Check out JCWhitney.com for RV stuff.  Some name brand stuff for much less than anywhere else.  Good Luck, TomC

It's really surprising how much stuff they have in the catalog and at a good price, I've ordered from them for years and have never gotten a bad item. I bought a super cheap awning and screen room from them for our travel trailer years ago and it still works well, paid around 100 bucks for it and 30 years later it still is holding up, somewhat faded but still intact and working, amazing. lol Of course, 100 bucks 30 years ago was like 105 bucks now lol.

JC Whitney often buys overstock and old stock stuff.

I had a buddy buy a carpet kit for his ford Pickup.......is was a FOMOCO part number box and all  at about 25% of what it was available for anywhere else

I buy lots of stuff from JCW, have for 40 yrs, but I find that RV stuff from Camping World is usually a few bucks cheaper if you're a President's Club member.

JC Whitney is usually my last resort for anything as I find the prices are often high.  I have almost never checked on RV stuff from them as I forget they have RV stuff.

I have bought a few things from them over the years also. The last item I bought was a third brake led light. I really liked the look at first, after a few months the chrome metal tabs on the ends started rusting. Not happy with that so I bought one from another source, haven't mounted it yet though.

You could have problems from any source. Just like HF, you get what you pay for.

I've ordered 3 times from them received 3 wrong items.  I ordered by the part # got something not even close to what I ordered.  I got a very nice air chisel with attachments for squat $.

Being in Canada returning  to them is not a clean option.

End up giving it away.
