    Using the MH this weekend as the forecast was good for today. Getting ready yesterday we noticed that when opening the bathroom door it now catches on the handle of the oven which is opposite the bathroom door. Sure this never used to happen.

    On site and on ramps as we always tend be, it is still the same and definitely was not like this before. It only takes a gentle push to get it past the handle so not a major problem, but can't see what could be causing it. Cooker does not appear to have moved and the bathroom door and frame are all solid as before.

    Anyone had a similar problem, or is it just one of those things that there is no explanation for?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Dont now if this the same but when we picked our van last year the dealer told us to go round all the screws nuts bolts and tighten them from time to time as things do become loose after being on the road with all the movment. I have done this twice and its amazing how things have become loose.

    Just had a similar problem on my new Autotrail Comanche. The toilet door also acts as a dividing door between lounge and bedroom when opened and should latch to the frame on the opposite side. Worked perfectly last time out but today it will not latch. Tried tightening the screws but still not latching. Strange, maybe the recent cold spell has affected something.
