Default Storage Bay latches

I have a 2003 Gulf Stream Yellow Stone and one of the latches for the storage bay has broken. Does anyone know of any place that these are available?

The last one I bought was through Gulf Stream I believe and if they do not have them, they will tell you who the supplier was. But I have found out that those door latches when they break it is because of slamming of the door compartment breaking a actuating lever made out of pot metal (cheap). So what I done I went down to a hardware store and bought a strip of metal and made me enough out of steel to replace all those pot metal actuate levers. Just get the broken park and trace it on the new steel metal. Go to a grinder and grind it into shape. You will never have problem with the locks breaking again.

Hey Raychez
I did think about making some since it was so hard to find replacements. With the replacements I only found plastic ones?

I did contact vision but they would only sell the latches with the doors. They said they did not have any loose latches.

For now I just switched the latch off the propane door, color doesn't match
