What part number are these latches and what was your source?
I too am tired of the plastic latches failing.
Thanks.

Doc,

Camping World, we have one 2mi away.

But A-Zon carries the same one for a bit more $$$...

Both come 2 to a package.

Rosie is heading to the spa for a few days... Complete go-thru, new batteries, convection microwave, and ceramic toilet. And when she's out, she'll have new foam in the cushions waiting for her, and new screen windows. Whew... That is all.

CanAm tuned the Hensley hitch and replace a loose screw jack that would extend by its self. Also purchased some tire chocks, leveling blocks, landing pads for the stabilizers and aspire water filter. The 15" Michelin "P" series tires have the trailer sitting level behind the car.

Also added load resistors so the blinking turn signals no longer interrupt the trailer brake application by the Prodigy RF brake system.

Original 14" spare still in place as bracket would not accept 15" tire assembly.

......"replace a loose screw jack that would extend by its self."

Homemade on the road fix, back when this noobie Hensley user thought it would be a good idea to lube the jack threads.....NOT.

The metal valve stem cap is pop riveted to a hose clamp that fits in the allen head set screw to keep the jack from turning....lesson learned.

A cigarette lighter adapter with two USB ports on it (1 for iPhone & 1 for iPad) that goes into the outlet above Rocinante's dinette. Helpful when we're camping without hookups and don't want to fire up the inverter.
