I am not sure if your latch is like mine in an 07 Itasca Meridian or not.

Mine the latch part is a white plastic piece that is spring loaded and when shut latches to the side. Much like a home door does. I had one break and had to replace.

Drill out the two rivets holding the latch to the side of the door. There is a metal hook that attaches the latch part to the handle part. This can be reached by unscrewing the cover over the handle part. You should then be able to unhook the old and put in the new.

Again this is how mine is not sure about yours.

It will depend on who made the latch

Tri-Mark if it's the kind of latch that latches on teh bottom
First problem is finding a bolt.. IF, and only IF they are identical to the ones on my Damon... Seneca Engineering in Seneca SC has the specs and can cut you a new one.. IF not take the old bolt to someone like them (Metal smith)

Collect any parts that fell out If basement is latched see below
Remove 4 screws, from backing plate remove plate and set aside
Remove assembly lay Outside face down and take a photo with your digital camera

Remove one screw and left off the transfer lever and washer NOTE the order they go back on.. Slide rest of bolt down and out. Take bolt peices to metal smith (They do not sell the part)

YOu need to put the spring in the cut out part of the bolt when reassembling.

IF the door is latched.
A long thing tool (Screwdriver) if you can slide under you might be able to push the bolt up with the tool and open the door.

The design of the Tri-Mark lock.. all but guarantees they will break.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
2005 Damon Intruder 377 Alas declared a total loss
after a semi "nicked" it. Still have the radios
