The ramp door on my rig has been nothing but trouble from Day One ! Serious ‘design’ flaws as far as I’m concerned.
A door of this size and weight should be electrically/hydraulically operated !!!
The first problem with this door is that it is TOO BIG and TOO HEAVY and I couldn’t close it by myself. I blogged about all that HERE.
So I had a winch installed to solve that problem.
More problems occurred this past Summer. Actually it started last February. The hinge is bolted to the floor of the rig on one side and the other side is ‘bolted’ to the bottom of the door. That part started to come apart.
By June it had gotten worse – a lot worse !!
The ‘bolts’ holding it had started to come out….
And look where it was by July !!!
And by August two screws had completely fallen out…
Yes, Those are the “bolts” that are supposed to be holding this massive door to the hinge !!
