'63 Carefree awning part

I have a 1963 flying cloud with a care free awning. One of the screws with the plastic handle (like a water faucet) has broken off. Does anyone know where I could find one.

Any rv dealer or e/bay, it is standard item, if stuck spray pbblaster or any penetrating oil then use vise grips turn back and forward be careful don't break off, it will come loose sooner or later. I have heard some use torch but in my opinion not a good idea as arms are aluminum. I have never had 1 I couldn't get out. Ps they come in dif lengths but all same thread size

My local ACE Hardware had them in the Hillman parts collection as did my local NAPA. Lots of auto parts and hardware stores will have a section with pull out drawers with all types of fasteners, springs, bushings, etc. The threads are just standard 1/4 inch threads. You should not have any trouble finding the parts. I replaces all the knobs on my Carefree.
