Also did the other door before it broke, I don't believe that these will break again.
I was told by Forest River that the part is no longer available and no replacement is available, no help from them at all. I was not a happy camper, Trailer 2 years old and no replacement parts available.
You should call LCI directly, I almost positive that they are the supplier to FR. On the frame of my screen door there is a model # and serial #, there two types that I know of the one with that like 3" round knob on it to open the door is the old one the new one is a short piece of plastic about 6 or 8" square and a exposed handle, they might be able to help you get the part, they may even have it listed on there parts list that LCI products are on... I have found FR to be wrong on a lot of parts, so I now try to go directly to the manufacturer..
