Ron, A small hint that may help some other Alpine owners. We have a 34' 2005 Alpine with two pocket doors which immediately slammed shut when we drove out of the dealers parking lot when the unit was new. Waiting for the dealer and Alpine with a solution to no avail I took one of my wifes belts which was a clear plastic(I hated the d*** thing) and cut it long enough to put snaps in it. It stretches around the double pocket doors in the bedroom. Screwed the mating snaps into the bulkheads and it goes around both doors and solves the problem. The forward door is a single door with no provision to use a strap. I purchased a small stainless steel barrel bolt and mounted it to the bulkead to the rear of the door opening.I trashed the other piece of the barrel bolt and made a square stainless plate the size of the width of the door, drilled a countersunk hole in it and mounted it to the door so the barrel bolt would go in front of it. The door has enough tension pushed back to hold it tight with no rattle. Ron, if you need pictures of this I will be glad to provide them. I think most people with this problem will understand it.

Ted- I'd like to see photos of your solution to the forward door problem. I had my bedroom door slam closed (?) once and broke several of the top hangars. I'm extra careful now making sure the doors are locked in place before getting underway.

Thanks, Rick
