Help locating repair part to fix slide

I have a 2007 Tropical T350 with 3 slides. The kitchen slide has a retractable sliding wood slatted door that covers the wire chase when the slide is open. This sliding door broke.

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement?

Picture is from another coach to show the door closed.


Here's what it looks like now:


What's left of the slatted sliding door:


Thanks

Just a thought here but what about some sort of cloth cover to obscure the hole instead?

That piece acts like a rolltop desk. You really cannot use anything to cover the hole because the electrical and plumbing for the slide moves into that hole. There is a bracket that attaches to the piece to move it. The wood piece sits in a guide rail,top and bottom and slides it along with the movement of the slide. I am in the process of repairing mine.

Take it to a Trailer Repair Shop.
It anyone knows anything about Slide-outs I would think that they would.
I had a problem with my slide-out years ago.
The only place I could fine was a Trailer shop and they fixed it in no time.
Just a thought.

If you have the wooden slats, just glue them to a piece of canvas and put back in place.

I would try a piece of Lauan 1/4 inch that seems like all it is with notches cut in them for decoration I have had to reattach mine the bolt came out of the bracket as Tom said it rolls like a rolltop desk in a grove I doubt you will ever find one unless you got one in a salvage yard

I appreciate all the responses. I know it was a long shot to see if anyone knew of a drop in replacement door.

I was planning on making a piece that fits over the hole and put insulation on the back side. Just have to remember to remove it before putting the slide in. One more item for the checklist.

If anyone knows of an RV salvage yard that may have old National RVs, please let me know.

Thanks again.

Check Visone's in Kentucky. They hav quite a few National rv"s. I was there 2 years ago & the pasture had a lot of them. Most are burned but they may have one. Tom 07 Pacifica

I just finished repairing my little door. It is quite simple if you have all the pieces. The bracket that goes from the slide to the door ripped a piece of wood out. I took the whole thing out and thoroughly cleaned the track,top and bottom. I replaced the door, reversing it and drilled a new hole for the bracket, I also added a sheetmetal piece around the hole for strength.
O hope this will help with your repair. Tom 07 Pacifica
