G'town entry door improvement
i know there have been several threads surrounding difficult to close and having to slam entry doors on g'towns...
mine was tough sometimes. sometimes real tough. it did depend on how level the coach was, and closing from the inside was always far worse. i made some minor adjustments to the plates in the door jamb, and got some improvement, but felt that i needed to lower the plates further than the bottom screw slot would allow. i planned on cutting the slot lower, and enlisted the experience of my father to help me.
he took one look at the door and suggested we lubricate the plate and the two posts on the door lock with vaseline petroleum jelly before we did anything to see if it helped. we put a nice coat on the acceptance slots in the metal plates in the jamb, and on the two posts that are part of the lock mechanism.
WOW what a difference ! after working the door about 10 times, the parts were all well coated and now from any angle, inside or out, from level to unlevel, no matter, the door closes like an absolute dream....i just cannot believe how much better it works. just amazing is all i can say.
give it a try....it worked wonders for me and i hope it helps anyone else out there.
