Basement door latches

Hi. I have a few busted door latch handles on my 1997 bounder. Where can I find replacements for those?

I think these are fairly standard :

the good news, Amazon has them

https://www.amazon.com/TRIMARK-Reces.../dp/B01MQOPI3B


The bad news:

To replace them, I had to disassemble the frame of the compartment door. The two bolts that secure the latch to the door are on the inside of the frame..

Ok that is helpful. I do need a few of those, but also I need some of the unlatch handles with the lock cylinder that you pull on to open the doors.

Take a look here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TP14MTU..._t3_B01MQOPI3B

FYI: I had a few f these break - both in the same place - the pin that acts as a hinge. Replaced that with a bolt, and they work again.

Plunger Latch separates from Rod

I have one basement door where the rod that hooks to the latch keeps falling out. Then I have to open the adjacent door and push the latch in with my finger while opening the faulty door. Is there something I can do to keep the two pieces connected?

I actually have this exact same issue. the metal rod that hooks to the latch is bent but doesn't have enough "tail" to stay in the hole. I struggled to get my door open due to it not being a pass thru. luckily its a basement storage i dont use much or have much use for due to it being small, but i broke the handle trying to open it. so when it warms up im going to be looking at fixing it. I might have to find new rods or make some myself.
