    RXP upper storage compartment won't stay latched...?

    Hey guys, well the top storage compartment above the hood (red door) of my RXP will not stay latched. The lake I ride on is not all that calm at all during the day and so it constantly pops open due to hitting waves. I then close it and shortly after it will do the same. I have adjusted the big mushroom studded head a few times but it only ends up working for an hour or so and then the problem picks up again. What do I need to do to fix this so it stays closed?

    Just loosen the jam nut under the mushroom headed stud where the latch latches to and move it a little up or down (adjust it) and tighten the jam nut. You need to do this before you stress the hinge area and the hinge/lid interface cracks.

    Well I moved the mushroom headed stud down (worked for about 5 minutes of riding) but I did not loosen the jam nut and then tighten it back up! I will do that next time. Thanks alot

    UPDATE: Nothing has worked so far.. I don't know what you mean by the jam nut because all I see is the big mushroom headed screw.
