Does any know what would work to repair a puncture in the door. Our door was caught by the wind and slammed against the storage door clip which was open and punctured the door. It did not puncture all the way through. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Steve,
You might consider using caulk to fill in the hole. Being on the outside makes it tough to look right. I will give it some thought and see what others come up with.

Sounds like some Bondo (2 part auto body filler) & a nice "no smoking" decal.

You might think I am being a wise guy, but my father did it to one of his rigs and you could not tell.

Well I would have to agree with Tdharley, since the door is metal a little bondo and paint will probably hide the hole. You may need to get some matching paint from Heartland or the door manufacturer and find a body shop willing to spray the entire door so that it all matches.

Hey Guy's:
I thought that the door was fiberglass on the outside. Am I wrong to think that ?

If i am not mistaken the outside panel is aluminum. I do not have my unit close to take a look but the doors are all from a sub manufacturer and I do not think they are fiberglas. I will check into it and get an answer for us guys who just have to know.

I would think with the texture its fiberglass, no gelcoat. I really think alum. is just a little bit smoother. :)

the door skin would be called filon. It is thin fiberglass covered with gelcoat that is also thin.

also you should be able to get a skin from Heatland for the door
