Default 95 WB Generator Door - Broken Latch

Well today was an experience I hope I never have happen again. The generator side door would not open, it had a broken handle latching rod. The left side would function but the right was a no budge. So after a call to Randy, Mark Bragdon and Butch Charpentier, I was able to get it open by taking a long pry bar from underneath and sliding it up from the center of the coach down the side of the radiator fan motor (left-hand side of the compartment w/lying down) and forcing the rollers down.

The villain was the handle rod behind the sheet metal with about 25 screws. The rod snapped off just outside the handle assembly housing. I called my DR friend and he came by with his wire welder and welded the rod back together. For some reason BB ground the rod down to a thin taper at the handle assembly. Randy said that was where they usually snapped, it was pretty rusty at that point and the prolong pressure of opening/closing that door just caused it to snap off. I sure am glad that Santiago came to my rescue with his welder.
