Luggage Door Catches

Has anyone replaced a luggage door catch. The piece inside the door that catches on the u-shaped metal bar? I am missing one on a 2011 Berkshire 360QS, just wondering which one to buy? Thanks.

Remove it, take a picture of it, send me the picture and I'll help you find a replacement. I found mine on Amazon, but I had to remove it first to see the differences of similar types.

Or


$10 on Amazon to replace the whole latch with one that is exactly like the OEM.


Tough call. It would be a no-brainer if the lifetime warranty part included the whole housing, or if it was no where near as expensive.


With 10 doors, each having latches on both sides (10x2=20) and 20 x $31 = $620 to retrofit,


vs



$200 to retrofit with OEM grade.


Tough call.

I've purchased the complete latch previously and just removed the plunger to replace the broken one but it's still made of zinc that will likely break again. Thought I'd try the aluminum plunger this one time. I've had a total of 3 different plungers break.
