bathroom door stop

one of the most aggravating things is a door that won't stay where you want it to, creeps open or creeps closed when you don't want it to move,.... our bathroom door does that, but it "creeps" to the middle of the room, ..... our 25KS does have a large bathroom, but when the door cuts off half that space by creeping to the middle position when I'm wanting it to stay open, it just aggravates me to no end,..... problem solved w/a magnet, two Command strips, a large steel washer and a flat head screw,..... we may be the only ones with a "creepy" door, but that combination of stuff has solved a problem that has bothered me ever since we got this trailer,....... now on to the next "creepy" problem.......

Looks nice! Much better than the shoe I use as a door stop

I like your magnet approach. I did it with a plastic clip.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

that white lower area is our shower base, above is the glass shower door, no place to mount that type of stop,..... I did find several magnetic stops but they were all solid bars, I wanted to use the spring model because it can flex if ever bumped,......but using the original stop did require me to figure out how to make it work,...... and although I've just finished it, I'm convinced the results are exactly what I was looking for,......

OH YAH - I see that in your pix....

It just me and the DW. We usually leave the door open all the time when parked, and especially leave it open when traveling in the winter because it will get cold in the bathroom.

Different problem, we like to leave the bath door just slightly open when not in use so one knows that it's available. Considering how the TT is set up the bath door will swing closed or open. I'm working on a gadget that will allow the door to be closed, to stay open, or be open about open about one inch. The one I'm working is a piece of spring steel mounted at the top of the door frame with an indentation at the top of the door. Open the door an inch or so the latch snaps into the indentation, pull just a bit further and the door opens freely. Close the door until the latch snaps into place and it stands an inch or so one.
