Make sure you are locking both locks.

Thanks for replies!

Wow, great group here! Thank you.

I shall add this to my warranty list as suggested. We have a few more odd little things that have come up (the door to one of the storage/dinette seats has come completely off, little things here and there.) We've had a trailer before so we know these things happen, after all, the house is moving so one should expect things to come loose, but I didn't expect the door to open.

Again, thank you for your suggestions. We'll check the deadbolt and screws and all the things you have suggested and when we find a Jayco dealer in our travels we'll tell them about it (we travel 7+ months/year.)

Thanks again!!

Same here. Happened twice on a long trip recently. Then I started using the deadbolt and that solved the problem. It hasn't happened again in 1500+ miles.

I always lock the deadbolt and we have never had the door to open.

I make the DW run along side and hold it closed. So far, this works!

..Or

Use the deadbolt!

This happened to us several times with our 22FB, not while driving, but while gone from camp for the day, or when in storage, although we always locked both locks. Had the door rehung under warranty, and I don't think it has happened since, but we now always fold the grab bar over when leaving for the day or longer.

I forgot to lock the deadbolt on our way to Florida last month and my door popped open and I didn't notice it until I was pulling into a truck stop at 3am..... No clue how long it was open for.

some of you said you fold the grab bar over in front of the door, has anyone ever wondered what would happen if someone came along at night and did that while you are asleep?
