So I crawled up under the RV, and with no small amount of effort, I was able to reach around the tank valve guard and remove the 4 screws on the latch cover (and 10% of the skin on my right forearm) and imagine my surprise when I pulled on the latch rod and it didn’t release. The spring tension was there, so I knew the latch was still connected. Turns out that the plastic plunger had fractured beyond the door edge, and because it fit so tightly, there wasn’t enough room to let it fall away and allow the door to open.
It’s all good in the end. The right latch will hold the door closed well enough to drive and I can finally get some propane! I think I might even have a replacement latch in here somewhere.
