Thumb Knobs?

On my 2012 Cedar Creek 36 RE, we have the soft top, on the screen/storm door. The small thumb knobs that hold the soft flex panes on are breaking apart. Never even touched them. There are I think 8 total, 4-top, 4-botom. I have 4 left in one piece. Anyone else experiencing this? Guess I need to call my dealer or is there a place to just order them. Would like to have a dozen or so. Thanks for any help. Steve

Yes, I've experienced those little knobs breaking also. When I attend the rally in August I plan to visit the factory to see if I can get a pot load of those little buggers.

Yes I have also had this issue on my 29re. First time to take the panels off I had 4 of them break off.

My 2010 has plastic retainers w\phillips head screws holding them in place. I needed to replace two, so I went to my local hardware store. They had sturdier substitutes which work fine. I don't recall how much, but they were cheap.

I think this is what everyone is talking about... Can not walk due to an injury so walking out to look right now isn't happening. $2.41 each seems kinda of expensive for what it is...

I've ordered these from Home Depot. Flush Plastic Screen Clips (8-Pack)-L 5766 at The Home Depot I don't know it they will work or not but at least it's an eight pack for $2.54.
