Who has replaced the locks in their compartments?

And how did it go? I have a 2004 Coachmen Santara and they are all starting to seize up. As a 3rd owner I notice a few of the individual ones have already been replaced as I have a substantial mixed key set. I don't know that they are all CH751 type locks but look similar, and I am thinking going to a modern set of the camlock types would be nice.

Who has done this, where did you get the parts, and what was involved in the swap out? thanks for any responses

Go to CH751.com The site has a very good guide to order the correct size lock. If you get the barrel cam style you will get your individual key, not a CH751 that fits a lot of the RVs. Installation is very easy. Their customer service is great.

Go to Walmart and grab a can of lock lube. It'll be by the WD-40.

Don't use WD-40 on locks

This is what to use on your locks - not WD-40
