Welcome to the forums!


FYI: If at all possible photos are always welcome and helpful in identifying issues. Are you referring to the arm that raises the window or maybe the 3 position supports on the sides? If so you can get them here:

3 Position Window Kit SKU:8284KIT - $15.90 : ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart (3 position kit)

Windows and Related Parts : ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart (arm supports, L & R, 3 position L & R, etc)

They have many other parts you may need also.

Also try:

If you are looking for RV salvage parts for larger items try:

Sounds like the arm supports, but check the links I posted and see if they look like the photos there.

I understand what you're looking for. It's the part on the bottom of the window that the latch catches in to hold the window closed, right? There's two of them on the bottom of each window frame.

This question has come up before, and two things.

1. It's a steel part, not aluminum. (They rust. Badly. Experience talking here ).

2. No one has replacments for them.

Someone suggested bringing a good one to a sheet metal fabricator and having a new one made, or getting a piece of steel and cutting your own. I'm not sure what the other person ended up doing.

The rivets gave it away. After spending weeks cleaning all 8 of them, I became intimately familiar with them...
