I did take some rubber scraps I had and from the outside pushed them into the space between the window and the frame. It worked as a temp fix. On the highway today it was much quieter.

My deadbolt requires some amount of closing force in order for it to engage but holds tightly afterward. The screen door has required adjustment a couple of times as it ends up causing difficulty opening the combined door - it catches the latch on doorframe when the latch is in a fixed position (attached to the main door) and the result is difficult (sometimes very difficult) opening of the door.

Oh I have a Georgetown.
I haven't heard that they work that way for safety reasons, if they dealer said that i think he might be pulling your leg and traying to get out of adjusting things. Far as I know they should both lock from inside or out.

Mine both do and i have a Georgetown as well.

We have a 2011 Berkshire 390-rb-40 our deadbolt wouldn't latch. I found the second latch wasn't catching so the door was slightly ajar. We are currently at LazyDays in Tucson.they fixed the door(the pin in the frame has to float) now the deadbolt latches and the latch catches the second click. The top window of our drivers window was missing half of the rubber retainer so they are replacing the window assembly it should be in next week. We will have been here a month waiting.

I agree with Georgetown they should both work. When I looked at mine there was not enough adjustment in the latch to make it work. The screw holes would have to be moved and that would not work. A file to remove just enough material from the bolt and mine works smooth and easy. Because you file from the back of the bolt you can't see it. Be careful not to scratch the painted sides.

Thank everyone. Seems that hisis a common problems for the deadbolt not to latch. I will take apart and check to see if a little filing will help.
It will work perfectly from the outside and the key so I imagion I may need to force it inside the first time or file a little. Thanks

The deadbolt on our 2011 Georgetown would not engage from either side when new. The dealer adjusted it, and its been perfect ever since.
