Re: Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

I meant parked overnight pointing downhill too much makes sleeping a bit awkward. It might help with the hard start issue but causes sleeping interruption. Especially if you know the story of the Princess and the Pea.

Re: Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

Thanks Blueg. I will attend to this at end of journey. At present the wife valet method is working reasonably well. Thanks Alan. I will look at this ... have not done viton return lines.

Re: Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

Ok reporting in on a successful “fix”. I tried cycling the electric lock opener as I nudged the lever as Desert Star suggested. I should have tried this myself but was a bit reticent to do so lest I damage something in the wilderness. So I assume it likely happened the same way and kind of got a loc...

Re: Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

Thanks everyone. Just got back into service range ... was up at Mojave Preserve at Hole in the Wall campsite. Ffffing freezing and blowing like crazy..... I was eyeing several RVs fondly as I climbed up into my RTTent. The full moon in a clear desert sky made it worth it though. Now I will try the s...

Re: Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

I surmise it is a clip issue but the lever pull does not move. Can’t lever it open. So.... the rod it is connected to must be restricted. No play in it what so ever.

Where can I obtain clips? I’m in Las Vegas area at present but heading south.

Driver Door Latch Pull Stuck

Suddenly my pull lever on inside is stuck. I can open door from outside after lowering window but it does nothing for unsticking the inside lever pull. I am on the road and really don’t want to take the door card off. It happened when G was on a tilt on the road edge I had pulled over for a break. T...
