Where to find out of production parts

I need a control knob for a Vanguard VP10 heater in my '91 Excella but nobody makes or stocks them anymore. Must be a common problem given the long life of these trailers. Any ideas on where to find old parts?

I found an owners' manual online which I have attached. Perhaps you can contact the manufacturer at the address on the back.

I also found the installatin instructions on page 6 interesting, including:

WARNING: Never install the

in a bathroom (VP10 only)
in a recreational vehicle
where curtains, furniture,
clothing, or other flammable
objects are less than 36
inches from the front, top, or
sides of the heater
as a fireplace insert
in high traffic areas
in windy or drafty areas

(emphasis mine)
