Am I the only person with a toilet compartment door that is marked by the times when on a backward slope it has banged against the oven door or grill compartment handle.
I think I have found the answer - @2mm black plastic ferrules . I bought 8 on eBay for £1.65 and wish I had thought of them before. They fit perfectly, look great and I think will stop further damage

They look like a useful addition to the tool box. I wanted something like this to cover some fixings to tidy them up. Were did you use them on the cooker/grill?

My cooker has two bar handles (12.5mm diameter) that extend the full width of the oven and grill doors. They are fixed to the doors by spacer tubes which are about 15mm from the end of the bars, which are not rounded.  When the door opens the first thing it hits is these handles, even when the oven is closed.  I simply slipped the ferrules over the four exposed ends of the handles - job done - now padded and won't dig into the "wood". Being black they match the oven decor.  Buying 8 was marginally more than 4 so I have a spare set.

Can I suggest that you amalgamate my first post with the recent response to Askit? Then folk have the full information including the source to buy the ferrules and change heading to "Avoid damage to toilet door by Cooker handles"

You could always just make sure that your van is just parked level, then no problems with the toilet door.

We are careful but - it happens - believe me.  And if you drive off with the toilet door not latched properly ......
Prevention is better than cure!
