Needing glove box latch

New to AS and this forum but looking for help locating a replacement for the glove box latch on our 290. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Smile Lubricant?

I don't know how thoroughly your glove box latch doesn't work...
Mine stopped latching right and a squirt of powdered dry lubricant (graphite I think) fixed it!

Do you have a picture of the latch?
I'd start with inland rv or vintage trailer supply, you can probably find a replacement

I wouldn’t be sending any money to Inland RV. They have had some problems.

Did some research and I'm not the only one having trouble with inland, by a long shot. Looks like Andy retired last year and the new owners took over and had trouble keeping up from the get-go, and covid probably didn't help.

Hopefully they can dig out of it, but until then I don't recommend inland, bummer

Try out of doors mart, or high sky rv

Should be the glove box latch form the 73 to 80 chevy and gmc trucks.
Look at LMC truck . com for the glove box latch.
