Two places to look that would be the best bets for that. Colaw RV Salvage in the midwest..........Missouri I think and Arizona RV Salvage. Both have websites. Check on there for some used parts or even E-Bay. Let me know what you find and we can go from there. All follow ups are included in our fee.
