Compartment doors won't open

We just took our new 2015 Jayco Precept 35UN on a week long camp.
When we arrived at the campsite we were not able to open some of the compartment doors on the outside. Specifically the access door to the sewage connection hose and three of the storage compartments. All doors were unlocked. Has anyone else had this problem

Are the latches actually stuck or is it the doors themselves? If it is the doors, are you on a level site? I have seen where coaches that are not level causing the chassis to "twist" somewhat causing side-swinging doors to stick. It may not even look that far off, but if the top clearance is tight it doesn't take much to jam the doors.

Sometimes the door hinges need to be adjusted down to create more clearance at the top edge.

Latches won't open on lower deck

I've had the very same problem. On some of the lower cargo compartments the latch mechanism was not being pulled back or retracted far enough to allow the compartment door to open easily. I had to disassemble the latch itself and bend the metal arm that pulls the latch bolt in so you can open the door. Be careful , the latch bolt must protrude enough to keep the cargo compartment closed but must retract enough when you pull on the cargo door handle to open easily.
Hope this helps.
