    Hampton HI-300 door gasket replacement

    I am going on my 5th year with my HI-300. I am wondering if it's getting time to replace the door gasket. In my 3rd season I did the dollar bill test and found a poor seal near the hinge side (IIRC). I removed a washer from the latch assembly as shown in the manual and that fixed things up...
