Just wondering if anyone else suffers with this problem on their Nuevo... I read a while back that a lot of the Series 2 Nuevo's have suffered with poorly adjusted habitation doors resulting in them not closing fully unless accompanied by a good slam! Ours falls into this category, it'll shut OK & I've got the knack of shutting it first time / every time but it does need a fairly good slam which I'm worried is not good and could cause premature wear on the fittings... I'm sure it shouldn't be this way? how are these doors adjusted and how would one go about correctly aligning this or is it a job for a professional like Auto-Sleepers?

We have the same problem with our Windsor, so will be interested in any responses.

My previous MH (not an Autosleeper) had the same problem the door really needed a lot of force to close, I eventually traced the cause to the gas strut type damper fitted between door and frame being to hard to depress and stopping the door closing easily once removed the problem was no more. That manufacturer still has an ongoing problem with habitation doors delaminating and I wonder if the excessive force needed to shut the doors has exacerbated this problem.
I must add that my present Eton has a similar setup but happily the door closes with a gentle slam. smile!

Hi CC
Have this problem too, I close it with a quick push from about 6" away, no other rattles or problems yet, maybe the previous ASOC owner sorted them all out.

Merry christmas Boaby

The problem I have had on a couple of occasions is that the habitation door has not locked when key fob activated and we had been away from the motorhome for some time luckily no one had tried the door otherwise we could have been robbed it was when I noticed the locking system did not click I found that the live connector had come off the terminal possibly due to slamming the door. After the second time this happened I crimped up the connector and forced it on the terminal which I hope has cured the problem.

Same issue as above. This time is was caused by the central locking contacts not quite making contact. A bit of contact cleaner rubbed on the contacts cured it, but still check every time to make sure. It hasn't happened for a few months now so I would say that in our case it is the regular use that keeps it working, like a lot of MH related things

Seems like a few people have issues with the habitation doors...

I've had a look at ours but without taking off all the plastic shrouding on the inside of the door I can see no visible way to adjust this? Does anyone even know if it's possible to adjust yourself or best entrusted to Auto-Sleepers? Think if we are that way during our travels we may get it booked in for them to adjust it, surprised the previous owners didn't get it adjusted under warranty, it's not down to wear and tear as the vehicle has only covered 12k so guessing it's been like this since leaving the workshop, read a report by MMM that said this was a common problem with the series II Nuevo's and as a result caused deterioration of the door so would like it corrected rather than just put up with it as I understand those doors are around £500 a pop to replace covermyeyes

Hi Mr Cruz and DuxDeluxe
Happy new year when it comes, had a squirt around the hab door latches with some rocket 40, seems to have eased the latches a wee bit and improved the closing of the door, I had a problem with an older V.W camper years ago and found the rubber seals had swollen a wee bit at the bottom half of the door, replaced it and shorted the problem.
Checked the hab door rubber seals around the bottom area, it feels abit spongey, maybe replace it after the winter, could be road salt is affecting the rubber seals at the hab door?
Rambled on abit there.

Cheers the Noo
