Friction entrance door

My spec sheet says under the fall package upgrade my unit has the "friction entrance door" see the pic of the spec sheet. Any idea what this is? Will I feel friction heat every time I enter the unit??? Lol (joke)Click image for larger version

We just ordered a 365saqb with the same package and the dealer said it is a door that stays open when you open it (ie friction). The benefit, according to the dealer, is that the door won't keep wanting to automatically close when you are loading the camper.

Isn't that what the little latch is for? Wind won't blow a door shut that is "hooked" open.

The friction doors stay at whatever position you put them in. We got on our SAQ too. I have to say it was strange at first but you quickly get used to them and I love them now. They take a good bit more push to close from any open position but will also not swing open and slam against the camper. You'll see after you get used to them and then go in someone else's unit without them how nice they are. You'll likely slam their door like a crazy person you'll see.

Lol. I do tend to over do things.

I visited my new sierra today and noticed the doors swing was slowed. I assumed that is what they meant by friction.

We have one on ours and love it. You don't have to latch it to keep it open either. :0)
