Thank you for including me. My wife and I are retired nurses living in a 1976 Minnie Winnie. There are some things I could use some help with. The RV has a sideswipe and the door latch is broken. I can't buy a new one. Can anyone tell me if I can fit a door from a newer model or even a brand new door in the opening? Also when I first turned on the heater it blew out a huge cloud of smoke and shut down. I pulled out a black and crispy wasp nest and wasps. Since then neither the heater or blower work. Everything else on the 12v system works. Where do I start?

Oh, by the way, I am an amateur photographer and will be posting photos of our travels.

Thanks again,

Lee

Thanks, David Craft. It's a Coleman Model 4225A 12v igniter or pilot light. It's something in the electrical system I'm pretty sure. I'm going to pull out the exhaust and make sure I got all the wasp nest out. I'm sure finding a door that fits the space won't be too hard. One more question for everyone. Can anyone recommend a good awning that works well in high wind?
