We are in the process, or should say was in the process, of getting our Scamp 5er ready for a long weekend starting this Thursday 5/19/2016. Yesterday the wife was working inside the camper giving it a good spring cleaning while I was outside waxing. I went back this AM to wax the top between the top hatch and the AC doing so through the hatch. Imagine my surprise when I could not open the door, knowing I did not lock it I wrongly accused my wife of doing so but was quickly corrected about that. Retrieving the keys and turning the lock did not work, it still gives the appearance of being locked.
So has anyone else had this happen and if so how did you get in, much less what was the fix? My thoughts are:
- Take the acorn nuts off of the camper body hinges, which should allow me to remove the door and have access to the inside door handle.
- Short of it being broke I will probably bite the bullet call Scamp and order new inside and outside door handles.
While I'm at it I will probably order new hinges too, might as well spruce it up a bit since it comes of age this year (21). Any advise and or thoughts and sympathy comments are much appreciated and welcome.
