My only thought is to go on line and state exactly what you want, Someone will have it and answer you. In your search engine write " I need a handle for my etc " that has always worked for me....

Good Luck, Crazic3

My rig uses the 5500L from RV Surplus with notches required by you to fit. It saws easily with a hack saw.

I was in at Ron Hoover RV in Donna Tx last week and they had a few on the shelf in parts. They did not say Newmar but I think they were an exact fit.

Question Is the handle broken (if so do not bother reply) or is the problem it's not lighting. (in which case I can "fix" it for you, 2 parts from Radio Shack)

FYI, If you can't find a light bulb the color you want to light the handle, a little paint on the end of the handle before you put it in will do the trick.

I would recommend replacing it with the steel replacement available from Newmar. As nice as they look, the acrylic handles have a tendency to weather and crack. If you are relying on it to support you when it does break you can be injured.

Do a few searches on this and other forums and you will find stories of injuries and, as I recall even a lawsuit.

I used to use my handle and the side of the door frame to hoist myself up when I was on the road. Then one day just walking up the stairs the handle literally came off in my hand in two pieces with very little load!
