Door lock problems

On our 2006 Meridian the front door lock mechanism does not open from the outside. It feels like the door is locked but it is not. It does open fine from the inside. Any ideas or fixes would be greatly appreciated as we are out on the road.

On ours, a 2014 Itasca 27N, there is a small rubber plug near the latch on the edge of the door itself.

Under this plug is an adjustment - takes a phillips I think - and screwing it in or out governs the behaviors you are talking about.

Hope that makes sense - hope it works!

Hardy,i have a 07 Meridian and yes I had the same problem.You can get a new handle assembly or do what I did.
Remove the inner and outer door handle.You will need to remove the nut the is behind the tape on the side of the door also.Put both parts together and you will see how the outer part has a arm the opens the inside lever.On mine the lever form the outer part would try to open but went over the top of it.
I just bent the arm down so it strikes it ok and reinstalled.have not had this problem for over a year and we full time in it.Good luck.It just takes a little time to do

Interesting Davey. The adjustment I was talking about is in fact a nut, not a phillips screw. I can adjust mine with needle nose pliers. I wonder if that has a similar effect as bending the rod...

Thanks to you both

Thanks to you both. I am large the hole so that a 7/16 deep socket would fit to adjust the nut. Once I had it all apart I was able to bend the bar and it seems to be working. Thanks again for saving us dollars and angst. Thanks for monitoring the forum and responding so quickly

A thin wall 1/4 inch drive Craftsman 7/16 deep wall socket will fit through that hole.
