We are having minor problems

1 The Dometic fridge will not open properly, it regularly refuses to open when the buttons are pressed down, once open I can see the catch is working when the buttons are pressed, any suggestions please.

2 We have twice had the locker door on the nearside, under the fixed bed open when towing, both times the door was locked in place before leaving, and opened after 30 odd miles, shut it back in place and didn't open again, any suggestions please.

Regarding the fridge, it has probably dropped a little on its hinge pegs or the top hinge peg receiver has become damaged and the door is loose on the hinge.
If the first option then the fridge has to come out to take the door off and put a washer on the lower pin, or it may just be the screws holding the pegs have worked loose and need tightening.
If it is the second option then it is a new door.

As for the lockers, they need to be really pressed hard near the latches when shutting or they dont catch and the lock still looks like it has done its job,,,but it has not.

1.We had a similar problem,got it fixed by the dealer (under warranty).At first he found nothing wrong with door until we suggested he put some weight on the door to simulate food/drinks etc.
2.Make sure nothing inside the locker is touching or can touch the lid.These door or lid catches are not too strong.- can you not get to the catch after the bed slats are lifted.

Hi,
You nearly had to wreck our door to get it open.Occasionally the door opened first time but you couldn't tell beforehand when this would happen.
Have you tried taking everything off the door (butter,bottles etc) to see if door still sticks closed
