My last class C had a Dexter screen door and a latch handle in both sides and a slide panel to provide access to the main door when both are closed. Nice. The new class C has one latch handle on the outside. I don't really like this set up. I've been searching for a changeover kit that has the inside and outside latch handles but so far I can't find anything. Is there such a changeover kit available?

Our Dexter handle broke on the outside. We now have to open the slide an reach it to open the door.

We have not been able to find a Dexter handle to replace it anywhere...

I installed one of these Camco door openers and have been happy with how it works.

Dutch. Great suggestion. Looks like just what's needed. I'll do an update after I install it.

Yes, please let us know how it works for you. It's a little expensive for what it is, but cheap enough for what it does... [emoticon]

Well Amazon delivered the Camco screen door opener yesterday. I followed the directions, except for dropping the hole down 1/4 of an inch on suggestions from the Amazon reviews of this product. The thing certainly isn't fancy but it works as intended. Now for the acid test. We're heading out to Scusset Beach State Reservation here in Ma. for four days starting this coming Thursday. We'll see how it can handle the action of the RV front lines.
