WE do not have slam latches on our 2014 Sun Seeker, however we did change out the locks so as to add a bit more security as the ones that come with the unit are very generic. To hold the doors open we installed the /catches / latches to the side of the unit. They come in two packs and we installed one on the door for the sewer dump door to hold it up and also one on the door for the generator. Both work well and are easily installed with a bit of butyl tape and the screws that come in the package .Works well and quite inexpensive. We met up with a Forester owner camping this year and they were missing the cabinet that comes out of the wall right beside the front door. The owner lost a lot of cupboard space without this cabinet.
They had a ladder down the back and I am pricing one now as its one of those handy items to get up on the roof. The Dealer indicated it has to have backing so they are talking to Forest River to see if we have backing or not. That seemed a bit strange to me but what ever.

I have a 2015 3051S. I installed gas lifts on the sewer hatch, the main BIG hatch and on the bed lift. The sewer door is a 45-degree/90-degree lift. When the slide is out it opens 45-degrees. But when the slide is in it opens a full 90-degrees.

I got them from Hatchlift and wouldn't be without them.
