Mblue, I got through all the putty, and thanks. Ugh! TG, OK, pretty basic stuff. Gotta track down a rivet remover. And yes, two kids who wham! about three hundred times a day. hahaha!

Putty is gone now, thanks, and Twinkie, thanks for the help. I understand what you are saying, and I do not have a rivet remover with me.

Good advice on any repairs!

I can do more than imagine, I can commiserate! The same exact thing happened to us on a camping trip. We were in our 1976 Argosy and we had the same problem. My hubby actually cut the screen out of the back bathroom window and climbed out and let us out. You have already been given great advice. Hubby had to remove the whole latch assembly and replace the broken part, but everything got put back together and there is no fear of being trapped anymore! Not a fun experience for sure!!

All you need is a drill motor and the proper sized drill bit to remove the pop rivets. You will need new pop rivets and a rivet gun to replace the drilled out rivets.
