I see, different latch.

I have had problems with those latches. Even the smallest twisting of the frame will mess with those. One problem stopped when I began latching the walls after leveling but before setting the stabilizers. Still sometimes I have to lean hard into the wall to get the latch in the slot. Sometimes even then, they do not go all the way up the slot but as long as they are secure, I don't worry. Hope you get your issue fixed soon.

After camping the first time in our new Flagstaff T12RB, I set the stabilizers after I erect the camper. Frame flexure can make latching difficult.

On setting the stabilizers, I just ensure good ground contact and avoid jacking the frame. Our camper (8 trips this year) is very stable when set-up this way.

Thanks so much for your suggestions...when we get the camper back from the dealer we will use your methods. This is a great forum.
