Locked out of my 2001 Knight

I have had my 2001 Monaco Knight closed up outside for about 2 months. Now I can't get the door opened. Both top and bottom key cylinders seem to function, but it feels like the latch handle is not disengaging the bolt. I sprayed silicone lubricant in the key hole and as much as I could get in the bolt areas, but did not appear to help. I'm pretty sure I can take care of it if I can just get it opened. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

I know this is a bit flip, but I would solve it with an insurance policy and a Locksmith.

Try leaning on the door/pulling on the door. It may have unlatched and now the bolt has got pressure on it forcefully leaning on the door may unbind the latch or bolt. Likewise it might need a lift on the latch side of the door if the door has sagged.
Good luck

This has happened to us a couple of times. Both locking us in and out. Yes, push on the area of the top bolt while pulling on the latch.

Dennis, check to see if you have the infamous TriMark #60-650 door lock that fails without warning. If this has happened, I don't believe the lock can be opened from the outside at all, you'll need to sacrifice a window to gain access. Once inside, the lock mechanism can be taken apart with a screwdriver and replaced.

It's pretty simple to open a window without breaking the glass.

Problem resolved! Pushing in while pulling the handle finally worked. I lubricated everywhere I could and it seams to be working fine. Thanks to all for the advise
