New motorhomers and struggling where to go for little jobs e.g the oven door catch wont lock,SMEV Oven??? Can you just buy the catch or new door,based in Nottingham if anyone can recommend someone.My local garage is brilliant on cars but not the space for motorhomes.
Any tips ??Habitation door now gone extremely stiff and a wire hanging loose by front tyre ?Have we made the biggest mistake of our lives,not taken it out yet
for even one night.

We will struggle to help you without information about your van Type - Year?

What's the catch look like. They are often just sprung shut

Lubricate the door hinges?
There is a brake pad indicater wire not of ten used

The oven door has a "striker"pin which looks like it inserts into a steel catch,the catch is all loose inside.
The habitation door handle,very stiff when you are attempting to pull to open,wife really struggles.
Brake pad wire makes sense

I'd guess the steel catch part is broken

Something like this

Whereabouts in nottingham? I'm only just south of loughborough, I'm sure a local funster would pop round to give advice
