While I was winterizing yesterday I went to open my screen door and part of the handle broke off. I had my wife go the camper place down the street that was a coleman dealer and they don't have the parts. Any idea or links that you can go to for Coleman Parts? Thanks

usually you can use a standard screen door handle set with a little modification.

I bought one off e-bay last spring.  Pretty sure it was a knock-off, but it worked fine.  Here is one of the current listings for $9.74 + shipping.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/JR-Products-10795-Coleman-Screen-Door-Latch-/270847382160?hash=item3f0fc31290&item=270847382160&pt=Motors_RV_Trailer_Camper_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr

Awesome. I need one too. Since the ebay listing had the manufacturer and the part number, I found it on amazon. Price is a little higher, but shipping is less. Seems like JR Products makes most of the hardware for my camper, and Amazon sells it all!

After replacing mine twice and having them both become too hard to use (had to push the button really hard), I switched to a standard handle that I bought at a garage sale for a buck. I used the inside part of the Coleman latch and the outside portion of the standard handle. It's much easier to open and use this way.

Before anyone does the big screen door handle mod it might be a good idea to verify it won't dig into your ceiling when the door is stored and pop'd down. I'm sure it varies from model to model, but that would never work on mine.

The design of an 06 Fleetwood Cheyenne is actually so bad that the front bed bow - when its laid down flat on the bed - actually passes directly underneath the middle of the lever handle (that is on the inside of the door that we can't see in Rhino's pics above) and the lever sits on the bow when the top is down! If you leave blankets on the bed, or if you lock the door handle so it can't be depressed as it sits on top of the bed bow it destroys the handle during travel. Someone at Fleetwood messed up the design and if the storage spot for the door was just an inch farther back (or forward) all would be well.  I know that has nothing to do with the replacement latch parts (of which I bought a few before I figured out what was destroying the handle! They are all nearly the same but seem to vary in spring strength from one source to another) but just a warning to measure and look carefully before thinking you can add a physically bigger handle. Glad it works for others. Wish it would for me! I'd have an impression of that handle permanently in my ceiling.

Checking the height clearance while stowed is good advice and I should have mentioned the close clearance. With my new Alumilite roof (installed Feb 2010) the tolerance is only about a 1/4" when stowed and I had to make sure the metal push pin for the latch was shortened enough to allow some slack in the button so it would compress freely if it contacted the roof during transit (big bumps, roof flex, etc.). Unlike the previous poster, my bed bow does not hit the latch assembly but does contact the door assembly. I added some padded tape on the bed bow where it makes contact.
