Hi all,
I have a 2000 model oakwood doublewide. It has the storm door built into the entry door, i think they call it a combo door..? anyways, the hinges for the storm door are worn out and the door has dropped a few inches because of this. I cant find these hinges anywhere and dont know what to do.. anyone know where i could find them? Here is a pic of them

You may be able to find a Piano hinge that would fit, may need 2 depending on the length. Check with a full service hardware store the may have both a piano or the original type hinge. Take as accurate measurement as possible to give you the best available options as well as the old one.

There are Natural Aluminum Finish storm door hinge for wood or metal screen or storm doors with
full or half mortise application while one leaf is swagged to lessen the gap between the door and frame.

Is the storm door frame not screwed to the outside of the door jamb?

I think it is but it also has a flange around the perimeter that has screws all around it holding the whole combo door assembly to the house..
