It was talked about in the link below.... It might work but from replacing all of the side windows in my old 73 FC I have my doubts about being able to slide the pane of glass in or out of the frame due to the gasket the pane sits in.

On my 88 WB, I have had to get in twice. I have a wire coat hanger that I use...just elongate the hanger without unwinding the top...making a flat end about 4 inches wide...so you have a long triangular wire with the hanger loop on the end...

Slide the 4" flat end between the sliding windows on the door and hook the window latch with that flat end...You will need to pull really hard so be careful not to put to much pressure on the windows while pulling...pull straight back... I believe I needed to remove a screw in stop to allow opening the window more to reach in and open the door...

Don't know if the 88 is the same as yours?

Rod,
What I have done is to take a piece of windshield wiper...the stainless steel flat rod that runs the full length of the wiper blade. I remove it from the wiper and bend the flat to an almost 180 degree turn in the end about 3/4 inch from the end. Stick it behind a licence tag to bend it. I bend a right angle on the other end about 1 inch long to hold and twist with.

Then, I use a 1/4 inch thick piece of plexiglass (or wood) to open the gap between the two windows in the door. Then I slide the 180 degree end between the windows and up to the front window latch and pull the finger lever (or paddle) back to open the window. If you push the window closed while doing this it relieves the tension on the latch so you can open it and use the other hand to slide the window back and open.

Then I have to stand on the step (which is withdrawn) so I can reach in the window and manipulate the lock or door paddle. I have had to reach back and open the large side window behind the door so I could get inside. You may have to borrow a kid for that part!

Good luck! Then take these items and hide them in the outside refrigerator compartment for future use.

How did he do it??? Drill holes, big hammer, jaws of life?

What went wrong and how to prevent it would be invaluable for others on the forum.

Now you need to disable the door lock on the paddle latch,and just use the dead bolt.
Theres a thread or 2 about how to do it.

Our latch clip broke on our first campsite. Showing a friend our coach and door would not open. Karen luckily was inside and opened the door.
The plastic clip Al speaks of broke. You can get the clips at any parts store, linkage clips. I replaced it with metal. I also eliminated the push button lock and put a screw between the two lock parts and solved the problem of my door latch hanging when opening.
