Kathy,

Thank you for posting this. This summer I ended up getting stuck real bad with the dead bolt jammed closed, good news we have 2 doors, but I had a heck of a time getting the screws out on the inside with the screen door in there. This is not something you want to have happen with a fire situation.

My key code is CF in place of HF and the dates are out of range but they also say about if you can remove the key in the 9:00 position regardless of the key code your in the recall. And that may have been what happened to us. I just went out and tried it now and I was afraid to push it much that it may lock up again.

I need to contact them and see what is up. And regardless I need a new cylinder as I have not trusted it since.

Thanks for posting this. I'm going to make it a sticky.

John

Thanks for posting, Kathy! Sure enough, I'm affected. Front door is good, but rear door is one of the HF numbers. Maybe they can replace it with one to match the front door?

Thanks for posting this!!

We have an escape door in the bunk in addition to the main door and both are affected. The main door qualifies under both condtions!! The dead bolt key can be removed in all three postions and the HF# is listed. The escape door is keyed to one of the HF#s listed!!

Will be contacting FASTEC for replacements.

Mack

When I called and spoke with them, they said they could send locks all keyed the same.....I have 4 locks affected - front, rear and (2) garage doors............the only thing they ask is that you send back the affected locks after your replace them.!

Awesome! I may as well get it keyed the same then!

I have a spare lockset I got out of the scrap/warranty bin a few years ago at work, so I think they will get that one instead of my original.

Sent from the one who still has all five original tires, including the blowout!

Really... it is worth changing the cylinders to just have 1 key. The RV industry must of took lessons from the older automotive days. Remember when the trunk key was different than the door key? On a car, well OK maybe but a camper?

John, thee real question here is - do you remember having to use a key to open your door or trunk, instead of pushing a remote button????

What who's old??????

I beleive it was called a "Valet" key. The purpose was to lock the glove box and the trunk with one key and give the ignition key to the valet to park your car, while keeping your "stuff" secure. Oh, crap!!! Valet Parking and a lockable glove box in the same sentence......whoa!! Reminds me of an old Statler Brothers song..."Do You Remember These"

With the age of blue tooth keys, well if you call them keys... there is no door key or ignition, it's a button... Getting into a new rental car can be an experiance... At least some brands fly up a message to say press the brake pedal so the car will start... not all do.... ask me how I know.... Why won't this dumb thing start....

Yeh, I had forgot about the glove box lock. They cost reduced it out of the equation so long ago... I had forgotten. Never connected the valet parking thing though. Just thoough thye had the trunk key to help make things some how more secure. This was before the age when the back seat folds down and you can climb in the trunk area at will...
