 I'm having trouble  With the top pin in the door jam. Going after the  rattles and fond the top pin was not Laching so i adjust it, then closing the door 2 or 3 times the pin moves so i put it back and get it as tight as i can, work the door and it moves again?? What I'm i doing wrong?? Or what trick do i need to do? Tks Bruce  2003 Monaco Windsor  38PDQ

Is the pin screw loose again?  If so try some BLUE loctite.  This may or may not be enough but what I would try first.  Red loctite is much stronger but requires a torch to break free if it ever needs to be removed.

Search the files and topics on adjusting the door.  There is a file that covers the procedure.  Maybe Monaco_Door_Adjust.PDF? There are TWO types of Trimark doors.  You have to first identify whether yours has the bronze bushing or not.  Odds are, based on the age, it does.  If the bushing is worn, then it must be replaced….and then, you adjust it.  There was, I believe, a detailed print and PN for easily fabricating a replacement.

I called Trimark and the tech told me that you could not identify the different assemblies without taking the lock or latch assembly apart.  I had read that, odds were, mine was the newer design and did not have the bushing.  I had it adjusted. It did not have the bushing.

The most common issue is the latch assembly moves or “wears in” and the handle will not release and you can’t get out or in and you have to disassemble it from the inside.  Several YouTube videos. Lots of info on “Trimark RV door adjustment”

Here are a bunch of files on doors. There are a couple that shows how to adjust and repair.

I'm not exactly clear on how your door is built, but if you are talking about the large bolts that stick out from the frame that the latches connect to then mine are designed to move up and down a bit.

This is a video link buried in one of the files. I added a file with the link in it for easier future reference.

IF you have the large bolts from the frame as I do, then a few wraps of good electrical tape should help the rattling noise. I have chased rattles for years and mostly solved them. Using the round sticky back felt pads in various places has solved most of the issues. Latching the deadbolt while traveling helps as well.

I'm envious of those that have some sort of inflatable seal.

Try this one.  It is, to me, the most complete.  The tech that did mine said it was great and he had done several.

Bruce,

Are you having trouble with the door or the frame the door closes into?  Seems most of the advise given is for the door itself..... 

I believe the "pins" that the door latches to on in the frame are actually designed to "float".

The top pin is designed to move so that if the latch gets slightly out of adjustment, the latch will engage.
