Roof Escape Screen Handle - How Do I fix?

The escape hatch handle assembly came apart when I was trying to take out 2 screws & re-insert a round metal piece so it would crank open & shut. Do I have to get on top of Scamp to fix?

You should be able to repair it from inside the trailer. If the gear box and arm is messed up try this to remove it. Remove knob or crank handle, remove the two screws, unlock the screen escape latch. (Big red pull latch.) Lift the screen and the top by hand. As you raise them the lift arm will slide to a opening in the slide track and the lift arm mechnism shoud be free. Then you can buy a new matching lift arm and gear box. You will need to match up with what you currently have.

Pictures of your issue would help.

I think Scamp will only sell you a complete vent assy. You can buy the vent operators on line but you need to make sure it will fit since there are several mfg. (Jensen,Elixr) I would first go to a RV parts store and try to match up what you have. If you can't find one locally find one on line but call to verify measurements. You really need to figure out who made your escape vent.
