    • Welcome to the Escapee forums! Are you speaking of the main entrance door into the RV? Do you have any way to getting inside of the coach? If you can gain entry through a window or something, the door latch assembly can be taken apart from the inside, if that is the problem. Can you tell if it is unlatching?
    • It has now been nearly 3 days and the poster has not checked back in. 
    • If you are willing to go with Linda's suggstion, RV Trader has a View 24G in Oxanard, CA. If you were to put $30K as downpayment, keeping $5k in reserve for any needed repairs, it will mean a payment of about $575/month. I think that you might be better served if you take plenty of time and do a lot of shopping before you make any decisions. I suggest you start by checking out some of these RV Trader listings, several of which do fit into the budget that you have. I am a firm believer in sticking to a budget that you are comfortable with. It is very difficult to enjoy an RV if you worry about how you will pay for fuel and groceries to use it. We bought a gas powered coach in 1998 that we proceeded to live in fulltime for nearly 12 years and had a great experience, in spite of some experts who still tell us that we did things all wrong. With any used RV it is inevitable that you will have some repairs and service needs soon after purchase so don't leave yourself with no means to pay for such things. Be sure that you do have any used RV completely checked out by a competent RV inspector or by a good mechanic & an RV tech, just to be sure that you don't buy a rolling mistake, but also don't be talked into spending more than you comfortably are able.  If you know someone with lots of RV experience, you might do well to have them go with you when you take your first look as that could save you from paying for an inspection on something that won't pass. If you wish, send me a private message with your email and I'll send you a good check list to use when looking. If you know someone with lots of RV experience, you might do well to have them go with you when you take your first look as that could save you from paying for an inspection on something that won't pass.

    • You can't wire the power inputs to accessory switches, because they draw a lot of power.  If the inverter has an on/off input, as many do, then you can drive that from any switch-only power.  That uses very little power.  The other option is a high-power relay.  Whatever watts it is rated for, divide by 12 and that's the amps you need to supply.  
    • My inverter doesn't look like it was installed at the factory. It has no indicator lights any ware  except on the inverter itself. Definitely aftermarket . But you know I wonder  if I could wire it to the accessory switch ? You got me thinking. Hmmm.
