Screen door latching problem
On our 22FB I had a problem where the screen door itself wasn't staying closed. The plastic latch for the screen door was barely making contact behind the black plastic 'keep' plate that keeps it closed. There was, maybe, a 16th of an inch 'bite' for the latch to grab hold of. So with any nominal movement of the trailer, let's say while walking around inside the trailer, the screen door would pop open.
So I took two simple plastic washers and raised out that black plastic latch plate maybe an eighth of an inch and then the screen door remained closed just fine. HOWEVER ...
I then discovered that when I closed both the outer door and the inner screen door (both mated together) I was unable to open the 2 doors from the outside because the outer door latch mechanism was only releasing itself and NOT the screen door latch. I had to resort to a good tug on the outer door itself to get back inside the trailer.
I repeated the same steps again, this time inside the trailer and was able to clearly see the problem. From the inside of the trailer I had to and was able to hold the screen door latch handle in the 'open' position with one hand and then with my other hand I could release the outer door latch and thus open both doors.
From what I observed, the outer door latching mechanism seems to have no interaction with the inner screen door latch. So with the spacing adjustment that I made with the washers to provide a more secure 'hold' for the screen door when closed, I've created this new problem.
I'm scratching my head wondering how the latching mechanisms for both doors are supposed to work together when the doors are mated. Anyone have any experience with this particular issue I have described? I must be missing something here.
