Lower Cargo Door holders

In watching many you-tube videos, I have come to realize many other coaches have little spring holders to hold a cargo door if it opens upward.

SO ..... I'm wondering if any Jayco Class C owners are using something spring-loaded that they installed for the purpose of holding a cargo door open in the upward position......???

Hello Boudreaux, I'm with you!
I own same model and year as you. Have not yet installed latches on mine either however do intend to. Was thinking of magnetic catches on at least the left side, that way I'd not have to worry about being latched to slide out wall and break the latch or bend the storage door. Might just go ahead with all magnetic catches so they all match instead of mixing two types. Both available thru Camping World.

Hi Stoonie. Have you determined if you will screw the latches in place, or use 3M molding tape....??? Watching to see what you do...!!!!

Hey Boudreaux,
Not sure, magnetic type have exposed mounting holes. Will appear as though something is missing if I don't install screws. Hmmm, something to ponder.

When the storage doors are fully open upward, there is very little weight or pressure to hold them open. All the weight or pressure would be downward on the hinges (I would think). I feel that I should try the 3M Molding tape first, then it doesn't hold over time, I will drill holes.

I feel sure the 3M tape will hold, for a while at least. That tape holds car molding on for years....

Exactly! Adhesive will do quite well on it's own.

I'm looking for something to hold the cargo doors open too. Something more durable than tape and that is hidden when the doors are closed like struts. There are a bunch out there. I'll try a couple and let you all know what I find.

This is what I use Robot Check

I put two screws in each one with a little geocel caulk.

I used 3M tape to hold the spring latch to the side. It works like a charm. no extra holes for water to get in.

under the slides i use prop rods but they get in the way when putting in bigger items.
