Basement Storage Strikers

Does anyone know where I can get a basement storage striker for my 2005 8360. The strikers are made of stainless steel and are kind of "L" shaped with a square hole for the latch to engage. I've tried almost everywhere and I'm at a dead end.

Please help.

Bill

Basement Latches

A couple years ago I bought 3 of them from Boat & RV Warehouse in Hamburg, PA.

I lost one due to the screws rusting, and it just fell off, so I got a couple spares.

If you continue to have problems finding them, I'd photograph one of your good ones, with a tape measure CLEARLY in the photo, and post it on the regular Motorhome section of these forums.

Basement Storage Strikers

None of the links show what I need. I have a picture on my cell phone that I can send to anyone who might know what I am talking about. Just post an E-Mail address and I will send the photo.

Thank you all for your responses

Bill

Bill,
Went out and looked at my compartment door and it is the same as yours.
The striker your are looking appears to be something that National RV had manufactured by a supplier for them. They NRV had many sheet metal MISC. parts fabricated by outside sources. This part could be made real easy from aluminum extrusion using one of your good striker plate/ angle as a pattern.

Boat & RV Warehouse

Send the photo to Boat N RV Warehouse in Hamburg, PA - Bet they have it.

BTW, keep an eye on that rust. It will start eating up under the undercoating. Summer before last, I spent probably 4 or 5 hours per day, for 15 days laying on my back grinding out the rust - then re-priming, and ultimately put on undercoating.

Probably will have to replace one tranny cooling line - all from an 8 hour drive in snow, then not being able to wash it afterwords.

Don't make the latch out of aluminum - it will break or wear fast. If you are handy, you can buy a short length of 1 1/2 thick web stainless angle, and make a couple yourself. To make the cut out, just drill a couple holes the right distance apart, then take a Dremmel tool to cut hole-to-hole on both sides.

Where the screws go through, our holes are slotted, so you have about 3/8" side-to-side play so it can be adjusted.

When I was cleaning up the rust, of course I took off the latches. When I put them back on, I drilled and taped the holes and used stainless screws, instead of the dumb iron ones that National used. There are quite a few iron screws all around the basement openings, and eventually I'll replace them all with SS fastners.

Blue Ribbon & Richard S.

Thank you so much for the replies. The picture that was posted is the part that I need and up to this point have had no luck finding. It looks like I'll be making my own part from some stainless L channel like you folks suggested. I have some machining experience and will try to do it with a minimum of personal injury and bleeding.

Thanks again...You guys are fantastic!!!

Bill
