Bathroom Door very loose
 
On our 2019 Int Sig RBQ the bathroom door doesn't close very tight. Meaning, it closes and latches properly, but there seems to be a lot of play at the latch when closed.. Is this normal?

Old home owner's trick. If the play is caused by a too wide gap between the lock and the strike plate, remove the strike plate and cut a piece of thin cardboard (cereal box, etc.) into fit behind it, then reinstall the plate. Moves the plate about 1/16 inch closer to the lock.

I had a similar issue with my 2017 International 28 Serenity. In addition to the loose latch the gap between the door and frame got wider as you moved toward the bottom of the door frame. On our warranty visit to JC, they simply removed a screw at the bottom of the frame and moved it over 1/4 inch. Fixed the problem.

Get a little adhesive felt sticky, or clear rubber bumper, and stick it in the door jamb.
