Cargo Door Will Not Open

We have a 2013 Winnebago Journey 36M and can not get the cargo door covering the water hook up to open. It's always been a little tough to open but now it will not budge. Any suggestions? Fortunately, we are at home and were just preparing for a big trip next week. any help would sure be appreciated. We are new to the RV world but love it so far!!

Many Thanks,

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'm guessing that one of your latches has broken and won't retract to allow the door to open. You'll probably have to play burglar and try to get something to slip in through whatever space might be available to push the broken latch aside. Look at your other bay doors to see how they work.

Best of luck

I had a problem with my swing up bay doors starting jam up and not close or open a smooth as they did only a short time earlier.

Found out the all the doors are on a common hinge rail where the doors can move left or right to a point where the latch/catch don't line up.

Just a slight nudge left or right to the door and they were smooth again...

Could you post a picture of your door ? That would help.
