We recently bought a 2017 Thor Outlaw 29H to carry our CanAm, and dog !
Ran across a bit of a problem with the entry door handle/latch mechanism. It broke on the inside. The "plunger" that slides in and out of the door frame broke.
Was there something we did that might have caused the break?
Can just the "plunger" (for lack of a better name) be replaced, rather than buying an entire assembly?
I found the entire assembly online. But there seems to be two that are available. A "60-0650" looks exactly like what we have. There is also a "60-1650" that supposedly is an upgrade and will fit.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
Thank you in advance !!!!
We went with the 1650 just because we couldn't chance our pups being stuck inside with us on the outside.
We have had ours for two years and the mechanism seems much more secure and Hardy than the OEM one. We didn't wait for the original to break. Bought ours on EBAY for 115.00 (from someone in Elkhardt...)
