal thumb turn. You wouldn’t happen to have a picture of what was fixed?

Mr Clemens I just realized what you were talking about and it’s not the thumb turn it’s the hinge that goes in the frame. When I get back to my motorhome I’ll post a pic of what I’m referring to.

He knows what your talking about. He thought that maybe the door was coming open going down the road because of the plastic latch and the hinges were breaking because the door was flapping in the breeze.
