There were 2 types. Type 1 locked the door and you had to use the door handle to release it. Type 2 used a spring that could be overcome by pulling the door hard. Check this to see what you have.

Dennis,

PTL will likely want to know the year of your coach, and possibly the number of screws holding the mounting plate to the top of the door frame. Then they should know what you need. Probably around $100-125, and relatively easy to install.

Take the # off the door and call PTL Engineering. They will provide you with the correct product to fix your door. I changed mine when a mechanic fixing something else forced the door and bent that part. Also I just replaced the rubber seal around the screen door and I have eliminated the wind noise I occasionally experienced.

Have you looked at what is causing your problems? The mechanism is fairly simple, when the wind caught my door it bent the locking cam shaft, I was able to straighten it and all is well. Just be sure to keep it well greased, at the top of the door it ALWAYS gets wet and dirty causing it to jam/stick.

The rubber seal is shown on PTL's web site and sold by the foot. The latch side is different from the other sides. I called them and they helped me order the correct seals. You need to measure the door and order the correct amount. The old rubber pulls off and the new snaps on the edge of the door. Use automotive rubber sealant (any NAPA store) to attach the corners.
