Bathroom Door Help
I have a 1985 Pace Arrow. The bathroom door lock broke and I can't get it open. How do I take off the door or open it to fix it? Thanks!

:welcome:I imagine that your hinge pins are on the inside of the bathroom , where you can't get at them.
Need to find out if the handle is broken or locked from the inside.
Original equipment bathroom door handle should have a hole in the center to over ride the lock, a 5" straight piece of coat hanger works great to push in and release the lock. If that's not the problem then you have to try prying the latch pin back out using 2 knives, one above and one below, alternating top & bottom to move the pin.
Good luck. :thumb:

Try a small knife or screwdriver between the latch and strike and push the latch back into the door.

Some times the obvious needs to be ask. I assume the hinges do not have a removable pin that you can drive out then pull it open from the hinge side.

The other solutions are all good but if they fail you can cut the bottom of the pins on the hinges off then drive them out.

And finally have you tried the outside window to see if it will raise you maybe able to reach the door lock that way.
