Windsong/ Georgetown side doors?
On my windsong some of my side compartment doors on open horizontal to the ground (90 degrees) and some open past it to around 145 degrees. Is this normal or did the previos owner install the incorrect shocks?

Sounds like the closures may have been replaced with shorter than original pieces. Do any look newer than others? My coach has the doors with the hinges on the side so they open similar to a car door. The only door that opens horizontally is the generator access door. That opens a little past 90 degrees because the slide-out to the bedroom is just above.

Check out the pictures on page 7. This shows the doors in a open position. I originally thought the doors opened farther, almost straight up. It looks like past 90 degrees is normal so your 135 degrees is pretty close to what these look to be.

Ya know, I didn't even think about the whole slide thing. I guess they can't open any further since they would hit. Thanks for the input, it's greatly appreciated.
