outside door latch

We have 2018 Montana 3721RL. Apparently they dont put on outside door latches anymore. Can I put one on? How to keep door open, it always shuts in the wind.

Welcome to the forum. You can easily add a latch on the outside without any negative effects. You can check Amazon for something like these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Easy. Just drill small pilot holes first to avoid Fiberglass cracks.

Door holder

I added one for my door. Drilled pilot holes applied silicone sealant then attach. Don't over-tighten.

Yup, I put a latch on our entrance door as well.

In addition, I put one on the front hatch door under the front end. The original metal latch thingy was not only rusting, but was hard to operate and was marking up the trim on the door. Stupid design.

It took some looking around at various hardware stores, but we installed magnets with double back tape 'bought separately' so as not to have to drill holes. 3/8" x 1" x 2" one on the door lower left outside corner and one on the rig back to back.
