Our shower room door locks by the usual push button system. The catch works fine but whilst travelling, especially if going round roundabouts or corners the door will swing open whilst still in the locked position.
Have never had this problem with our other motorhomes but it is a pest on this our new Autosleeper Symbol. Any ideas how to prevent this happening?

Our wardrobe doors are held shut by magnets, top and bottom. Maybe you could supplement your lock with some. Added benefit, it wouldn't change the operation of the door.

theres often movement in the hinges that flexes with the door. it may be possible to adjust the hinges and the lock keep up to get a better bite of the bolt. its often only in by a couple of millimetres

That's what I was thinking, perhaps putting a spacer in behind the lock plate would be a good idea?

This is just the occasion when I miss the old "thanks" button, but thanks for all your helpful suggestions I think I will look at Big 1 suggestion first followed and supplemented by Ed Excels magnet suggestion. (y)
