As for opening the locked door (which they always freeze in the locked position) there are four rollers that hold the door closed. Take the appropriate allen cut it down to fit and a 7/16 socket and remove the top two rollers and the door will open. Be careful when you open the door that the two loose bars don't fall against the coach and scratch it. Then open the back panel on the door after cutting the two wires separately and then you can get at everything. When I get prices I will update everyone.

Randy thanks for the offer if these new ones don't pan out I'll let you know and as far as the white hair who would of thought we would be the old timers?

Butch,

If you can please add some pictures of how you got the door to open, that will surely help someone in the future. I have updated the thread title to better reflect what you encountered. I have also made this a STICKY.
