Jalousie window cranks

Hey everyone, Just bought an old Triple E Surfside last week and itís missing the handles that operate the window cranks. The previous owner has the replacements but seem to canít find them Does anybody out there know where I might be able to buy the handles? See attached pic of the crank pin. Thanks.

I think I found some at my local ACE Hardware store. An old truck cap that I have has the same type crank handle.

Donna, I think of you as the archivist of Fiberglass RV, (probably other sites as well). You seem to remember everything.

The knobs, or crank handles, in question can be found in the parts department of most RV dealers. However the propane knobs look cool.

Thanks for your kind words

The nice part about using the propane knobs, is they're NOT back stabbers!

We had the same problem when we got our Surfside and used handles similar to those in Donna D's picture, only in plastic. Just picked them up at an RV store. They fit the splines on the crank, no problem.

Thankís everyone for your input. I managed to find a handle at one of my local RV parts stores. Not exactly the style I was looking for but itíll get me through the summer until I find something better.

Colour it brown, and that is exactly what every window on my Trilliums have.

Reasonable price too.
