Because when there is an awning the arms interfere with (prevent) the door from being opened fully.

AirstreamGypsy,

Oh, do I know the phrase too well but I guess most people do.

We had an Argosy, a door-lock broke while returning to from Big bend. We taped the door closed and had it repaired after returning to Dallas, the damage was limited to the door (straighened) and a new lock (they're very proud of them).

Late in August we are headed to the Four Corners area thru Creed, hope to see you then.

Good Karma on the bath redo!

John

Kip,

I have a whole house full of "while I am at it" projects. I just thought Bambi might feel left out so....

Thanks for the Karma John.

Btw

Does anyone know how to soften the plumbers "whatever" you know the roll of tape type putty? Every time I try to call it plumbers putty I am corrected, so I don't know what to call it. Anyway, it is adhering very well, I guess it kept the water out as it should. Bu iI need the coving off to get the linoleum out. I thought I'd try pulling some dental floss behind it and hope that works.

Thanks!

AirstreamGyspy, When we saw you last, we had a wide-body 34, now we have a narrow body 34 so it will be easier to squeeze in tight places! JB

Yay! Yay! Yay!

I've finally gotten around to fixing the doorknob on the Bambi. After replacing the striker pocket when replacing the side panel I thought I'd just put the doorknob back in but the striker was too short which was partially the reason the door flew open. I'd like to think it wasn't really my fault at all :-) So, I did sort of. It really was way too short and that is why I hand't done anything yet. Hoped to find a longer core piece to put in. The Bargman L-300 has a longer striker but is really long. I remembered that I still had the old lock, not sure it was original or not but looked it. Anyway it was not a Bargman L-100-4 but a -6. At some point, the point of this striker was cut down a little, you'll see in the photo. So I just exchanged the cores and presto. I am very happy!

The pink with the X is just to keep the doorknob from banging into the side of the airstream.

Sorry it's not a close up

But the striker is a good 1/2" longer. Just right!

Next, the Deadbolt

Unfortunately the deadbolt was damaged in the slamming scenario or maybe just because it was 47 years old. I was given an old weiser lock, unused in 2000 or so and hoped I could install it when the time came. The old deadbolt was just a thumb bolt, no lock. the new one is keyed on both sides. Hey, it's free.

Here is my problem which I don't think is huge but will make me think a good while before going forward. Photos...
