I need a source for repair parts

While I greatly admire those that preserve rigs from years gone by, mine is barely 5 years old. Understandably, older systems have more difficult parts availability. Why is it so hard to find what I need? To go to the AS dealer or even local RV shop for a small part adds the middleman cost. I've had limited success going directly to Dometic, Atwood and Thetford. These things break and chasing down the small part of the week is a pain. There has to be a parts house that has it all. Help? Thanks.

The most recent searches have been the quarter turn plastic latch for the Atwood furnace and the Dometic freezer door hinge housings and springs. Tiny little things with big price tags and only a couple suppliers.

if you want to go the internet route, there are many competitors and their prices get adjusted fairly often so I suggest doing a price comparison at time of purchase.

I have had luck with:

Good work. Let's keep the list going.
Use a dealer getting Airstream to drop ship the item to you.. Although sometime more expensive, I find it fast.
