Don't say SUNLINE.....90% + is generic, well known mfg.'s parts. or easily matched from most RV supply catalogs.

Ditto! Except for the floor plan and the walls, there is not much that is Sunline specific in these units. All of the appliances, fittings, parts, and pieces are RV industry standard items that can be easily matched and replaced. The entire running gear is standard AL-Ko or Dexter or another common brand. Axles, brakes, bearings, wheels and tires are all common items.

Don't tell anyone at an RV parts counter that you need to fix the fridge in a Sunline as they'll just get a glazed look in their eyes and fixate on the fact that Sunline is out of business. Instead tell them you need to fix a Dometic 2452 or whatever model you have.

Your RV dealer should know better. When he says getting parts could be a problem, he really means, "Buy a new TT from me." Getting parts is NOT a problem (even for the older units for the most part.) It burns me that dealers do this instead of being fair and honest.

We've answered this many, many times before.

They are RV industry standard components. Most of your Sunline is made up of industry standard components. There is nothing Sunline unique about them.

Take the broken cover off and bring it with you to any RV dealer. They will either have it in stock or be able to order one for you with no problems.

Just don't mention Sunline. I've explained why in dozens of previous threads.

There's no need to post the question in more than one sub-forum. Once will do. That keeps all the answers and discussion in one place.

The landing gear is made by Lippert or another RV component supplier, and is commonly used in fivers throughout the market by many RV manufacturers. It's not unique to Sunlines just as all the other components and appliances in our rigs are not made by Sunline. If you look at the mechanism closely, you might be able to find the manufacturer's name. Take a picture of the area where the crank handle should attach and go to an RV dealership that has a decent parts and accessories department. They should be able to match it up for you. Just make sure you can return it if it's not the right fit.

Have any friends with a 3D printer?

These handles are basically impossible to find and very often broke. So you aren't alone.

I just purchased a 2001 T260SR and am loving it. It is in great shape but my issue is I only have one set of keys. I went to Lowes and got copies of the Hatch keys. I can order the main door key from Ebay (CF310) but the bedroom key is different and has no code on it. How can I tell what key code it is or are all model numbered keyed the same?

Hi Debi,

It sounds like your bedroom key is already a copy. In rare cases, Sunline was able to match up two like-keyed doors on the production line and make a trailer have the same ones. Most two door trailers do have different keys for each door, and no, keys are not common between models. What you got was just what was randomly picked off the pallet, unless they were able to match up two like ones.

Do you still have your complete owner's manual? If your manual has the appliance ID sheet in it, that lists out all the appliance model numbers and serial numbers, the key codes should be written on the bottom there. It might just have the numbers, but since your main key is a CF code, the other probably is too.

You have a Tri-mark lockset with the gold key with round black plastic head? When Sunline moved to FIC locksets, FIC puts a sticker on the lockset internals with the key code, but I'm not aware that Trimark did that.

The bedroom key is a square black FIC key with half moon cutout. It has a shorter shank than the front door key. I am the 2nd owner and have the 4" owners manual in the trailer. I will have to look for the appliance sheet.

Hmm, I'm surprised the FIC key doesn't have the key number on the key shaft then.

But, there's good news in this.

Open your entry door, take a phillips screwdriver and remove the four chrome screws that hold the inside handle on. Then pull out on the whole thing, the inner plate will come off. The outside part is still attached from the side of the door, so you don't need to worry about it falling out.

Once the inside handle is off, you should see a yellow sticker somewhere on the back of the lockset, that has the key code on it. Just give FIC a call with that number, and they can sell you all the keys you want for it. Also, they can sell you a new lockset with the same key number for your other door, if you want to key them alike. I think they can just sell lock cylinders too, if your other door is also an FIC, and those are a lot cheaper.

Reinstalling the inside handle is easy, just make sure the deadbolt lock lever is lined up with the flat spot to fit back on and that the inside release handle is in/closed, so that it fits into the mating part of the lockset correctly. Then just get all four screws lined up and started and tighten them down.

Just bought a 1986 Sunline T-2261. The dome cover over the vent in bathroom is broken. Where can i get a new one and how would i measure it to purchase one without taking it off and going to a dealer?

Welcome Lynn! The roof vents are all a pretty standard size, there are just a couple different brands of them. If you take a picture of the vent cover on the roof, take that to your dealer. Specifically take a picture of the hinge side- the big difference is with the hinge design.

There's a very good chance they are Ventline vents if it's still the factory vent, unless the whole vent assembly was replaced with another brand in the past.

I read the context of your request sort of 2 ways. One how to buy it at a dealer and not take it off OR how to not buy it at a dealer as you have to take it off. Not sure which you where after.

To add to what Sunline Fan stated, we can help you identify what to buy as well. If you post a picture where we can help and to measure your old one. As was said, someone may have changed the vent from original as they do not last as long as your camper is old. Some turn into a brittle mess after 10 years, some less than that.

The standard vent cover is approx 15 x 15" on the outside that fits a nominal 14 x 14" steel opening on the roof which may be 14 1/4" x 14 1/4".

See this link to Etrailer that shows a lot of good pics on the older standard Ventline dome. Now older I am referring too is like 1995 and newer as the covers before then even more different. Seems 1995 may have been a design change year.

https://www.etrailer.com/Enclosed-Tr...BV0554-01.html

As Sunline Fan said, look at the metal hinge. They make 2 main different kinds (Jenson and Elixir) and they do not interchange.

Your 86 camper may have something different then the changes that came in 1995. And they changed again about 5 years ago... This link on Etrailer has many of the real old ones and the newer ones. Odds are high yours may be one of them. I picked them to show you as they give a lot of detailed info on the products. I have bought from them and had positive experiences. However I do shop around too. Once you know a brand and part number you are looking for, there are a lot of online places to buy from. Amazon is even big into this.

There are 3 pages worth,
https://www.etrailer.com/s.aspx?qry=...lids+for+vents

Hope this helps

John
