Our SP can be difficult at times. I attached a cable to the upper left latch and when it won't open I just pull the cable. It's a suspenders/belt type deal.

Thank you Mr. Walters, I will add your suggestion to my Monday list. I had thought about using driver and passenger side, but I have battery cut offs on both sets of batteries and I think about the rear panels being either on the battery side or the filter side. So you can see where my description came from. Thanks again!

Richard,

Had the same thing happen to mine, and enlisting the help of Ed Wimberley, WOG's own "Mr. Fixit" showed me how to get it working.

With a helper pushing hard on the side of the door that is not unlatching, see if the latch will release. If you get it open, there will be two posts attached to the top of the frame. One on the street side and one on the curb side.

With a 1/2 inch box wrench or socket, loosen the two nuts holding the posts. Tap with a small hammer and gently slide the post assembly toward the rear of the coach and tighten down.

You'll have to experiment a little by opening and closing the door to get the post in the proper position. Once you get it, take some brake cleaner and thoroughly clean the latch assembly in the door. Clean it with an old toothbrush and then lubricate with silicone lube.

I believe this will work for you.

The main problem with the SP is the tailgate does not get opened very often.
I bought one once that had not had the tailgate opened in years.
i had to spray PB Blaster into the latches and "rock" the tailgate for a week or so before the latches released.
They were simply stuck for non-use.
