Striker plate for entry door

2016 39MB, been having issues with my door latching easily, I have adjusted and will be ok for a while then hard to close. Checked today and appears door is rubbing on the striker plate. Long story short, I need a new striker plate, where would you go to find a inkind replacement?

Are you sure it is the striker plate. Many of us have had issues with the door coming apart and then causing problems with opening and closing. We had to have the door replaced twice third time we took away the friction hinges.

Door is good, my striker plate is bent, primarily to dead bolt is striking the striker plate when door is slammed shut. ( dead bolt knob turns very freely when using the door release from the inside, causing the deadbolt to move to the locked position. When door pushed closed , dead bolt hits striker plate like a hammer). I have tried to straighten with partial success so that it is useable but I Need to change striker plate. Thanks

I have had a problem with my striker plate and its 2 replacements since 2013. Part of the problem is that there is really nothing to hold the screws in place, and the other is that the deadbolt is loose. You are luck it hits the striker plate as we had it get by the striker plate and the door would not open. Luckily, my wife was in the trailer when it happened, as I didn't have a key with me.

Your situation sounds a lot like mine. We had to have our door replaced after it was broken in to. To get it to latch you have to slam it fairly hard. Otherwise you have to pull the handle out and then close and release the handle. One thing I have noticed is the spring inside the latch is very stiff and I'm wondering if this could be the reason for my problems. Any ideas?

I had a similar problem with our 36RL 2017. I found the factory installed the striker plate with the taper on the inside of the trailer, when we closed the door the door latch would not pass the striker plate because there was no taper on leading edge of striker plate. I reversed the striker plate and enlarged the hole in the plate for the lock to set, no problems now with the proper taper pointing towards the street side of the trailer.

This is what works for us. We never SLAM the door shut but instead close the door while pulling on latch until first click (hooked)). Once it's "hooked" pull / push on door with latch still pulled until locked. Works for us. Used to slam/smash door but realized that it only bends stuff.
