Entry Door Lock Broken

Went by the storage yard this AM to pull minor maintenance on the KSDP.

Inserted key into entry door lock, key turns 360 degrees with no resistance.

Ten days ago, all OK, no signs of tampering, any suggestions before I call a locksmith?

TIA

some internal linkage probably popped off.

No way to fix until you get the door open (or get inside the coach). On the Monaco/Beaver, the inside door plate can be removed with the door closed and that lets you access the backside of the deadbolt lock to either remove the lock or attach its linkage.

Is there a window unlocked somewhere that someone could squeeze through?

With further reflection...

We lock the door using the deadbolt lock, not the lock in the handle.

It's the deadbolt that has malfunctioned.

That is what I assumed by the look of the key.

On my Coach the deadbolt mechanism can be accessed by removing a small panel on the inside of the door, but the "lock in the handle" can not be accessed unless the entire inner door panel skin is removed.

Your coach probably has a TriMark door latch (mine does). The TriMark latches have internal parts that are pot metal. They have a history of breakage. A Google search reveals that you and I are not the only ones that have had issues (see link below).

If you can gain entrance, take the latch apart and diagnose. I suspect a replacement may be needed. All the best.

Since it's the deadbolt lock, not the lock in the handle, should I attempt to do what's shown in this video or wait until Monday and call a locksmith?

My first thought was "Are you crazy? That's a house lock in the video!". But then I remembered the image in the first posting is for a Hillman key and not a Trimark. If the lock looks like something more at home on the stick and brick front door then give it a try.

Yes, and I'm proud of it

No, really, went by this AM with step ladder; YES!, one window slides open, simply have to remove the screen for entry.

But, still thinking I will call the locksmith and discuss a solution.

And, here's the door showing both locks.

A locksmith drilled into the deadbolt on either side of the tumbler where two machine screws entered the lock body from the interior side of the entry door. Note: see previous video.

Body of the lock was easily removed and the culprit was the axis rod connecting the tumbler to the interior locking lever. The rod had rusted and sheared when I last locked the door.

Of course, the lock need replacement -- $139 for parts and labor (Good Neighbor Sam paid for the initial visit.)
