    Magnetic Door latch

    Install magnetic door holders instead of latches. That way all you need to do to close the RV door is swing the screen door to catch the entry door and pull it closed. No need to go down the stair just to close a door

    Re: Magnetic Door latch

    I did that very thing. It works fine until the wind gets over about 12-15 mph. I left the catch on when I installed the magnetic so if it is breezy we use the original catch.
