Outdoor kitchen door leak - needs replacing

We recently purchased a used 2014 Sunset Trail Reserve with an outdoor kitchen. The piston/bracket that attaches the door to the trailer broke away from the door, leading us to discover that the door has had water damage (it's very soft/rotted). I haven't been able to find a replacement door so far. The ones I found are not the correct size. Does anyone have a link to a place to order a replacement?

You could try this place. They custom build doors. https://www.rvpartsnation.com/rv-ext...unded-corners/

My first go to would be a fiberglass fabrication company. They may be able to take the skins off the inside/outside of the kitchen door and laminate it to some new stock.

If that doesn't work Crossroads/Thor/??? may have a replacement door but you will have to replace the decals if wanted.

Custom made will require the door to be fiber glassed and could run into a few dollars.

Can you post a picture of the damaged area? Someone may be able to give you some info on how to fix it.

I had the same problem. Factory installed with too much tension on the struts. After several attempts to keep them from tearing off I lowered the angle of the open door. Measure the length of the open strut and keep them at both the same length and reattach struts. At the correct position they will pivot instead of ripping strut off. Good luck.

I have a 2014 ST Reserve 26RB that had the same problem. Taking my cue from my boating days I drilled holes in a grid in the inner door laminate, then sprayed low expansion foam into the void. I clamped a piece of ply over both sides to keep the door from bulging as the foam cured. Instead of foam, in the area of the locks and gas lift mounts I injected West epoxy so it will have strength and take screws. It worked. To slow the leaking of the piano hinge I taped the hinge, then clear siliconed a "gutter" above it. The tape keeps it out ofvthe hinge while curing. It's enough to redirect the sheet water. Even in heavy rains the kitchen is dry now and the door works well.
