Need new latch for Engine cover.

Can someone give me a lead on where to order a new latch for my radiator cover on my Class A? I have looked at a couple of RV parts web sites and didn't seem to see anything that would match. This one the knob just turns and doesn't turn the locking mechanism. I have attached a picture of the latch and any leads would be appreciated.

Picture is fuzzy but this appears to be a 1/4 or 1/2 turn latch such as made by companies like Southco. You might also try looking at

Surprised it just turns unless the internal stop that limits its rotation is broken, or the flat on the “tongue” is wallered out and the tongue just slips on the threaded shaft.

I took the latch with me to a couple of RV stores and showed it to the salesman. One store didn't know anything about where to get it. A different store knew about it but didn't have anything in stock that would work. The third store had it in stock now when it gets warm I will need to set some paint to make it half way match the paint and put it on. Don't plan on going anywhere until sometime in Feb, so hopefully don't loose it between now and then. I am getting a bit forgetful where I put things now days.
