Never EVER Assume!!

Was working in the wet-bay on our new-to-us Camelot, and finally got the 'white monster' panel out yesterday. I'd taped or hung all of the wires out of the way - including disconnecting the door-lock connector/wires - and then closed the door when I quit for the night.

Since I've been trying to attack the big issues, I hadn't had the coach long enough to wring-out all the little bugs.... one of which turned out to be that the bay-door lock didn't have a key for it.

You probably guessed it by now . No way to get the door open this morning. But nothing a sharp drill thru the lock-cylinder couldn't fix. So I now have one more job on my fix-it list

Hence the title: "Never Ever Assume"

The bright side is now you'll have lock replacement experience.

If you have not already drilled the lock it might be possible to open the door depending on the type of latch. Just so you know. I can open mine, even if locked, non-destructive, without a key.

At least you are not in some camp ground far far away from your tools.
