Looking screw thing for fride lost!!

Somehow we have lost the screw thing with the rounded handle that keeps the fridge doors and freezer doors shut when driving--We have a 3811 with a Sam Sung with two fridge side by side doors with the pull out freezer at the bottom--I can't seem to find this crazy thing anywhere??

Trekwood.com may be the only place to find one and you may have to talk to them on the phone.

Should be easy enough to "build" another one. It's just a threaded knob with threaded shaft screwed into it.

I'm pretty sure this is the knob:

Man, for 31 dollars I'm thinking I could make several. Couple of nylock nuts and a piece of all thread or even a 6" or so bolt. Even ordering the knob I have a hard time seeing 31 dollars, but I'm cheap I guess.

Trekwood thinks everything they have is gold plated & it’s priced accordingly. We get an extra knob when we bought our 3811. There was one holding the fridge shut & when we got home to load it up, we found another in the drawer. Maybe we got yours. Lol.

Call Tiara in Elkhart, they will sell parts to customers for Keystone Products.

You know per "Murphy's Law" if you were to purchase that $30 one, the day it arrived, you would fine your missing one.

We use a small Velcro strap on the frig handles. The freezer door will stay closed on its own.

Cut a pc of all-thread. Use washers a nut to secure. Put electrical tape on washer against door to keep from scratching the door.

Posting an URL is easy. You need to put "tags' at the front and end of the URL. The Tags are [url] and [/url]. It should look like this:

[url]www.montanaowners.con[/url]

and will display like this:

I just ordered a part from Trekwood after trying my dealer. I canceled the dealer part because they said parts were slow coming from Keystone and it wasn't in yet - and ordered from Trekwood. So the very next day the dealer calls and the part was in.

Dealer was $5 and $17 shipping. Trekwood was $45 (for 2) and $15 shipping. So Keystone = $10 for 2 and Trekwood was $45!!!!
By the way, the dealer couldn't find a part number so he took a picture. Unfortunately it was of the wrong rig and part, so it was the left hand part instead of the right hand part......................
