2015 24R Shower Door Latch?

Can anyone tell me whom I might contact to obtain a replacement latch for the shower door in our new 2015 24R? (It's one small little dark brown catch with one screw) I've tried several RV parts places - in person and online - and nothing matches what's there. Thanks in advance for any help!

PS - always double check that the shower door is latched before you head out!

Contact FR directly. I also had to have one replaced--but several months later it broke again on a terribly bumpy road. I had added a towel bar above the toilet and took a bungee cord and connected it to the door hardware to keep the door open when traveling. No more problems.

This works great. Cut a dowel slightly larger than the space left when the glass door in the closed position. Then gently wedge it at the bottom. You have the right length, when the dowel is raised slightly off the track, making for a tight fit and easy removal.

Thanks all - interestingly, Forest River is sending me a new shower door latch and an additional matching towel bar (we wanted another one to match the one that came with the RV) for just under $30. ($10 for the shower latch itself).

I also contacted SEA (Shower Enclosures America) who makes the shower enclosure and they are sending me one for free from California. At least now, I'll have a spare!

Suggestion - you can get a length of 1/2" wooden dowl from Walmart. Cut it a fraction longer than thevwidth of the open door. When traveling, insert the dowl between the door post and the door and press it into place. That should secure it nicely for travel.

Hello

How i can contact direct with FR ? They doesnt have contact info and sent you to dealer only. Closest dealer to me, only Lazy Days, but i never will visit those ******* again. First time after i asked them to replace all my coolant clamp, they were very rusty, and after 30 miles i lost my coolant again. When we returned back, they told me some crap about transmission problem and this is why it must be removed. They scary me and local cummins dealer fix problem just in two hours. lazy days never changed upper clump and never even opened engine cover in bedroom. Next story was happens this year in middle of my trip to Yosemite, close to nothing and sure it was 4th July, oil filter wasn't tight enough and we lost 50% of oil. So i dont will spend a singe dime with those bustards any more.

Is any one know how to order parts direct from FR ?

574-206-7600 is the main service line.

Might get a quicker response from SEA (Shower Enclosures America) however. With the Rally this week and the follow up, those guys are going to be swamped for a couple of weeks.

Just to clarify, the number I listed is for Motorhome parts as this is a motorhome sub-forum.

I only mention that, because I don't know what a "water tank storage compartment" latch is?

On the right side, just before rear axle, I have door, look like normal storage compartment, only without any handle or looks. If you will check on the bottom, you will find latch this style


It was two those latches and two latch keepers, I lost two latch keepers and one latch. So for now this door is open. behind this door is located sewer tanks, black and gray and normal water tank, water pump and etc.
