Keep door open

Hi all, I have a 2021 Montana 3121rl and the door has no latch to hold it open. On Windy days it wants to swing back and forth. What do you guys do to hold your door open? Thanks.

I put one of these on my unit. Seems like every RV I have had before this one had a door holder. It’s an easy install.

That looks like a good idea, I'll have to get one. Thanks.

Bruce,

A bungee cord will also work for those real windy days.

We took a pair of the magnets that hold the basement door open on the curbside on the newer units and since you have a 2021 unit you should know what I'm talking about. We've been in some really windy conditions and the magnets hold the door open with no problem.

Great Idea. Where did you buy them?

The magnets might be like these from Trekwood...

I bought my magnets from my local dealer that I bought my unit from. I purchased 6 pair of them for any future use that I might need them for or for putting double pairs of magnets on if needed. So far I have not needed to double them up. Since my unit is white I have white magnets.
