Good afternoon,
During our most recent trip our main door handle would not allow us to open the door from the outside. We can open from the inside only. I took the inside plate off and found a plastic piece that drops when opening from the outside but not the inside.

Not sure what the piece is for, but I can only assume there is a spring missing. I assume I need to replace the whole assembly and on Amazon I have found a lot of them.

Any suggestions or recommendations would be great. Our unit is a Thor Chatuea 23c.

Thanks in advance,
Dave
