THOR #8337
Cabinet door adjustment

I have a 2017 Chateau 28z class 3 motor home
The doors on the cabinets above the sofa keep opening up when traveling
How do I adjust them?

If they are opposing doors (Latches in the centers, and hinges to the outsides): why not not put a wrap of velcro tape around them when you're traveling?
That's what I did with my Outlaw.

Call Thor and get the upgraded parts. They replaced all of mine at the factory under warranty when I was in Wakarusa. I will post a picture in this thread of the "new ones" later.

well is it the Lach mechanism broke or some other problem. I replaced two of mine so far. Easy fix and cheap.

See if it looks like this below. I just replace the one side that is broken (usually the spring inside messes up or breaks). Direct replacement.

Or yours could be out of alinement.

They are over-center spring loaded - thus non adjustable. I would recommend the hinges be replaced with overhead bin hinges from Rockler

No they are adjustable. You have to un- screw them ... move left or right or forward / rearward...then rescrew them in the correct location.

When I replaced two them you can see where the factory had like 3 or 4 trys before they got them "Close enough". One of mine had the wood cracked around the screws so I had to replace the wood so I would get it to work correctly.

But your right...the latch itself CANNOT be adjusted.
