NEED HELP or Information for 5th wheel

Now that OPEN RANGE is no more, we are finding it hard to get items for our fairly new 5th wheel....like the plastic register to put a new one in where the old one is broken. We ordered 2 but they seem not to last very long from traffic, and not quite the right size, does anyone have any ideas.
The other problem is: how do you fix the flush handle? and the flush area of the toilet which holds the water until you flush, it is moving over from the right to the left not sue what is going on with that? any help would be appreciated.

could sure use info and help.

When did they cease to exist? I just did a search and Open Range 3X is still made. Owned by I believe by Highland Ridge RV.

Our '02 Dutch Star had plastic heating grates, I went to Home Depot and also Lowes and found metal ones that were the exact same size and close on color. They also had shut off louvers so I could shut the heat down a little in the bedroom

Jayco did buy Open Range, and they formed a division called Highland Ridge to continue the Open Ridge line. Info HERE. Although Open Range has been bought out, the line will apparently will continue on.

could sure use info and help.
If your registers are on the floor, I suggest you replace them with metal instead of plastic. Metal registers will hold up better if you're going to be walking on them. My guess is your registers are 2"x10" or 2"x12" (size is designated by the size duct they are designed to fit). Home improvement stores sometimes stock those sizes, but they are hard to find. Try a big RV dealership like Tweety's or PPL Motorhomes who sells parts online. Make sure you get registers with a damper so you can adjust air flow if you need to.

Additional info on the brand and model of the toilet is needed.
