Outside kitchen door

Just purchased a 2017 Miramar 34.4. Outside kitchen door opened as we were leaving a park. Ours does not have a locking latch. Can a locking latch be purchased? Can the current latch be adjusted?

We also have a 34.4, 2016, but it DOES have a locking latch. I wonder if this is a manufacturer error. I suggest calling Thor and having them send you a replacement.

You can adjust the catch on the motorhome. If the door popped open, a locking latch would not prevent this. Evidently the torque of the RV as you began to move caused the latch to release from the catch. You can loosen the 2 screws holding the catch in place and slide the catch as necessary to tighten the latching mechanism.

As a side note, I always walk around my coach and push each latch to make sure it is fully engaged, as my final step before taking off anywhere.

I agree... "Latched & Locked"!
