Looking for Screen Door Latch

I have just recently purchased a 1991 Fleetwood Bounder, 28 foot unit. I have been working through many problems, since this one was obviously ridden hard and put away wet.

I have a screen door with a 1/2 inch or so indentation about 2 inches long where there must have been some kind of latch. On the door jam there is a metal plate in that area, suggesting to me that this device might be some kind of magnetic device--but certainly not sure. There is nothing left of the original device so I have no idea what brand or item I am looking for.

Can anyone help with identifying what this thing might look like and how I might find another one?

Thanks, Kenn

Kenn, welcome to this great site, you will like it. Look to the right of your post, and you should see a box that has door latch and hardware dite, contact them. If that fails, try Sullivan RV Sales & Service site. Theyhave an 800 # you can call and explain what you need. If your unit has electric steps, ther is a magnet switch that goes in the jam area. Good Luck,
