Aussie Sierra Owner

Hi Everybody
Just bought a Sierra 28RKSS here in Oz and looking forward to some serious travel around this great country. Looking for advice on obtaining a spare part which seems difficult to find here in Western Australia. There is a plastic "thingy" which is used to hold the door open and mine broke in high wind recently. Is there anywhere in US which specialises in Sierra parts?
I'll be most grateful for any help.
Cheers

Terry

Welcome to the site.


Is what you need on this page?

If so let me know and I can help get one to you. If not post a picture of the broken one and I will see what I can do.


Mike

Hi Mike
Thanks for the info. The JR Plastic T 40534 6" looks like it might be the one. I've attached some pics and the measurements (approx conversions from metric) are:
the "rod" 6" and
the left hand bracket approx 2.95" x 1.73"
Do you know if the RV Center will sell online and post overseas?
Just for the record I have a 2006 Sierra 28rkss towed by a Ford F250 7.3 litre diesel a fantastic wife of 13 years and a great bichon frise puppy of 1 year :-)
Cheers and Happy New Year!

I see one in Ebay, in case you're interested.... seller ships to Europe, so Australia wouldn't be a big stretch.
Not sure I can link without giving you my Ebay account, so to play it safe I'll just offer the item number for your search - Item number: 220187448812

Send me an address to ship to by a pm and I will fix you up. Those are easy to get here and I will send them to you. Someday you maybe return the small favor.

Hello Oz.
Welcome to the forums.

I replaced the cheap plastic door holder on my precious TT with a metal zinc plated holder. It was a lot stronger and held until I sold it.

Looks like Mike will take care of your needs.

Happy New Year,

Excellent.... What's the RV situation there Oz? Lots of campgrounds and people camping? I have relatives in Great Brittain (Wales, of course) and they camp but the campers are really quite small by our standards... no screens on windows either, apparently they have no black flies, mosquitos, etc. which seems so odd to a Canadian.
