Severral years ago, when I visited the Airstream factory in Ohio, I brought up the issue of the entrance door lock locking itself when the door was slammed.
I was told to tell owners "NOT TO SLAM THE DOOR".
Obviously, that was a funny answer.
We came up with a lock kit, many years ago, that prevents that from happening.
That kit has 2 washers and some instructions.
The best part, is IT'S TOTALLY FREE
, and will continue to be free
Simply send us a envelope with 2 stamps on it with your name and address (SASE).
We will mail back to you that kit, the same day we receive your request and the SASE (self addressed stamped envelope).
After installation, the entrance door will NEVER lock itself again.
