Retrofit Locks on the engine compartment.

Anyone find a source for keyed locks to replace the door catches on their diesel pusher?

It never ceases to amaze me the number of people that think they MUST lock up everything. In all the years we've camped we never even bother to lock the coach's door when we go someplace. I'd rather have someone open the door rather then tear it all up with a pry bar, same with all our basement doors.

There are times I would like to have mine locked. I found the doors open one time in our storage space in our complex. Nothing was harmed but younever know what some fool will dump in your oil.
If mine had locks I would leave them unlocked while traveling in case of needing to get in there fast for fire or other emergency.

Don't let the thread police deter you even if they think different they probably asked a few questions that ticked some other ------- off1

Agree 100+%. I believe in "locking up everything". As a retired police officer, I wholeheartedly agree that locks are for the honest. However, I also know that the majority of the bad element out there will prefer the easier pickings. Who knows, maybe one of those who are so quick to bash can live the experience when someone "locked up" is in the site next to theirs causing the casual thief to choose the basher's coach instead. As for the OP's question, the picture of the latch that was posted looks just like the locking latches that Tiffin and some other brands are now using on their outside TVs. If so, a quick call to one of those dealers may help.

That reminds me of years ago we purchased a new fifth wheel and I changed all the storage locks from the 751 key to camlock locks.
I came out one morning and seen where someone was trying to pry open the compartment where the batteries were located. They obviously decided it was not worth the effort and went 2 doors down and stole the neighbors batteries that were in an unlocked compartment. I did have a couple scrape marks on the edge of the door but they didn't get my batteries and other goodies in that compartment.
