Smile Guide Rail Needed; other salvage parts

Hi, I'm renovating a 1988 23 foot fun chaser. I've made a great deal of progress, but there is much yet to do.

I discovered a guide rail is missing on the front door side. Does anyone know where I find one?

I would also be interested in purchasing other small salvage parts if people have them.

Roof has been repaired and resealed. Appliances are all functioning with toilet and water heater replacement. Water damage in some walls will have to wait until the off season.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Amy

Post a picture of the area of the missing part. Some one might be parting one out. Also try J&R in Ohio. Best of luck in your repairs.

Default Guide Rail

The first photo is where the guide rail is missing. There should be four on each side.

Thank you!

Amy, I suspect you meant to say the LAST photo and I think there are only two on each side, four total.

I'm sure J&R has these and I wouldn't think they would cost too much.

Yes, I uploaded it first but it appeared last. J&R responded that they don't know if they have it. I have to go in and look. Guess I need to travel to Sacramento.

Oh, and there may be two on the back side. But the door side also has one on either side of the door. Four on the door side.

If your trailer has a battery door on the side of the unit, HiLo used guide rails to help slide the battery tray out. That was what they used on my 1995 unit.
