Leaving Rear Door Open?
 
I find it handy to leave the rear door open when camping. I turn the interior light off so I don't drain the battery. Is this okay for the rear door or could it sag the door hinges over time?

I leave mine open quite a bit to let the fridge get some air but not overnight. So far it's been fine. I changed all my interior lights to led so no issue if I forget to turn them off, which I've done often :o

Not sure about the older generation Pajeros but the gen 4, at least with the NX, all interior lights turn off after 30 minutes, whether manully turned on or automatically turned on with door.

Yeah same, I open up the back during the day to cool down the interior which helps save power for the fridge. Just have to watch out for the wind catching the huge rear door.

I doubt any major sag would occur in my opinion.

Also if leaving a door open the interior lights will go out after ar9und 20 minutes or so in case you do forget.

The metal check strap on the bottom of the door can lock the door open, so if a large gust of wind comes in it won't slam the door closed.

Unless the gust is too big and breaks the poorly designed mechanism which MM tend to then argue isn't a warranted item.
