dznf0g,
I guess you missed the boat. When I bought mine at AS and they had all three as of Nov.1 this year. The fan exhaust vent has a retainer, that is stainless as well, for the flapper.
They are very nice, I must say!

Really. Huh, I was there on the 3rd of Nov and the only one out on the shelf was the H2o cover. I didn't ask since I already had mine....maybe they were in the back.

My stove vent has no latch . I have a piece of anti slip stuff for rugs and shelves which I roll up and stuff in there to keep it closed while in transit or storage.

Hey, Bluto, how about a pic of the vent latch. Is it something easily added?
I had heard that Williams was no longer an AS dealer. I wonder if the guy who made them for Williams is now making them for the AS store????

I purchased the SS heater cover from the AS online store and after installing it, found that it wouldn't close. The heater vent (metal insert wth hot on it) cut out was about 1/2" higher than the original. So off with the new and back on with the old. I will grind down the bottom lip when I have the time and that should make it fit.

H2O cover? Mine was a little off as well, but not near 1/2". I just had to "adjust" the lips on the "hot" screen and it fits fine. Still have to kind of finagle it around a little when closing due to the slop in the hinge mechanism, but it's fine.

AS Store prices...

POI....what the store is selling is noticeably different than what I got from RW, as I understand they were/are direct copies.
$100 more expensive,(3) also.
I don't believe RW is still a dealer, but do have parts & service available.
This was a discussion on another thread.

We must have just missed each other as I believe I pulled out during the wee hours of the 2nd. I must have bought some of the last ones. I have tried to post pix on here before and just don't seem to be able to do it. I guess I'm just not computer or camera savy enough. Sorry! Maybe someone else will post a picture of their ss flapper latch.
The little latch is made the same size as the plastic counter part but is just a strip of ss metal with a small 90 degree bend on the tip so your finger can move it to latch or unlatch. It is fixed next to the flapper on one side only with a small rivit. I think it would be difficult to install without removing the entire vent.
Did you see that AS also sells the ss replacement covers with spaced rivit holes all around so a person only has to add rivits to have a fancier cover.
I went with the plain Jane covers for my trailer, but can see how a fancy door with rivits all around could look, well,,,, fancier.

I pulled in about 2PM on the 2nd. Too bad, that would've been fun to meet ya. I was at the Terreport till Saturday morning getting a couple sections replaced.

So much for my communication skills, LOL. I should have said the furnace cover. I have the hot water heater SS on order from the on line AS store, but hasn't arrived yet.

My furnace cover fit fine, but IIRC that is the one that came from Williams. Robert Cross (above) says they are different than the AS store ones.

It would have been good to meet you also. As a matter of fact,
a group of us who met while in the waiting room (total strangers) were there for repairs without our better half(s) and decided to find a bar/resturant and have dinner together. Come to think of it, I don't even know if they are members on this Forum.
The balk of things that I needed done was warranty related, but I still dumped a small bundle in that place. As you know, I'm sure, it's not very hard to do.

I was running stag as well. I had to take 3 vacation days while DW worked. I was good this time, only bought Glare wax and overhead door struts for my lockers.

Hey, Bluto, how about a pic of the vent latch. ...
This is a pic of what JC is currently stocking. There is a single latch on the left side as seen here.

It doesn't look like it would be too hard to make something similar, but it would be easier to pop rivet it from the back side with a washer to reinforce the front. Or a small stainless machine screw with wave washer for tension and a lock nut.
