Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

NO I do not think that will work at all or last very long I know on some of these Dometic's if the hinge is broken the entire door has to be replaced. I have seen owners try to glue them and that repair does not work or if it does not very long. IF you can get me the model of the Dometic I can see if a hinge is available or if the door does need to be replaced.

Normally the hinge is a plastic material and one thing that may work for you is JB weld. That would hold up better then gorilla or super glue, once again if you can get me the model of the Dometic I can see if there is a hinge kit...

OK... Let me check....

Think there is click HERE and have a look not sure which hinge you need but it is a parts break down, if you see the part it is obtainable and the good news is this is a fairly newer model so most any RV store should be able to get it for you. Looks like that hinge screws in some of the Dometics are only glued into place and when they break the hinge can not be replaced. So this should help you out with part numbers.

Hope this helps you out, if you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me...
