This question just cropped up in another discussion.
pwb01 (Paul & Sheri) had the same problem, and discovered that some inexpensive, hobby style clock mechanism fit perfectly into the Telesonic clock that most of us have in our Sunlines.
I just replaced the battery in mine a few minutes ago after first reading your question (thanks for the reminder - still getting the trailer ready for long trips...
), and took the time to snap a picture of the back of it:
There are 8 screws around the perimeter that hold the front on, so it should be very easy to get to the hour, minute, and second hands to gently pull them off. As you can see, the clock mechanism is held in place by 4 plastic tabs and should be fairly easy to remove. The manufacturer of my clock mechanism is Rhythm Clock Co. and it says Made In Japan.
And that black clockworks sure looks just like the ones I've seen in craft and hobby stores like Michaels or AC Moore. I am willing to bet that if you take the hands and old mechanism with you to a hobby and craft store, you will be able to find an exact replacement.
Good luck and let us know how it goes. I am sure that many of us will encounter this issue in the future so your experience will be helpful to others.
