In a pinch an ordinary bolt will suffice, just saw the head off and file 2 flats on the bolt end to tighten the bolt.

Strike came in. No groove. JB weld is going on Saturday morning. Since it is cold it may take a while to set, so I'll just use the screen door to keep the varmints out. Hopefully if I do it first thing Saturday it may be set enough to close the door by dark. If that doesn't last I'll install the new strike. I need to make sure the current strike setting is correct. Looks like my sealing problem is due to wear on the strike and will correct once the strike groove has been filled.

How cold is cold? I think JB has a working temperature range. There is a good chance it will fail quickly if the temp is not within the setting range. Would a bone yard have one that would work?

Please excuse my goof, an ordinary bolt will NOT work, it must be a shoulder bolt. They are sold at better hardware stores.

It was too cold for the JB Weld. I thought I would have access to the strike retaining nut by removing an access panel behind the strike. Turns out that is not an access panel at all, but instead holds and positions the inside of the door. I ended up tightening the bolt a 1/2 turn. I remembered that I tried to slam the door with an extension cord in the bottom. Mistake. Winnebago provides instruction on how to loosen a plate on the door and push the bottom in with a 2x4. That will be my next step. Live and learn.
