Paulie Boy.... Unfortunately I don't have a solution for the latch.... Was just aggravated that there isn't one! Sorry for any confusion.

I've thought about adding these I'm not sure they are long enough to fit our doors.

I see the same product as you show above up to 1 3/8". Not sure how thick the doors are on the Berks. Maybe could try to use the same locks as used on the electical bay door under the drivers area. Maybe too look into a couple of struts to keep the door into the open position.

Struts are no problem to find. I'm little timid about drilling into the painted doors on the Berk. A screwup would be expensive.
