Storage. Handle/lock

Leaving for a month and handle wont open on last storage door . All parts needed for tow are in that compartment. I now must drive the tow car. Finally find a thinner young man in Alabama who consents to crawl through from opposite side and pull out the parts we need to tow. A call to Thor . They no longer have access to that part.
Now what do we do. We are original owners of said 2012 Thor Challenger. Are there places that carry parts for older rvs?

A picture of the inside and outside would help, or if you have, the make/model # of the latch. Have you asked a locksmith?

If you can take a good latch off. A local machine shop should be able to make you one.

Good luck

Neighbor liked my electric locks and converted his including entry

Took him a couple days to do all of them

Bought them from the big store in Indiana that Lazy Day's purchased

Worth looking at

Have you lubbed the lock, pushed in on the latch as you unlock?

Hear's a Amazon search for "RV Motorhome Compartment Storage Baggage Latch"
Does this look like you latch?
