Country Coach Door Problem

I recently purchased a 2004 Country Coach Magna. I am currently unable to open the front door either with the key or the alarm button. It seems that the door handle is not being released by the alarm button. I cannot get the key to release the lock either. Is this a common issue and what is the solution?

Our rig does not have such accessories, but I'll bet the folks at Country Coach Owners on Yahoo will have some input for you.

I just had a locksmith out. He could not get in through the door either. We opened a side window and I crawled through. I found the inside door latch was hung open by the screen door. I released that and he reset the alarm and it opened.

An easy fix once I got to the problem.

Make sure the screen door does not hang up the interior door latch.

You just mentioned a good reason to leave at least one window unlocked. Hopefully one that you can crawl through

Any idea what caused it to end up that way?

Yes. The screen door has a split sliding section so you can reach through to release the door to close it. The sliding section was partially closed-just enough to catch the door lever when I released the door to close it. I was not aware that the lever caught on the screen door when I closed it and hit the alarm to lock it. There was no indication from the exterior that there was a problem until I tried unsuccessfully to open it.

Thanks just wanted to make sure i didn't do it on mine. Sounds like that slide needs to be either clear open or completely closed

We ensure we attach the screen door to the exterior door before closing exterior door. We had the plastic door stopper replaced with metal, which helped with closing the door, and not letting it open too far. We've also formed a habit of not leaving the door open so wind can catch it.
