In 2015 we bought a new Itasca in Michigan. A few months latter the Trimark door latch broke, we went to an Itasca dealer in Florida and got it replaced under warranty. In a few weeks it also broke. Then we went to a small RV parts place and bought a new latch, but a different make. It's not as comfortable to use, but it is still working.
If I don't forget I'll look and see what make it is.

Do you know what part of the door assy failed? They are notorious for the latch iitself breaking because they are made from a zinc alloy, some call it pot metal. It is weak compared to steel or Al. I would not by the same p/n because it will likely fail again. I have replaced mine 3 times. After the first two times I realized the poor design and instead of spending another $100 plus on a new door assy I fixed the broken latch with a steel splicing the broken pieces together. The .050 thick steel was much stronger than the zinc alloy.

Hello Gjac,

What failed? I have no idea. Its missing parts for one and the handle lock no longer works/missing. Only the deadbolt works. I can only open the door from the out side. This was my Grandfathers, so Im not sure what happened. Im sure he told me but it was more then 5 years ago. The Rv sat for that long and am wiping it back in to shape

My latch failed long time ago, It had a small pot metal tang sticking out that broke off.

They are easy to take apart. If the dead bolt works it is the latch itself that probably broke. Once you remove the screws you can see the inside and will probably find the latch in two pieces. Some people on here have actually had that latch machined out of steel by a local machine shop which will last forever. The other thing that fails is the white plastic cam actuator that actually opens the latch when you pull on the handle. My guess it is the latch itself.

I looked at the latch that we used to replace the TriMark and there is no name on it. But if remember right it was not a TriMark.

Someone one on here posted Trimark came out with a new lock with a steel latch but the price was another $100 more than the original made from the zinc alloy. Ask if they know anything about the improved latch or if a more reasonably price one other than Trimark which will fit. Good Luck.

Can’t an “RV Designer” steel lock be used ?
