The pins on that flapper aren't strong enough to last a bad windstorm. In fact, when I bought a replacement assembly at our local RV place the flapper pins were already broke from the trip from the manufacturer. I've found that when spares are readily available at parts places it's an indication of a problem/issue with that part!

I took off the complete assembly and replaced it with a bulletproof one that opens and closes using an awning pull rod. I'm fortunate in that our RW isn't painted and the replacement assembly was white.

I did have to buy an awning pull rod though!

Way to go you 2! That's the joy of owning an rv, building it better, stronger, if you can't figure some of these things out on your own you had best not own one or it will spend a lot of time in the shop.

Nice fix - just replaced my flap but if it goes again I'm going with yours.
