We have a 2010 Kingston on order andare lining up all the modifications we'd like to make. One thing that always give me trouble is opening the outside compartment doors. It seems like after they sit for a while they stick shut and I have to use a putty knife or similar to get them open. I'm assuming this is a problem for all Crossroads products (and probably most RVs) and not just Kingston. So I'd like to hear from anybody that has a late model 2009 Kingston (I'm assuming there is little change on the 2010)....have they installed handles now or are they still the "stick the key in and try to pull it open" type? I know the compartment doors are different now. There are many RVs that have a small pull tab installed right on the lock. Does anybody know if there is a problem with them or why doesn't the factory just add them? Assuming there are no handles, anybody know of a cheap source for those pull tabs that fit around the lock?

I go around twice a year and spray silicon on all the rubber gaskets on the storage doors and the entry door and the doors will not stick. So far it has worked great. I have thought about adding the finger pulls and may at some point. Below is where I found them but there may be other sources. by: Hunter11
