    magnetic baggage door latches

    We have been looking for days to find magnetic door latches for our 350m baggage doors, just like the ones on the door above the outdoor TV . The baggage doors close on us each time we try and access that area. Any idea how we can get a couple ? Would love to have the part number and supplier information.

    Originally we bought some from Camping World but discovered that they repelled instead of attracting each other. We called the supplier but it took several shipments before the warehouse shipped the "attracting" types.

    This is the supplier that we used: RV Designer (800-938-5883). Black Magnetic Catch Set, Item L607. Make sure you specify "attracting" magnets.

    I bought the same ones from Camping World. The directions don't state it, but you are suppose to pry off the plastic backing plate and flip the magnet inside. This will correct the polarity of the magnet and have them attract. Many have purchased these but returned them thinking something was wrong.

    Wow, thanks. We will definitely get those ordered today. Would be nice if they were standard-would be an attractive selling perk in the demonstration videos.
