Thanks Chris & Andy
I did find the whole mechanism online for around $470.00 which I though was way to much. Chris thanks again for all your help. I will scavenge the backplate if its at all better then mine.My wife is a goldsmith and works with various casting companys. Maybe I can get one cast in stainless or sterling silver at that price
. I have decided to hold off on the floor until I see your project, so I have a better understanding of the construction. Also I will bring more photos and info to help. The plywood has been down for years, its just 1/8 sub floor overlay. The trailer sat on an angle and all water ran to that side from the roof vent. In the meanwhile I have lots to do. I will be adding new gaskets and recaulking all the windows.
Thanks again guys
A great site, there was nothing like this when I was doing the canned hams
