I got locked out of my 2015 GT for the same reason. Had to climb in through drivers side window. There is a safety recall on some models of these door handles. Ours was replaced for free. Check with manufacturers web site. The affected models are listed there.

I called Trimark and there is no recall on the 060-1650 (aka RV Designer T507) door lockset. However, googling the door lock did show that an lot of other people have had the latch bolt fail in the same way mine did. For now, I'll just order a replacement and hope for the best.

How did you get the door open?

I unscrewed the lock from the inside. The only issue was that one screw was obscured by the side of the screen door but it was close enough to the edge that it could be removed. It left scrapes on the screen door, but only minimally. Then used needle nose pliers to pull the latch bolt back and the door opened. Until I replace it, the door won't stay closed unless you use the deadbolt to keep it shut. But it does open and you can lock it so it's not too big of a problem.

Thanks for the info, now I know how to remove the latch if this happens to me.
