Locked out..with key

Went down to get something out of coach. Unlocked door, pulled handle. Nothing.

Locked and unlocked still nothing. I using bottom not dead bolt. Dead bolt end broken off by dealer only found out after PDI. So not dead bolt problem.

Good Sam having locksmith come out in AM. Any ideas. Only possible window is beside driver and it's locked.

I have a similar problem sometimes when the inside screen door handle gets out of adjustment. The catch on the screen door is still engaged and will not let you pull open the door...easily.
I have had to yank hard to pop it loose. Or you may have to pry it open maybe braking the plastic catch.
Maybe this is your problem.

I suspect the linkage to the latch has become disconnected. If that is the case a locksmith will have a real issue opening the door. You might think about going in through a window.

Some time I have the same problem as graysondee post #2. Can you feel the tumblers turn?
Also I have had time when it doesn't want to let me turn the key, but if I use the remote key fob it will open and then work fine afterwards. Good Luck and keep nus posted.

Could be there's tension on the bolt. You may have already tried but try pushing the door in while turning the key. If not, the internals of the lock are probably broken. Are there visible screw heads on the outside you can turn and take the lock apart? That's probably what the locksmith will do if he can't jimmy the bolt. If no screws he'll have to jimmy a window or drill the lock.

I never lock my drivers side window now.

Had a break-in through the front door and the broken glass got in the door lock a couple days later after traveling a bit.

Was able to get in through my driver side window and dismantle the lock assembly.

This post may help you to get into your MH. It does involve drilling a small hole in a window frame...

HELP! - Locked out due to door failure

Another way to get in is by the skylight over the shower. Most unscrew from the roof.

I thought about that but it's two piece with the inside part screwed up from the bottom.

One thing I am doing, I lock the coach with the dead bolt, not the door handle. About 7 years ago while living in the Charlotte area we were storing our MH. One night there was a break in at the yard. The preps broke into several class C's but did not touch the class A's. The detective investigating the incident told me that although the class A's usually has more paw able "stuff" the dead bolt made them harder to get into. The class C's could be jimmied just like a car. After that and an incident when my DW accidentally locked the door handle while going out without a key, I started using only the dead bolt. Sure a dead bolt can be drilled out, but that is loud and takes time.

I'm in. I used the method of drilling a hole.
I drilled a 1/8 hole about 2 inches below lock latch at a angle as In other post.
Used a small stiff wire and opened latch. Skinny neighbor crawled thru and opened. I'll just patch hole with black sealant. It will be there if ever needed again. Now to call Winnebago for warranty replacement.
