I found some hinges at home depot that match pretty cose, they are self closing, but don't have the spring to keep the over head doors open..and don't keep the doors closed as tight... I guess one could add the struts to the side...but I would rather replace them with the original design... I got lazy and never ordered them when I found them on the BF web site... there is no name on the ORG hinge.... any help here would be appreciated...also...any help to identify the hinge....there has to be some one that has these some where...

I wonder if you took a picture and sent it to your local RV dealer or even one that is not local and let them track it down for you. I know i have used Motorhomes of Texas to get parts in the past for my Foretravel and they were a BF dealer as well.

bf2coolrig,

Is this what you are looking for? Found it on the site WardPAW referenced:

http://www.rvlocksandmore.com/InsideRV/Hinges/H-S2420-Z

Our 2017 Spirit doesn’t have this hinge design, but it sure looks like what our 2006 24RB had. When we traded in our 2006 we gave all our old hinge replacements (we had ordered several, as they tended to break) back to Born Free to give to whoever bought our old unit.

The hinge strut part no. H-HS100-SN. $3.99 each. + shipping

The part was a hinge strut-satin nickel.

Yup, part H-HS100-SN does look like what we had, so ignore my previous post and use WardPAW’s latest one, instead. Nice find. Those hinges really tended to break.

Here is a thread that also mentions how to repair broken hinges:

Surprised they don't offer them in brass color, as those in my 2004 BFT were brass color.

Does anybody know where I can get a replacement exterior clearance LED light for a 2009 BF built for 2? It is one of the Exterior orange lights on the top of the front cab above the bed. I cant find that style of light any place on the internet.
