RV Entrance Door Friction Hinge? Love or Hate?
In this video, I attempt to install an aftermarket Lippert friction hinge onto my Keystone Cougar fifth-wheel trailer's entrance door. Unfortunately, the hinge turns out to be incompatible with my particular Challenger brand model of door. I discover the Lippert hinge is a little smaller, so it won't fit flush.
Anyway, I was curious and decided to take the hinge apart and try and figure out how it actually works. I didn't find anything special inside, so I assume it's just press-fit to a predetermined pressure. I did notice it contains a small amount of what looks like graphite grease.
Based on some earlier feedback I received on friction hinges there seem to be people that either love or hate them. From what I gather most are referring to OEM installations. So in the video, I ask folks to leave feedback in the YouTube comment section below.
