    Hi all, Started to get MH ready for the new season. I left locker internal doors open to let air circulate, when I closed them they would not catch. I thought it might be because the van as stood up for some time or that it was due to the cold weather. Gave the MH a hour run + had heating on for three hours. Lookers still would not lock . Has any one had this problem. Its a Swift 2015 van. Thanks in advance. John.

    Examine latches, determine problem, adjust latches to work correctly? Then adjust again when the moisture content of the wood has fallen to summer levels. I use a low wattage heater all winter to keep the interior slightly warmer than the outside air - it works for me. The problem you describe isn't uncommon in my experience.

    Thanks Tony. Checked the van again today and all was OK. Heat must have done the fix over night.
