Trimark paddle handle came off
I have a Trimark 13532-01 luggage/baggage door lock on my 05 Discovery, same as on many Winnebago coaches of same era. One day, the paddle handle just came off as I opened the bay door. I ordered some bushings and associated little metal "inserts", but I can't figure out how it goes together. One end of the little insert is fluted/knurled, and the other end is smooth. It looks to me like the knurled end is pressed into the plastic bushing which then mates up with a hole. One side is easy to get in, but then it appears that the side, the pin must be pushed in from UNDER the latch handle, almost impossible to do. Am I doing this right? To make matters worse, my new replacement parts look just like the parts that fell out when the handle fell out, so I am at a loss as to why the paddle fell off to begin with.
Any ideas would be appreciated. It does not appear that taking the entire 153532-01 apart would do any good (I am sure I could find many parts they didn't need if I tried that trick!).
I bet that other Trimark luggage door locks are built the same as this one, so if anyone has any experience with other models, please chime in.
