We have noticed that our door does the same thing, except we note a loud "pop" before we see the door move. I have done the flight attendant check through the front windshield using the rear-view mirror to inspect that the door is indeed closed, and it always is....but then it pops and we can see that it isn't then. This has caused us several unscheduled stops to re-close the door. For us, any speed, any road conditions, and any situation...

We have taken the coach in for repair, because we too feel quite uncomfortable with it rattling loose! If I hear anything, I'll post it.

Perhaps a call to Winnebago is in order?

An old fix is to wrap a couple of turns of electrical tape around the keeper. May or maynot help in your situation, but a try won't hurt. Good Luck

Perhaps the latch (striker) needs to be adjusted to pull the door in more? I'm talking about the post that the latch contacts - I believe that post can be moved for a door adjustement.

...can't believe no one has asked if your rig has both a "man" door and a "woman" door? ...and which of the two doors is toward the rear? That could be a great rig for couples of some religious persuasions!!

Rutney,

We must assume you are talking about the main entrance door to the coach, Eh?

I have not had mine open by itself but have noticed that it is hard to shut properly and sometimes to open. I had this looked at by the dealer while in for some initial warranty work and they said they adjusted it. Maybe, maybe not.

You might still be under warranty on the coach so it should be handled by the dealer. If problem persists could be a bad set of locks from Winnie and a few of us have them.

Just getting back on subject. No way to write this without smiling.

I also need to know which is the "man door"? You could be referring to a driver's side door, possibly, but in our case I do most of the driving and I'm not a man.

I really thought you must be referring to the storage bay with the sewer connections. That's definately HIS compartment.

I'm guessing it's the door opposite the "woman door!"
