Replacement for plastic entry handle

Has anyone replaced the Newmar entry door plastic handle. I probably can buy one from Newmar but always look elsewhere first.

There was a recall on the plastic door handle over a year ago and if you call Newmar with your coach # they should send you free a metal handle. There are 2 styles and they will ask which handle you have. It has to do with the upper part of the handle as to which handle you get.

If you are talking about the 1" diameter acrylic rod with top and bottom brackets, I replaced my aged and checked handle with this. I cut it to length, polished one end, wire in a LED, now when the porch light is on, the handle glows.

My original acrylic handle (2002 DS) broke recently. Replacement online $39.99. Local supply (TAP Plastic, Seattle) selling 1 inch acrylic rod stock @ $5.65/ft. Fifteen minutes with the Dremel. Done.
