Anyway, did you get assistance on the lock?
We did make it to Dante's....by VW bug....the RV wouldn't have fit the last 1/4 mile or so, very twisting, turning and steep.

From the other posts it looks like I need a Torx bit to adjust the lugs in slightly. I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see how it works.

I've struggled with my Solera's door on and off since new. It's gotten stuck several times and locked me out. I've tightened up the plates and no problems now for a while.

Update on the door lock issue. I tried to tighten the two lugs with a torx bit today. No luck, they were screwed in as far as they would go. Plan B - I could see where the lugs were hitting the aluminum door frame. Seeing that section of the frame is pretty much unsupported with nothing behind it, I filed down the aluminum frame to just a hair more than the lugs were hitting. I double checked all the screws on the hinges and they're all tight so there was no room for adjustment there. Unless I pointed out to someone that I filed the frame I don't think anyone would even notice.
