Dad and Mom "wrestling" - sliding bedroom door issue

Ok, so I've never had to use the wrestling excuse, as most of our adult "activity" occurs after the kids have gone to sleep in their rooms and it all has been behind a locked bedroom door. Boring I know...

In my planning efforts, as any RV'er should...I've been wondering about well you know....



We ended up with the TT that has a sliding bedroom pocket door. So what kind of suggestions can I get for keeping this thing secure? If we were making one day trips it would be different and not a concern, but we are planning week long trips so it is definitely on the concern list.

Best to be a good planner.

If it's only a week, I strongly suggest you try COLD SHOWERS. If that doesn't work, try putting the kids to bed, let the camp fire burn down, and find some bushes!!!

True, Don (and/or Dona if it was a team contribution) That is a solid option that didn't cross my mind. Those power folding third row seats are convenient...

Surely I thought OC would have been here crafting up a solution right now...that guy can fabricate a satellite dish out of a tuna can. OC???

Put a sock on the door 😬
Seriously tho, look at the floor where the door slides, a 2x4 between the door and wall on my camper 36" long prevents the door from opening.
No OC overhaul engineering needed

100% correct. And their spotlight is something I'd rather not be in at this point...as I said, I'm not 80, I'm 40...but then again...I ain't 20 either!

That would be a true risk/reward scenario.

That is priceless TURBS. I'm going out to measure and check for valid engineering anchor points.

And yes, I can report back after in depth testing...

And no, no pics...

Be thankful you are not in a popup with curtain I still remember those days. But really the sock idea sounds good and can be explained easily where there's a will there's a way.
