Window hardware broken

Hello all, I'm new here to the fourm but not to camping. I have a 1989 Coachman Catalina 265FK the I just bought, it is in VERY good condition however the one jalousie window next to the front door doesn't work because the linkage is cracked and broken off of the windows. does anyone know where I might find these parts? I've searched the web but no luck yet. I'm trying to avoid replacing the entire window.

Thanks in advance!

I know that the gear box is available from RV dealers. I suspect that the linkage could be had from them too. If not, maybe it is time to make your own?

Colaw RV Salvage, Carthage, Missouri, is where I would look.

An RV service center should have parts in stock. You can probably get them directly from Hehr Window too. I have replaced nearly every part at some point, with my previous campers. Some parts replacement require complete window removal just because it is much easier than trying to hold parts together in a vertical situation during assembly.
