    Storage Compartment Locks

    One of the compartment locks on our 2018 2500 RL needs to be replaced, the inside cam has broken off. My question is whether or not to search for an exact replacement or look for a better alternative? Has anyone found a way of upgrading these locks, they are kind of flimsy and I always seem to be bending the bottom lip back into position, where it catches unto the trailer.

    Grateful fo any suggestions

    Ron

    You can replace the cam and keep the lock. Cheap and easy. Our 2400BH came with slam latch locks, but on our prior camper I installed combination cam locks so I didn't have to carry extra keys.

    Unfortunately none of the cams are all that sturdy so will bend under pressure.

    Hi All. I have a 2021 Imagine 2400BH. I want to swap out all the locks and key the same. Can anyone tell me what size and style locks I should order? I downloaded an order form from ILH Corp based on an earlier recommendation. Here are the options.

    There are 2 slam latches, outdoor kitchen latch, and the 2 locks on the entry door.

    Appreciate any advice here!!

    Thanks.

    I ordered from RV Locks and More which appears to be OEM for the entry door handle (look for a G code on your key). Because I wanted an electronic lock, I ordered a new entry handle and just common keyed to that entry handle. If you are happy with your entry handle and have a G coded key, you can order the slam latches and cam locks directly from them with matching G keys.

    Be aware that their E Pro Electric Lock has a door handle that sticks out a bit and will impact the side of the camper. The friction hinge makes it not a big deal, but it is something to be aware of.

    Cam Lock (outdoor kitchen) is "Cam Lock Scalped Barrel Actuator with O ring, 7/8", Stainless Steel."

    Slam latch is "Locking Slam Latch (Southco replacement), Locking Baggage Door Lock, Plunger Style, Entry Version, Black Powder Coat."

    Both of these allowed me to specify the key code in the comments.

    We just purchased new locks for both entry door and basement doors all keyed alike. Just got the today, they arrived in 3-4 daysf. At first glance they packed well, appear to be of high quality and tooling looks good we’ll see how the install goes in a few days.

    Oh yea, we purchased ours at Rvlocksandmore. It will be nice to have a single key for all locks.
