Help. We have a 2010 Spirit Deluxe. The newest problem is that the cabinet and bathroom doors have bounced off their hinges. There is a good possibility that this happened because they were not properly secured while we were driving. Any ideas on how to fix them? I know the trick about putting a toothpick in the hole but this seems like a temporary fix at best. Anyone have any better suggestions? Thanks, Charli

Some pictures of what happened would be helpful to see what you are actually referring to. While it's not uncommon for cabinets to "unlatch" themselves going down the road, I have never heard of the bathroom door coming off though.

Yea...I agree with Greg....very uncommon problem with the bathroom door...never heard of it before.  As for the cabinets....the matchstick trick does work....I had to do that for a couple of cabinets....never had one open after thousands and thousands of miles.

Generally, I use wooden matches for loose screws, but steel wool probably works better.
