entry door latch

My exterior door latch broke this weekend. I could not close the door or I would have trouble getting in. Had to take a screwdriver to slide the slides to unlatch the door. I have a 86 25' sovereign. Anyone know who or where I need to call to get a new one?
thanks

The company that made that lock is out of business.

We have developed a lock kit, some time back, that works great.

I just took my front and rear door latches apart to grease them up so they work a little smoother.Mine's an '86 Argosy,Maybe its the same type latch,I don't know. I did learn the front and rear are different sizes on mine. If you take your latch apart,look at the (pin) that holds the part you pull to open the door.I noticed it looks like that pin could move out of the grove and make the pull thing loose or,break off. Anyway,you may just have to reset or recenter that pin if thats the problem. Good luck! Brian
