I have a 2002 5th wheel with a Hehr 8701 style window (#01-8701-00-0-217-536-357-0-4141-2551-0000). One of the center sections (jealousy) actually fell out while in a wind storm. The parts are quite worn and it seems Hehr doesn't want to sell just the part that is broken.
Question: Is there a national data base for used rv parts like there is for salvage auto parts. OR does anyone have any ideas?

Don't know about a national data base but here are some salvage yards.

That type of window is generally flat panes. A bit of "Goop" on the edge as you slid it into the frame and it won't slide... EVER.

Hehr doesn't sell directly to public which is why you got the cold shoulder.

There are other places that they do sell to like THIS one (never tried it).

If the glass was broken you can lookup some home and business glass shops, they will check the glass color, measure and cut and send the glass out for tempering. Once they get it back can install the glass in the frame for you.

As far as the "operator" and torque tube parts goes, typically you can find generic aftermarket replacement parts at your local RV dealer parts departments which with a little adjustment may fit and work for you.

I did find a Hehr replacement parts website HERE (once again, I have not tried them) they list operator, torque tube, linkages parts.

Probably your best bet as this is an area where the manufacturers are all over the place and I don't believe there is any standardization.

But a glass shop should be able to cut and fit what you need.

I guess I didn't explain my scenario well, the frame itself and the glass are gone, I have contacted Pellant and that is a no. I even asked if I could purchase the entire 8701 window, again no. I have contacted 3 salvage places and no one has the window. I am thinking I might remove the entire window and see if I or a glass/window shop can't come up with something that can be make to fit inside the frame of 8701. Cardboard and Gorilla tape ain't to pretty ;(

If the entire window frame is missing then your only hope is a custom RV window manufacturer like ALL-RITE

"

All-Rite builds AFTERMARKET RV parts. We are unable to cross-reference by year, make, model, part # or VIN #. All products are built by ROUGH HOLE sizes. The rough hole is the hole left in the coach after the original part (door, window, etc) has been removed. Measurements are taken from wood to wood for both height and width.

All-Rite Custom Manufacturing has a wide range of RV windows for sale. We custom-design insulated windows with removable fiberglass screens, and picture windows in single or dual panes. Our catalog also includes slider windows built to fit your rough hole size (including T-slider, vertical, and horizontal) and torque windows with single or dual openers.

In addition to manufacturing high-quality RV windows, All-Rite also specializes in creating custom replacement window screens. Our screens are made to order, and they work with any of All-Rite’s windows as well as a variety of other brands."


They do also carry a variety of window styles and sizes, you can check their catalog.

They can take your dimensions and make a window to your opening size.

But, you might need to be sitting down before getting prices as they were not cheap before all the supply issues we have now.. And their website right now is indicating production of the awning style you have has been temporarily suspended so you may need to consider replacing with a different style of window if you want to close up the hole.

On edit..

In Elkart Indiana which is where a lot of the RV manufacturers are based out of is a variety of places that buy up surplus RV inventory when manufacturers change models. Most of these places are not on the Internet and you will need to go there and search their warehouses. A friend of mine often takes camping trips out there to find "upgrades" on the cheap. I did order some stuff from one that did have an Internet presence but they are no longer in business.

HERE is a Yellow pages search for Elkhart Ind..

You can try Easy Windows They have instant pricing,types of windows you can order, and how to measure.

I replaced one of my windows and the staff there is very helpful and the prices seem to be reasonable.
