Problem Solved

I have gotten tired of the compartment doors on my Class C falling on my head. Most of them don't have a latch to hold them up because they would block vents, and it takes an extra hand to hold them open while I load and unload. Today I took the adjustable handle from an old windshield scrubber, put a rubber chair tip on each end. And VOILA! Problem solved. It fits and holds up all doors and they don't move until I'm ready for them to.

Try this. I added it and left the original hinges in place. It only took one to keep our door open.

But mine was free. And besides, when I patent it and sell it on TV, I can offer 3 for the price of one if you call in the next 5 minutes!
