    Solitude Cargo Door Adjustment

    I have a couple cargo doors that donít close tight enough, I can see light coming past the seal when I look from the inside. I donít see any adjustment points on the latch or strike plate. Has anyone here adjusted their Solitude cargo doors?

    Yes. I just bent the lip on the door frame where the latch strikes (the metal plate on the gasket tells you where). Bent it in for tighter and out for looser. Does not take much. This is what the dealer did on a door that was to loose. Maybe a better way and I would like to know it.

    Now for a warped door, as far as I know that is a replacement "fix". I have tried to straighten a couple of my slam doors, but they just bend back.

    I tried bending the strike but it only worked for about a day. I was thinking about putting a screw through the frame behind the strike to keep it from bending back out but I’m not sure what I would be screwing into.
