Voltage 3815 Ramp Door by MORryde

Looking at a Voltage 3815 toy hauler. Seeing lots of comments concerning Lippert porch / ramp doors failures.
Is however that later models of Voltage TH have switched to Ramp Door by MORryde. Any known failures with Morryde?

About one year on mine and love it. Not as much use as I would like but to be able to set up the deck by yourself because of the way the springs take the weight off the door is great.

Just remember to close the garage door leave the side door open so you donít have a vacuum that prevents the door from closing.

Where are you seeing the comments about Lippert ramp failures? I've never seen one.

That being said, I had to have my 3950's Lippert ramp replaced within the first year. 7 years on the replacement without problem.

Joe,This was from the Heartland/Cyclone users forum. Keystone also seem to have issues with the Lippert ramps as well. A lot seem to be moisture related that is causing the wood to delaminate and cracking at the hinge or center from motorcycles.

Joe,
Here is from a Heartland / Cyclone users group but the issues of the Lippert ramps are also mentioned on other RV users groups. It seems that the main issue is moisture getting in and then delaminating the plywood as well as cracks at the hinge location as well as the center of the ramp from motorcycles.

Here is a link above from the Heartland//Cyclone users group. Other toy haulers seem to have some of the same issues.
To me the main issue is moisture is getting in and thus delaminating the plywood. Also issues of the plywood cracking at the hinges as well as cracking in the center were motorcycles go up the ramp.

When we bought our new 3970 last year one of the first things i did is caulk the seem on the inside of the door along the edge of the frame work so moisture would not penetrate the door in case the door was left open and it rained or loading a wet utv and water dripping on the ramp, oh btw i had to caulk some areas on the roof as well poor job done by Keystone

RDJ,
That was wise of you to caulk the patio / ramp. It appears that the rubberized surface gives the owners an illusion of being water resistant.

It was this photo after 9 months light use that caused Voltage to replace my ramp.
