New Entrance Door Lock

Anyone replace the flimsy entrance door lock assembly? The part where you hold on to to close the door is breaking. I cna add some screws but I dont think the door has anything to screw into, and will just pull out. Any Ideas?

I just Emailed RV Lock about getting a new interior handle. Will let you know.

In my case the replacement was metal rather than plastic & much more substantial in weight.

I, as well as many others have installed this:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

on the screen door and use it to close the door assembly.

Also, many people have replaced their door lock assembly as Trimark made a crappy one where the latch tended to break and not allow you to open the door.

I checked RVLock.com and ordered a new inner handle. I'll give it another try.

RVLock.com is having a 40% off sale on on Friday November 24th from midnight to noon. It is a short, but nice sale. The Webcode is BLCKFRDAY17

I just got an email about it if anyone is thinking of upgrading or buying one of their locks.

I would love to have one of the RVlock keyless lock/latches on my Challenger, but reading the reviews makes me worry the install is beyond my meager skills.

We installed this handle also. Not only did it make the door easier to open and close, but also seemed to make the door more "stable"

Does anyone know how thick the baggage doors are?

Looking for the size-thickness of the side doors, genny door and docking station door if you know the size.

Choices are more then 1"
Less then 1"
1"

Mike in AZ,
I put one of the RVLocks on my last '05--it was an easy install. Not sure about a MH door.
The lock worked well.
