I Need a Door Prop, Idea's Needed

I have this access door where I store my BAL Leveler, Toolbox, And my hitches, I'm always doing some sort of head balance holding it up and lifting stuff in with both hands. Has anyone fixed a prop rod or have any ideas? He door will not go all the way up due to hitting the marker light on the right.

Mine has this sort of spring loaded clip that holds it up/open. It is attached to the camper and you just open it and connect to door to keep it up. I believe they are readily available.

What about using the prop that holds the main door open. might have to turn the door part around but that might work.

I would contact your dealer and ask them to order Jayco's spring loaded clip. I bet it's inexpensive and it looks easy to install.

You might be able to move that marker light over just enough to open the hatch all the way. If you pull the lense off you should see just a small hole where the wires come through. Well that hole doesn't have to be in the center, it can be off set. If that won't work would you consider turning that light 90deg.( vertical ) I know that would work. Then all you would need is the regular latch we all have for those doors.

What about flipping the door so the hinge is on the bottom and the locks are on the top?

You need one of these with a tube of good sealant due to the space you have between door and trailer.

Normally I'd say "duct tape" fixes everything, but from looking at your pictures - is a bungee cord an option with your awning pillar? Baling-wire and bubble-gum don't seem to be candidates here.

Getting real - our outside BBQ has a "T-latch", maybe you can find/install one that would work?

Isn't that what kids are for?

3'senough's solution seem like the best fix to me.
