Window knob

I finally got her home, four months after purchase even though it was only 20 miles.
Starting to go through it. Would anyone know where I can get a replacement window knob, crome, that is used to push the window open, there is one each side of the window?
Like an iceberg, this ain't even the tip, I'm sure, but I look forward to "bringing her up to speed".
Thanks in advance.

Do the arms look like the photo below? We also have a 1979 but 31' version. If so, we bought a bulk pack of cabinet knobs, cut off the head of the bolt and put 2 knobs, one on each side of the threaded rod that was left. The originals that were in our AS were plastic and we replaced with these.

Stump - the knobs your looking for are still available but only in grey plastic. You can sometimes find them on Ebay and maybe someone will post some of the salvage dealers that are out there for you.

The grey plastic ones can be ordered here:

Welcome to The Forum by the way....
