2022 Travato K,KL,G,GL Latch

We have a 2022 Travato K with the 'Square Type Not Round' Cabinet and Drawer latches. They are held together with 2 tiny pins, one on each side of the latch. They have a tendency to work their way OUT and then FALL APART. It's very easy to loose the tiny pins.

Has anyone modified these type of latches so the pins won't work their way out ? A 'Spot' of Super Glue on the outside may work IF it doesn't get on to the part of the pin the latch rotates on.

I thought maybe, after an alcohol cleaning, a drop of 'clear' silicone glue on the exposed end of the pins may work? ANY IDEAS ? Trying to keep the pins IN, so the Pull part of the latch doesn't fall apart.


For those of you that have the newer Travato etc. that does NOT let you connect city water AND CLOSE the back doors, I have a fix for that and it works very well.

I also mounted a longer sewer hose 'holder' that replaces the original holder. Now we can use a 15' Rhino with the ends on it, it will fit inside the new holder. NOTE: I think ONLY the longer Sewer Hose holder will work on the newer Travato K models.....

As far and the handle pins, I have the 59K with the same problem. I lost two pins and replaced them with a small headed nail and glued the head to the handle.

I would like to know how you resolved the water connection with the doors closed?

How to add photos to a post

The photo should reside on your computer, tablet or phone. If you have a photo at Google or Dropbox or similar cloud location download it (Right click Save Photo As) to your computer, tablet or phone FIRST.

Here's how to post a photo inside an existing thread that you are replying to:

Click scroll down to bottom of a thread to the Quick Reply editor box.
  • At the bottom of the Quick Reply box, click "go advanced" and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded from your computer, tablet or phone's photo gallery. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

IF you are starting a new thread then you can skip the whole "Go Advanced" instruction because when starting a new thread you are already in the Advanced Editor. So, in this case you just scroll down to the "Manage Attachments" button in the Advanced Editor.

How to embed an image stored on another site:

NOTE: Google Photos is not an acceptable image host to embed photos from. The photo will show up for you but not for other people.

You can do this by using image tags. Upload the image to a service like imageshack and then copy the URL of the image and put that between [IMG] tags. That will work well, as long as the host site stays in business and doesn't disable your image for overuse of bandwidth etc. Please note that Photobucket images are not allowed and you will recieve an error message if you try to embed one of these images.

You can also paste in the location of a photo stored here in a photo gallery.

To do this: Paste the url of the image into your post. Then add the following code on either side of the url (with no extra spaces):

[IMG]url here[/IMG]

The image will appear where the url was in your text.

Interested in what you did to remedy the 59KL city water connection / back door closing challenge. (I close the door on the hose with the hose at the bottom right of the passenger side rear door; it crimps the hose but water flows, but I'd like to do something more elegant or at least functional). Thanks.

I would like to know how you fixed the city water and added the longer sewer storage.
