"hood" latch
« on: June 30, 2014, 10:30:18 AM »
On our 2005 Winne Adventurer 37B one of the hood latches has stopped disengaging fully and the other is tough. I can get it to pull the plastic latch up a little but not fully enough to release. It does not seem to have any adjustability. The linkage rods are in place. the keepers are there and clipped, and they do not appear to be bent.

Any ideas?

Can someone post some images of theirs so I can see if a part is bent??

Examine the back side very carefully to see if the fiberglass has come loose or partially loose from the metal frame. Many have come totally off.

Thank you. can you be more specific? I am talking about the little lever and latch device that is on the inside of the panel which swings down and forward so I can check my oil and so on.

Probably what you have (which is fairly common) is like Paul said - there could be part of the metal mechanism that has lost its bond to the fiberglass causing a latch not to work.  Examine all parts of the mechanism, especially where it involves any fiberglass.
