Screen holder thing....or something like that

My new Windsport is missing about 1/3 of these "screen holder things"....making every screen rattle during travel.

Anyone know what the official name for these things are called?...and where I can order some in a timely fashion?

Note that picture has one complete holder and the other is missing.

If the windows are n=manufactured by Hehr International you might try contacting them.

You might also try calling Thor. They have been known to send folks parts to perform their own warranty repairs.

We just purchased a 29M ourselves. So far so good. Going on a break in trip this weekend to test everything. Call thor customer support, have your vin# ready, they have been extremely helpful with all of my questions. They can proboly send you the parts.

Congrats! We did our "shakedown cruise" last week...so far everything is good except the outside cable hookup is not connected to any TV and we can't find the solar-ready wires anywhere in the battery compartment or under the bed....and of course these window screen holders LOL!!!

Good luck and enjoy!

Where to find hehr parts

Those don't look like the clips on our Vegas windows, which are made by Hehr, but we were missing a bunch of clips as well. I found an online RV shop that sells lots of small RV windows parts (including Hehr screen clips): www.pellandent.com. You might find your screen clips there too.

Got curious and had to look at mine. I don't have what was referenced in the photo. I have what looks like little plastic latches in the corners of the windows. I will try and get a picture.

Finally went and looked at mine, none missing. No wonder I never noticed them, they are small!

Did anyone ever find a source for these other than the dealer? I'm after them too (top retainer part).

I see these part numbers mentioned below from another post ... but these look slightly different.

The part numbers are parts number 0370435, 0370455, and 0375758. One number is the top piece that doesnít twist, the other two are the two bottom pieces.

Sorry...my dealer hooked me up with a new one so I never got a part number.
