    Been away for the last 2 months in Spain arriving home last Tuesday

    We have a 2013 Swift Sundance and on three occasions when slamming the door it locked all by itself, luckily the cab doors were also unlocked at the time.

    One day they won't be, then what happens ?

    Anybody else had similar problems ?

    Maybe central locking/alarm fitted?

    Our motorhome, if we close the doors at night using the central locking system but open in the morning using the lever on the hab door.

    The damn thing locks us out as well :Eeek::Eeek:

    My Mh is a 2013 model so should not be affected by a 2012 recall,also it is locking me outside not inside.
    Interesting point about the central locking.
    There have been three recalls on my Mh already including chassis bolts, window seals and the rear wheel aperture to small to remove wheel,all have been corrected by Swift before our trip to Spain.

    i would say the locking lever is loose inside the door allowing it to swing over as the door bumps closed
