Drawer latch sunseeker

Hello,
Anyone know where I can order the drawer latches for kitchen drawers in a 2018 sunseeker 3010ds?

You can find them on Amazon. The ones FR uses are 5#. I would suggest going at least to the 10#

An alternative, which I have considered, is going to a magnetic latch where there is nothing to break.

The link for the “grabber” catch, in post #2, is good for replacing the latches that Forest River uses. As for 5 pound or 10 pound pull, I think that’s debatable or up to personal preference. I put a 10 pound replacement latch on a small bathroom drawer and it was way too hard to pull open, so I changed it to a 5 pound. Perhaps the latch strength needs to me matched to the size of the drawer/door. Sloppy alignment during the installation at the factory could also affect how hard the latch grabs.

Sofa drawer

I just ordered a set of 4 of 8# for the drawer under the sofa. The one I'm replacing is a 5#.

The original latches broke on high-use drawers on my Wildcat. Techs replaced them all at Goshen. Then these replacements broke on high use drawers. I replaced these on two drawers with magnetic latches from Lowe's. No problems since.

Thanks for the responses. I think I’ll try a magnetic re-placement and see if it holds up.

I bought a box of these and replaced the plastic ones as they broke.
