I have the Valterra RV/Mobile Home Dead Bolt (VTS-343
) that I want to install in my 1956
Flying Cloud with the door-within-a-door.
I am trying to decide whether to install the lockset in the door (with the strike plate in the door frame in the sidewall of the coach) or in the sidewall of the coach (with the strike plate in the side of the door).
Normally, the lockset is installed in the door, but the exterior part of this lockset is almost an inch proud of the exterior surface of the door, and I worry that, when the door is swung all the way open, that exterior part of the lockset will hit and possibly damage the sidewall of the coach (even though I have installed this latch and bumper
Has anyone installed this dead bolt in a door like mine? If so, I would appreciate knowing how and where you installed it. If there is blog or Airforums thread (I searched, but did not find anything), on installation of this deadbolt, I would like to know.
