1998 Mid entry door
#1
For those of you out there with exterior doors PRIOR to the Bode air doors…..
Now that we’re finally getting some decent weather in the Midwest we would love to use our retractable screen door and get even more airflow, but I can’t figure out how to get the door to stay open.  Our Newmar had a built in lock open mechanism in the door and we had a previous coach that had a flip up metal bar that clicked into a piece attached to the exterior of the coach. Are we missing something? We can’t seem to see any way to secure the door in the open position.  Thanks!    Huh

Yes, surprised you don’t have a small flip out latch. On a quad slide there is no latch, but on 0-3 slides I would think there would be one?

Thanks, Brad!! I feel a little dumb now….but in my defense they had it painted so well I didn’t even know it was there until now!

I know the feeling ?. I miss those latches as I have a manual door quad with no latch. Not sure if they didn’t think about it at the time or what. Should have done a door that hinges on the left. I’m tempted to have them put a latch on and then just leave the slide in on a nice day when I want a screen door open.
