I am having difficulty believing the plastic catch between the door and screen door would hold any better than my poor old fingers. Also realized today when the strut was replaced they used the same step bracket that was on the coach. It was bent in the incident so the strut does not line up correctly, ergo the door doesn't either and you have to slam the heck out of it to get it to latch and then the bottom is still not tight. Obviously back to the dealer with this part. Geeze!

My 378xl has a different handle. I am surprised that FR isn't using a standard assembly across the board.
Now that is a usable handle! Wonder can I get one like that put on my coach? No harm is asking, but yes, why wasn't it used across the board.

You have to buy a new double lock with that type of handle at Camping World.
About $100

Thanks, everyone. Seems the answer is indeed a new lock. CampingWorld does not show them in stock but PPL does, so that will be the route I go.
