Saturn T24 bedroom privacy latch

Hi
On our privacy curtain for the bedroom area on our 1997 Sunline Saturn T24 there is a small knob on the wall which the curtain latches to, to keep it shut. Well ours won't stay shut. The accordian effect of the curtain keeps pulling it off. Is there a source for a new knob or a different latch system that can be used to secure it that anyone knows of? I haven't had luck in my searches and I am not sure that just replacing the knob on the wall will cure the problem. Maybe the catch inside the curtain frame itself is worn as well? But that is riveted internally into the end frame of the curtain. I also prefer not to put some crude looking latch on it as a replacement. If I can do it the way the factory designed it that would be wonderful.

Can you post a picture of the latch/knob you are looking for?

There are several RV hardware sites that may have it. I do not know your camper, but many of us can help you hunt if we know what it looks like.

Door

Take the piece off the wall and bring it to a Home Depot or Ace hardware. They might have that piece. Do you have a trailer supply store handy. That would be the first place to look.

Good luck!
