I recall the non GFI RV outlets (all the others) are a bit strange when compared to conventional outlets you buy at a home improvement center.  I would think it is best to replace all outlets and use the screw terminals, not the push-in blade features.  But maybe you will also need an outlet box.  I forget exactly what's there, just recalling it's not house-standard.

They are standard "shallow box" outlets.   Just not as thick front to back so they fit inside shallow outlet boxes.

When reinforcing one door, is there a benefit to installing the other piece up top to reinforce it as well?  Or is it a throw-away/give-away/sell-on-ebay component?

2 pieces, one for the bottom of each door.  Or so it seems, but in any event...of course the top hinge takes stress.   Consider a loaded door that is open, but instead of the hinges you stick your finger in the top.   I guarantee you it's going to pull away at the top and towards you at the bottom.

Thank you so much Jim for your generosity but I just bought a pair of kits HERE for $49 to reinforce both doors.  I'll just sell what I don't use on ebay to recover some of the cost to keep my investment under control as usual.

Ron,

It can be put on the top of the door, when speaking with Norcold they say you can use it for top and bottom.  I can't see a purpose for using it on top since you would be putting it on the top of the plastic portion of the hinge that would be carrying no weight.  It might reinforce the metal post portion of the hinge but that is not what is breaking on these doors.  It probably wouldn't hurt but I do not know if it would affect the closing of the door since we ony installed it on the bottom hinge.

I have talked to Norcold three different times and got different answers each time.  The documentation that came with the kit says "retrofit hinge-left", "retrofit hinge-right".

I just checked my door and the bottom plate that is attached to the refriderator is metal. The part attached to the door is plastic. When I had to replace the hing on my other PC, Norcold told me only some of the N621 models have the breaking hing problem. If I was worried about it, I would get my model ans serial numbers and call Norcold or get on their website and chat with them before getting new parts. Just me.

Sue,
Looking at our freezer door, the hinge is on the right. We would love to have that extra part.

Ron,

Yes, they are mirror images, you get a right hand swing and a left hand swing.  Two kits are needed if you want to do the freezer door.  I do not put anything heavy on the freezer door so chose not do reinforce that hinge.  We are hoping George and Judi can use our extra one for their feezer door.  I think their door swings the opposite of ours.
