Inside Latch Broke!

So, after a Colorado blizzard put the stops on our first camping trip if 2016, a few weeks ago, we have Rocky out next to the reservoir (which is very full).
The plastic latch to open the screen door broke but I can't find a replacement part at Camping World or Amazon...anybody know a source? (Pictures will be posted)
Other than that, we are thrilled to finally be camping!!Click image for larger version

I found this on Amazon after the screen door latch broke on my brand new Grey Wolf 23DBH. I'm working with the dealer for a new on as it should be under warranty but I wanted a backup plan..

Thanks, Shawn but do you know if those have that inside part with them? I don't see it in the product pictures. (My picture shows the piece that broke.)

Seems I remember a discussion on this handle about this time last year.

**HERE** is the thread.
Looks like Atwood makes this one exclusively for Forest River.
Part # is included in the link to the discussion.

Don't know if it helps, but that's an Atwood logo. Maybe contact them directly. HTTP://askforatwood.com

We ended up getting our from the dealer, at least they had it but $30.00 was hard to swallow. We put a grab bar on the screen door so the grands stopped using the plastic handle to close the door.

Thanks, everyone. I was near my RV dealer yesterday so popped in to check out the new models and he had one in stock for $22. (The entire section so I'll have a few spare parts, now.)

I really like a 5th wheeler he had but then saw the gross weight of 12,000....way too much for my Tundra!!
