broken screen door handle

Help! We have had our Roo 183 for 4 seasons now and the latch/handle for the screen door broke. It was very flimsy plastic and we were very gentle with it to avoid this very issue. We went to the RV dealer to get a new handle and they informed us the handle was discontinued and there was not a similar one to replace it with. Yikes! Has anyone recently encountered this problem? I did try searching the forum and could not find a similar situation.

Camping world is supposed to have these. Made of metal instead of plastic.

Mine broke last year and I easily found a replacement on eBay.

See if this is the replacement part you need for your screen door. We broke ours too. Easy to replace and I ordered two so we have a spare.

The piece that broke is actually the inside door handle. Any thoughts? I have tried looking and am not able to find this handle.

Ours broke about four months ago. There are plenty of replacements for the outside handle, but none for the inside handle. (Which is the part we broke). The long plastic piece that trips the outside handle is usually the part that breaks. Called Forest River parts line and a replacement does not exist. The screen door was made by Atwood. Called them and they don't have a replacement either. The new model trailers use a different screen door. Everyone's suggestion was the same , "from the inside open the little sliding door and push the outside handle down to unlatch". This solution gets real old real fast. If anyone comes up with a solution, let me know.

This is exactly what happened to us! Yes, opening the little slide door is OLD!

Our handle is the same.
The grandkids broke our handle last month. The dealer we got our trailer from had lots of those in stock. Only problem is you have to buy the whole kit, inside and out and they charge $29.00

Broken Screendoor Handle

I would call FASTEC Industrial (800) 837-2505. They were very helpful when I needed some RV door parts.
Good luck,
Scouter Bill
