Thor ACE 29.2 2013 screen door slider

anyone know where I can purchase a new plastic slide for our screen door? Ours is cracked and has yellow (bought the rig new in 2013), I took measurements: 7 1/2 " by 8 3/4" with the bottom right corner notched out to accommodate the screen door handle. I have search Amazon, Ebay and can't find one to fit.
Thanks for any suggestions!

I checked the door on my 2014 ACE 29.2; the door is made by Dexter. I ran a google search and I think that this is the part that you may want. Give them a call to confirm that it is the correct size, but it looks like it fits several of their doors. Here is the link:

Dexter Door 4401-36 Smoke Philips Screen Door Slide

Hope that helps, Have a great night.

I found the slider I needed at: PRVParts.com: Motorhome Accessories & RV Parts Online. They ship free if ordering in the US. $16, so my first one lasted four years, I ordered two!!
Thank you Longmire for your assistance!!

Hello "lenkerb",
Thank you for the web site reference as was looking for the same item. Now will have to figure out how to install. Hopefully, will not have to disassemble the door & remove screening material (which a cursory look would seem to indicate). Thanks again!!

we had to shave some of the material off the top and bottom of the slider...didn't have to take the door apart to put it in! I order two as they seem to last maybe four years.....

Yes, was also contemplating 'shaving' edges as a way out (or in as it were).

But also thinking that I'd risk rendering the thing too loose to stay in the track.

Maybe flex the aluminum rails & the slider just a bit too??

Will play with it when it arrives.

Should have ordered two also - next time

we held it up to where it would slide and just took off enough, it doesn't fall out and it slides pretty easily. It is not flexible so be careful!!!
