    Door locks stuck

    I figured this can happen to any model so I'm posting this here.

    Has anyone had any problems with their door locks. This was kind of odd, we unlocked the trailer with no problems the other day. When we went to lock it the key will not turn in either direction. It locks and unlocks from the inside. Any suggestions before we call the dealer?

    Common problem with the locks they use on RV doors, regardless of RV manufacturer. I use spray graphite regularly to lubricate them. You can pick it up at any hardware store. Just spray some in and keep jiggling the key until the lock turns again. In extreme cases, I've used PBlaster to get the lock freed. That stuff gets anything loose. But be careful if you use it. It sprays out fast and will eat thru the exterior finish if not cleaned up.

    Hi, thanks for the rep[ly. It turned out that they must have had a bit of condensation from last time we were in it and had the furnace on ,and froze. Once the furnace ran for a bit this afternoon the locks started working.

    Wish winter would GO AWAY !
