Customer Question
I have a 1997...

I have a 1997 Damon 30 ft motorhome. The windows all have these red things that lock the windows shut. Over time they are all breaking. Where can I get replacements for them. I realize they may need to be drilled out. PS I'm in Canada

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '97 RV?

Don't know, but it is the 30 foot model

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'd like to, but haven't done anything yet

O.k.,it may be difficult to locate the locks you need for this but one place you can try is in the link below.They offer several window designs and should be able to help either obtain the locks you need or may be able to direct you to a facility that has these locks.

You can also try camping world in the link below as they are usually most popular for finding these parts.
