On my 2014 Freedom the wind caught the side access door when I opened it and blew it open so much that it broke the door stop hinge (not sure if this is what it is called) that is located at the bottom of the door.

I'd appreciate hearing suggestions of where I can find a replacement for this hinge.

Thank You!
JJ

I didn't bother to replace it when the same thing happened to my 2015. The door was only held open at 45 deg. anyway. I replaced it with a JR Products 10335 Spring Loaded Door Holder - 2" from Amazon. Cost $14.85 but is very solid aluminum and holds the door flat against the body.

Thanks so much, Chris!

I'm going to do the same. . . just replace with the part that you shared.

I appreciate your help!
Safe Travels,
JJ

Hello! I was able to have the same type of door stop installed at a RV service center in Clearwater.
Thanks so much for your help!

I used a magnetic door stop. They are available at home stores. Here's one from Home Depot:
