the other thing that was great about your latches is we would run bungy cords from latch to latch while the bunks were down. This way we had a place to hang wet towels from the pool or beach.

My speakers are screwy too. The outside ones actually work correctly ... but inside ... channel B is hardly hearable. Channel A only works the first speaker ... while channel B is very quiet ... and channel C is the outside speakers.

I'll bet if you pull out the stereo you'll see they wired it to one side. Mine is a genesis gt 2.0. When I pulled it out it had the wiring diagrams on the side. And you could see that they wired the internal 2 speakers to the same side. (The radio doesn't have a built in fader, so i think they thought that using balance between outside and inside would make customers happy). I added an attenuator on the 'a' channel also to compensate for the difference in internal and external speakers. Don't let these pics scare you. Pretty straight forward. The cavity below is perfect for an 8" subwoofer. And it sounds just as good outside when watching the game (or the latest chick flick too).

Latch repair pictures

Finally - after some tech issues (pc hard drive died) -back in business. Sorry for the delay, but here are a couple pictures:

Inside: The carriage bolt for the top lined up with the cable bracket on the inside. He drilled through the wall of the trailer and then through the bracket. The bottom bolt just came through the wall. That one just has a nut & washer. He used longer bolts and then cut them off after installing them.

The outside pictures show the head of the carriage bolt. Doesn't look any different than old lag screw.

I also tried to get a close-up of the one front latch that had a soft spot or bubble. The spot is to the right side of the latch. After they fixed the latch and re-sealed it, its just about gone. The bubble wasn't big to begin with, but now is not noticeable unless you really look for it.

We had the dealer do the work since it was covered by warranty, but once you work up the nerve to drill through the wall, its not a complicated fix.

EDIT: I used the term carriage bolt - but I think what he actually ended up using was a flat head machine screw or something similar to match the original head - not a typical hex head carriage bolt.

Well it looks functional but I would be mad if this was the only way to fix a new camper, the bolt and washer on the inside of the wall doesn't look all that well :/

Well, I had to pull the curtain back to take the picture. Its not noticeable otherwise, and it seems like a permanent fix. $5 worth of parts and should never have to worry about it again. Don't know why they don't do this at the factory (with a little better cosmetics) but the dealer said they have never seen this before - so maybe it was just a fluke. My main concern was water intrusion, that, and the back latches pulling completely out and the door falling down while driving down the road...

Big picture - its fixed, looks the same on the outside, covered up on the inside, and didn't cost me anything. I'm happy.

My latches started to pull away on the side bunk, the dealer tightened them back up and recaulked them, so far they haven't loosened back up. Hopefully they will be good
