No, but TA will work on yours.
My metal latches have plastic covers that pick up all kinds of road junk and TA cleans them better than anything else I've tried.

Tried TA. Worked good for road grime, but my concern is the spotting on the plastic. This picture is after using TA. Is this something others that have the new latches have encountered? Click image for larger version

Are you sure the plastic isn't supposed to look that way? If it's bugs, they sure seem to be well distributed. They seem to have spotted the sides parallel to the air flow the same as the front facing sides.

It's not road grime or bugs. It's on every area of all things plastic on all four latches. The camper lives in my driveway, so I checked it about every day and this is something new. If you zoom in the first picture, it looks like mold, but so far I can't clean it off. It almost looks like it's IN the plastic, if that is at all possible.

That's why I thought maybe it's supposed to be there. Are you sure they were pure white (no spots) when you bought it?
