Can't get to my Beer...

My outside kitchen door lock is broken on my 2015 Miramar 34.2 and I can't open the door. Anyone have any suggestions to open the door? The handle just lifts up with no pressure like there's no connection at all... so I can't get my beer out!!!

Any help is appreciated,
Moon

This sounds serious........You're sure you haven't had too many beers already and you unlocked the door?

Maybe a locksmith?
I good criminal could get you in.....might damage the door though.

Good luck!

Called a Locksmith and he said he really couldn't help me with this. So now I may have to resort to a crowbar and the wife is no longer talking to me because her blender is also in the outside kitchen. So now... no beer and no wife for the time being

One out of two ain't bad. Sucks to be without the beer!
If my beer was in there I would take an ax to the door and deal with it some other time.
Good Luck

Get in the toad and go get a cold 6 pack.

Open a beer and call your coach tech support line, while you are sitting on hold, probably have one or two more beers. When they answer, maybe they have a trick to open the door.........

If not, go out for margies with the wife.

In the morning, re-evaluate the situation.

Dang that's terrible can you get to the plungers at the adjacent doors. If not use a crowbar so not to damage beer.

Have you tried pushing in on the door as you lift up on the handle?

Just a thought, that's how you have to open the basement doors on my Newmar.

Is it a lockable door? Is it locked? Try the key anyway if it is lockable.

I would think the link has dropped off the back of the handle (inside).
Start looking at the latch itself. You may be able to open the hatch with a small wedge or old credit card, etc. Drive out the hinge pins..that works..use care and you can put it back like new.
I had a link drop on one of my hatches and was able to push back the two latches from below and get inside to fix everything. Another trick is work your way in from another hatch. A lot cheaper than damaging the door.

You have not said what actually holds the door closed. This may have been overlooked by your locksmith.

Let it be known that you have a 1/2 Kilo of Afghan hash in there and it will be open when you wake up in the morning. There are some that start where locksmiths leave off.
