Striker Bolt Failure

Hi, all...well, the first shakedown with the brand-new Sunseeker 3010DS was...well, shaky. Biggest problem (of many) was that, after two days, the door wouldn't close. Seemed like the striker bolts were too long - in fact, there are dents in the door jamb where it looks like it was forced at one time. Had to remove the striker bolts in order to get the door to close (I know, there are dire warnings on the door sticker that say I will die if I do this...but what will happen if we drive down the road with the door open, hmmm?) Has anyone else run into this and, if so, how did you solve it? Different length striker bolt? Where do I get them? Thanks very much!

We had a similar issue with our 390bh. They just used an angle grinder to adjust the bolt and it now works fine.

Our RV dealer was able to repair/adjust the door, as well as fix the faulty wiring in the RV end of the toad hookup. Glad I bought local...nine miles as opposed to 100 miles is a great deal!
