Thank you, Corey for posting the link and the pics as to how you repaired this. It's so great when everyone shares information so willingly and helps another person out. We really appreciate that about you and everyone else here too.

Jen and Dee too!

I would suggest you check the screws when you have the door open.

Thank you, Albert Rose, for your information as well.

I had to google your location because we are planning on visiting 'Bayfield' ON this fall, (hopefully departing soon) via Maine, NB and NS along Trans Can #1.

What a great location you must live in. The gateway I suppose from NB to NS?

Excuse me, correction PEI?

I see it's a wildlife area. I hope you will tell us more about this area, fellow Canadian, as it will be the first time we, my American husband and I, have visited this area.

Where should we stay and what must we see?

Hope to hear much more from you!

Jen

Oh, I can picture you in goggles. Ever ride in a sidecar?

Here's a Prevost page where the author amusingly points out that it's "how we open the door" that's the problem: http://www.prevost-stuff.com/entercoach-art..html

See, Prevost uses the same ****** door handle. Prevost has issued a fix. For the paltry sum of 450 smackeroonies you can have one of their new and improved handles. Part numbers are available on POG, but if we put our heads together, I bet we can find the source.

Opening your coach this way over a period of time WILL result in a damaged handle or handle mechanism. If you open your coach this way over a period of time, you can just about guarantee that the handle will fail. It is constructed out of cheap, stamped metal of unknown origin.----- so this cheap, stamped metal from who knows where- is what you can expect from a zillion dollar preevost?

Hey for that amount I could buy a Brady seal and a half!

Who do they think they are fooling with this correct hand position on the handle/latch? Are they freaking kidding!!!

I might expect it from a zillion dollar Prevost, but I expect a whole lot better from a Blue Bird! Ernie, for 450 bucks they'll give you a new and improved pig metal handle of unknown origin!

Could you picture me trying to teach my five year old how to properly grasp and open the door handle?

The problem Jennifer is that it can only be done properly while holding a glass of Veuve Clicquot in one hand!
