2020 view broken entry door handle

Well broke my entry door handle after 3 days. The manuals have no info or maker on the door. Little sticker on the inside handle says do not open inside and outside handle at same time. Today I was going out while the wife was coming in. Now the outside handle just flops loose and has no function. Seems it could be a simple fix if a manual was available. Rather fix myself than the trouble to bring to a dealer. Anyone have info on who makes the door? I'll call Winn in the morning to find out. I dont think I'll be the first or last person that will do this.

suspect a new latch is all that you will need, rather than the whole door. Not worked on that year, for sure!
Are you familiar with some of the online help sites?
This is a new one for ID on the options on your unit and how to read it. Might be a place to start. Also I might get in touch with Winnebago for specifics but having the info on hand first might always help.
There used to be lots of info like what colors, sealers, trim, etc. and Winnebago has changed a bunch of the online so that I've lost track of how to find stuff but assume it is still there somewhere?

Thanks for the link. I couldn't find anything on this door . For 2020 the view changed to a new European door and Winn buys it from Europe. That is what I heard anyways. I cant find any info on it. Seems a simple link is probably disconnected inside when both handles were pulled at the same time. I dont think that's an issue with domestic door hardware.

What did WBGO Support say when you contacted them about the issue?

The door is too new and they have no info on it. They suggested bring in to the dealer.

Said Lippert supplies it. Called Lippert and they said it was too new and they didnt have literature. Asked for me to take picture of inside handle and email it to them which I did a short while ago...looks like I may have to take apart myself at this point.

Yikes. Somebody knows. Otherwise they wouldn't have that warning on the door.

You can bet the dealer doesn't know. All they'll do is take it apart to see if they can fix it or not.

Also, you're not going to be the only 2020 View owner that runs into this issue. You can count on that.

Agree. I told Winn that I didnt want it to have it sit at the dealer for a month especially knowing they have no manual on this. Looks like it's time to take it apart after work. Nothing like repairing a new RV. At least I made it 3 days.

I ended up fixing mine. You have to remove the plastic full height trim. There are 4 black plastic plugs on the edge of door. 2 on side and 1 on top and 1 bottom. Then remove the long door bar with small Allen wrench and screw. That will let you remove the cover. Once that is off, you have to orakbinside at the guts. There is a white plastic bar and different metal bar that has to be reversed position. You can push the plastic one over with a screw driver without opening the guts of the hardware. It's easier and faster than I explained. I have pictures that will help. First picture is the plugs you have to remove. They just pry off. 2nd picture is looking inside the hardware. In the middle you will see a white rectangular plastic piece with scrape marks and metal rectangular piece. This is how it should look when correct. It will be the opposite when you open it. You can use a screw driver and push the plastic piece to the other side. Let me know if you have more questions.

Crah - Congratulations on repairing your door lock. Not many of us tackle jobs like that but I have found that it is highly unlikely that a dealer tech has either so might as well try myself. Have been RVing for 12 years and fix virtually anything that can be but there are things that need to be replaced. Some dealers will order the part under warranty and let you do the fix as they are so backlogged. After 12 years, I have enough tools to tackle almost anything. Good luck and you will enjoy the coach much more with your skills to keep thing in shape.

When I get mine apart next week, I will look for a more permanent fix. In the future, the person on the outside leaves the handle alone if its locked till the person on inside opens door.

I have no problem fixing something if its fast and easier. Learned that from my first new RV 13 years ago after waiting on warranty work. Seems my RV may have been build on a Friday or Monday. I got every option available except the acrylic window. There is no sewer storage where its supposed to be. Its completely missing. Not sure of the 2020 is supposed to have a battery boost like the older models but I dont have one. I didnt inspect the roof on delivery due to the excitement and there is black sealant footprints all over the roof and silicone dabs covered all over the solar panels. All the sealant on the roof is black. For some reason all the videos ive seen it being white just like my previous rvs. All the caulking. On the outside has a slight yellow tint too. Not sure if these are all supposed to be normal. Looks like I need to call Winnie tomorrow. If anyone else has info on this please chime in.

I broke mine. It is a pretty standard setup. I ordered one from etrailer. It was an exact fit.
