I was there this summer but I don't want oem.

When using the door it lays flat against the door letting the outer door slide past it. When ready to travel just close the doors and flip the bottom up. Keeps the doors from opening.

I'd LOVE to replace those doors with luvered dark cherry doors....Any body ave any suggestions where to look?
This is what I've been looking for but look at their other one.

To change doors just get them at a DIY store. Order the size and style, change the tracks. Sounds simple. Did the reverse in my house. Before doing it, consider the change in space with bi fold open. I don't think I have space and the mirrors enlarge the room.

Someone on here suggested using adjustable shower rods (40 to 70 inches) to lay in the tracks at the bottom while traveling. I got mine at Wal-Mart, about $7.95 I think. They work great!

I did similar but used a piece of 1X2 wood and painted it white. My wife puts it in place when we travel and removes it when we get where we are going. Not much of a problem but good latches would be a better idea.

Oh yeah, I believe I've got the scars from doing the same.

The plastic latch is a torture device. Bleed every time I load or unload the aft closet. Camping world has the replacement latch you need.

We had same problem with our triple sliders ! Problem solved with a patio door slider pin, got at Home Depot ! There about 3 in long with a metal shaft and pull cap ! Just drilled a 1/4 hole in metal track, and pin slips in place. Drilled holes about 3/4 in from slider! Took 3 to do ours! They also have a 4 inch chain attached to the pin cap ! You vision a 3in pin with a1/2 round cap with a chain , that's screwed to inside or outside of slider frame ! There located in the slider door / window assoc. section cost about 3.99 Ours are. 13 years old. Pin door with other stuff before leaving/ in do when your at your site. No rattles either . These were used years ago on metal sliders as a safety device, drilled into center of slider frame, catching both inside and outside doors from being jemmied! Good luck

Ever thought of rounding off the pointed corners with a file? Ya know the old saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?"

A previous poster mentioned replacing mirror doors with louvered wood doors. You should be able to find them at home depot or other lumber outlet. I am considering that myself. I wi repost after doing some research and planning.

We have two sliding doors in the bedroom and installed the Burglar Bar on one, took off the crappy OEM metal latches. While the Burglar Bar stays installed (double stick tape) to the door/mirror, we only use it when we are going to move the coach, which makes it easy to open the doors while parked.

Here is a video of how it works in an RV https://youtu.be/qaYaAtMWp2Q
