FYI, Door latches/locks

The door latch on our 2005 Bounder got to the point where it would lock us out, the key would not unlock the latch. It required us to pull on the exterior handle and the pushing up on the entire mechanism. I hope this is making sense. I finally got into the problem, first researching the internet and finding a reference to a bent lever. I spent the better part of an hour taking things apart (losing a screw in the process). Everything looked normal, reassemble the mechanism to no avail. A lot of trying different things finally resulted in a super simple adjustment. On the door, if you look at the edge, below where the door-latch mechanism, dead-bolt, etc. are you will see a hole with a nut. By adjusting that nut in (righty-tighty) resulted in everything working as it should. The nut is a 7/16 on our door and requires a thin-walled socket, which I just happened to have. I would like to post a photo, as it would simplify the whole explanation. I hope this will help someone and make their life a lot easier!

Glad you were able to fix it. Don't know exactly what your door looks like, but here is a pdf on adjusting a MH door. Hope it helps if you still have a problem.
