Older Class A Luggage door Latches

I broke one of the plastic locking pieces on my 2005 Allegro Bus luggage door latches. I went to various dealers including one that was a Tiffin Dealer. No one carried them and no one could find out how to order one. While I was looking through the net I happened to find this company:

Motor Home Latches (Guaranteed for Life) RB Machining is a full service machinine shop.

They carry the correct latch ( I know because I ordered three of them and when I received them today I replaced one to make sure that it would work) The latches have metal locking pins instead of plastic and they are lifetime warrantied.

This company is a bit different they do not accept credit cards. I ordered three of the latches earlier this week and the made it from california by today. They came with an invoice so I was able to make sure they fit before I sent them a check. I am going to send them an order for new latches for the rest of my doors and then keep my old ones for ready spares if someone needs one at a rally.

I have the same issues with several of my latches on my 2001 39Z Bounder. I've planned on making my own aluminum plungers for the latches but removal of the old latch is an issue for me. The door mouldings that require removal seem to be glued to the door panel sections. Was that the issue with your coach doors? I am hoping that my heat gun will allow moulding removal. Thanks, Larry R
