Storage Compartment Locks

Can't open the outside access panels, one under my bathroom (photo attached) and the second on the side, below the rear sleeping area.



I can access the one my the sleeping are, inside the camper. But I have no way to access, or even see what is in the other compartment...

Replacing the locks on these isn't a problem, replacement locks can be purchased at a local RV supply store and easily installed.

My question/dilemma - how do I open the access doors? Do I have to drill out the locks? If so how? Or are there easier/faster solutions?

Any guidance is GREATLY appreciated!!!


Many thanks & Semper Fi,
Rob

I "THINK" the key you want is a 751 (?) readily available at RV dealers....ebay and I think Amazon.

Or if you have a friend with a travel trailer - he would most likely have one to fit your lock.....they are almost all keyed alike!

Yes, a 751 key for the lock on the left in the picture. The right is just a thumb turn latch. Both are just 1/4 turn to unlatch. Any RV dealer parts department will have the 751 key.

I assume that the 751 key is not working to open your locks. First I would spray WD 40 or another lube into them and try the key again. If that does not work if you can access the inside of the door you can remove the screw from the latch and the lock arm. Drilling out the other one may be your only option. Which I had never had to do.

Thank you ALL for your time and help!!


This is really a great site, and it's great due to good folks like yourselves.


Will look at WD40 first, then look at getting a 751.


MANY thanks again & Semper Fidelis,
Rob

You can get a CH751 key at Home Depot. Also, many shed doors use CH751 keys, as I found out when I recently bought a shed.

If all else fails turn it with pliers it won't take much to turn it. I had different locks on mine when I bought it and no keys. I just replaced them all with non locking handles. The way I looked at it was if some one's going rob a camper they will have the keys. Any thing important is locked inside the closet with a cam lock.
