We have a damaged propane compartment door on a 2007 cf30sk that I want to repair. I have read somewhere that the skin of the door can be replaced. When I contacted a distributor for the filon material they said the cost is $74.00 per lineal foot of 8.5' wide sheeting plus shipping. Since the door is about 28 x 28 this will result in a lot of expensive waste.



Does anyone have experience repairing or replacing these doors. I can buy a replacement door from Sheila @ Crossroads for about $200. I was hoping to avoid this much expense if possible.

If it is just the outer skin ( the doors are two layers of skin with a foam core) then you can repair it with a standard fiberglass repair kit and then repaint. The only downside is that the repaired section will be very smooth and will look somewhat different than the filon panels surrounding it. You can offset this somewhat by glazing the entire panel of the door so that it will be smooth and the repaired spot would be less noticeable.

I would talk to a couple of dealers. They may have a tech who can do a repair for you or can send you to a location that can. You might also talk to a couple of boat repair dealers. If all else fails, I would spend the $200 and get a door I know will match. My 2 cents.

thanks for the input - I have decided to live with the damage until my return from spring training trip. That way I'm not under the gun - she won't look preety but she will be functional.
