Squeaky Door

The front door on our coach nearly always squeaks on the road. We've tried closing it hard and easy and neither works. There appears to be no adjustment on the latch. Can't tell if it's the main or screen door. Has anyone else had this issue and solved it. Thanks in advance.

I had same problem. It was actually the screen door making the noise. I bought some rubber seal for doors at at Lowes. Put it between the screen door and the outside door and no more noise.

There is a product that has been around for some time. I have a gallon of it but just rediscovered it's many, many uses. We have a window that won't slide. I've had done everything I could think of including contacting WBGO several times with no solution. Somebody on these forums said to use 303. I did and it fixed it.

What does that have to do with your squeaky door??? 303 is a space age product that is used for so many things on the RV it should come with a gallon of it. As far as lubricants I think I have them all but not to many are good for today's rubber products but 303 is. It's good on just about anything including using it as a treatment for the exterior of any coach.

Today I loosened all the screws on the window trim inside the coach. Then liberally sprayed all around then tightened all the screws. WHY?? To stop it from squeaking and creaking as we travel. Its great for all slide rubber gaskets. I sprayed all hinges on the coach inside and out.

It is not cheap at $65 a gallon but there's nothing better for so many items on the RV.

Our coach came with rubber gaskets added between the screen door and the outside door. They have never squeaked.

I have the same problem--it's the latch rubbing against the bolt/lug (whatever the thing that sticks out from the jamb is called). I wrap a strip of duct tape once or twice around it, and that solves the problem. I have to replace the tape after it gets worn through and the squeak returns.

X2 on taping the pin. We use 4-5 turns of black electrical tape. Seems to last for a few thousand miles. Though I've messed with it several times, it's the only cure I've found.
