Argosy window side catches (?)

On the sides of my 76 Argosy windows, outside, are (maybe) nylon (or poly?)strips with notches that hold the windows open. Some of these are broken and I would like to replace them. I have looked at Inland RV and Vintage Trailer Supply, can't find them Does anyone know of a source, or have any intact ones that they will not be using?

I bought those from Airstream at a rally. They have them for about $5 each. Any dealer should be able to sell them.

They are easy to replace, though it does require removing the interior knob, drilling out the rivets holding them to the inner window frame, and a rivet gun to reinstall the rivets. You will also need a very small allen wrench to loosen the set screw on the knob. Piece of cake.

What you are looking for is called "window position guides."

They are in our web site parts sale list.

They are part numbers 34855 and 34869.
