Black Tank Access Door

Has anyone mounted a door retainer of some sort on the black tank access door on Palazzo 36.1 or 36.3. Tired of balancing it with my head or stick. And confirm they come from the factory without, since they did forget to put on the right passenger window lock!

your wet bay door is not a side hinge mount?

you mean the rear door, which is for your rear bath?

sound like you have a separate/additional sewer pull for the rear bath?

I imagine that door is top hinged because of it's elongated size, but I'm sure adding a simple gas shock might be a easy solution - or a 'door catch' that you could add in a perpendicular position to catch the door against the upper side wall when in use.

Thanks. I really wanted to make sure this wasn't a factory overlook. It's really awkward. Thanks for the info. 4 month newbie learning!

Think I'll opt for the shock. Out of sight. Cleaner look.

if you're like me, and don't like the gas shock on the bottom of the entrance door, you can use that. Mounts are easy to find at most hardware or boat/rv stores.

I like our entrance door to swing all the way open, not only 'half' way with the shock... I just added a door latch on the wall behind it to keep it open.

An RV baggage door catch is often used in this role. Small but effective.

The tv outside has the shocks on it. I guess I'm trying to keep the same theme. But Thor could have done better. What would have been the cost per unit?

I use a couple of suction cups from Harbor Freight Tools and a short bungee cord. Also comes in handy when wanting to hold the entrance door open on windy days. Will not harm paint.
