Does anyone have any info on the front door hinge mine is showing wear its starting to hit at the bottom of the frame
cant find were to buy one its putting wear on the lock now
for a 1992 breakaway
Had/having the same issue on my Breakaway. I fabricated some shims out of aluminum flat stock cut to fit under the hinge where it mounts to the door frame. I had to experiment with different thicknesses. Mounted the shims at the bottom two hinges which "kicked-out" the door enough to keep it from dragging on the bottom of the door frame. Also did a little fine-tuning with a file on the bottom edge of the door. Might want to go with some longer screws to give you a better bite into the inner wood framing of the door.
I had to completely rebuild my door after the bottom fell off and I discovered upon disassembly that the wooden framing attached to the metal frame was 80% rotted away. One of these days the door is coming off again and I'm going to install one continuous hinge on the door.
If there is any interest I can post some pictures of what the inner framing(metal frame and the attached wood) of the entry door looks like with the outer aluminum skin removed.

I used lock washer and cut a piece out of it to snap it over the hinge pin. Installed about 6 of them. Has worked for 9 years so far. If I found a new hinge I would replace the current one.
