Second dead bolt lock

My 92 HR Aluma Lite has an ineffective lock in the door handle, as well as deadbolt. I want to add an additional deadbolt, as the door handle lock is pretty useless leaving only the deadbolt.

I have taken the rig to two dealers and a commercial locksmith and none of them either want to, or know how to do this. Granted, it's not a wood kitchen door that anyone could do, but where can I go to get another lock put on?

Thanks for any input,

Mr. LeMans

Mr LeMans,

This doesn't answer your question but on my Winnebago someone tried to break in some years ago while it was in the storage lot. It has the same arrangement you have. They never got in but made a mess out of the door edge trying. It looks as if they used a tire iron laying nearby or maybe a crowbar. Don't know if you really need the extra deadbolt and you'll probably have to carry 2 keys.

Mr. LeMans, how fast is does that Holiday Rambler go down the Mulsanne? Seems a little aero challenged vs. the Audis. Or should I assume you are not this Mr. LeMans . Or if you are, it was nice chatting with you at the Petit a few times.
