1993 Pace Arrow Plastic Compartment Latchs Break #Fix#

I am the owner of a 1993 Pace Arrow Class A - 34 foot motor home. Since purchasing it 5 years ago, I have had multiple compartment latches snap off. I tried and failed to find replacements and ultimately made one. Lesson learned! If you fabricate a replacement, don't make them from plastic like the one that broke off in the first place! I was trying too hard to make the " same piece" that the latch originally had. So my recent fix before hitting the road was a simple 4 inch long piece of tube steel cut at on end at 45 degrees, and with holes drilled into them for the rod and spring catch screw. Place the new catch into the old spring and frame. Then place a self talking screw into the predrillrd holes to catch the spring when pulled back. Reassemble back onto the door the way the old one came off and test for any adjustment. Simple fix to replace a part that Fleetwood apparently no longer supplies. Happy Travels! See y'all on the road!
