Sean,

It's going to be one of my first mods. I have never had a problem in the past and as you say Sean, "locks are for the honest people", but I would feel better changing them anyway.

The semi-retired gentleman that gave me my walkthrough/orientation suggested changing them also.

Wes

I agree Wes. and now that I think about it, I think the semi-retired guy that led us through our PDI said the same (just where can you get a job like that anyway, huh?).

That's a good question 56. I haven't had time to do the research yet. I was going to start on the internet and if I can't find anything, call a locksmith.

And picture this Sean; A huge gathering and there are dozens of toyhaulers. Weekend Warriors lined up, row upon row.

It's been a great party and everyone is three sheets to the wind. You and Moski head for your trailer and turn in for the night.

Now with a lot-o-booze in everyone, the party breaks up and everyone spreads out looking for their coaches.

Only they all lock alike in this inebriated condition. You hear a lock click and in stumbles..................

Wes

Howie:

I'm surprised you weren't the instigator of this mod ...but it's actually pretty simple...go down to Home Depot, and you can find these locks all day every day. Usually about $4 a piece. Actually, any hardware store has them- take one off, and trodge down to your nearest store. You may also be able to take 'em all down to a locksmith and have them changed, but I have no idea as to the cost (can't be much).

Now that's funny- I don't care who you are- that's funny! [Only they all lock alike....te hee...tee hee!]

What's even funnier is that Sandy_Feet has a propensity to do that! (Haven't witnessed it personally, but even she fesses up to it- That's why we kid her about having a different motif on her coach!). So much fun...ey Sandy? [But still remembering the earlier posts!]

Now...I'm only talking about the baggage door locks....the main doors are not CH751's. If they were, then Sandy could get into ANY of our coaches (Gawd...just had to do it AGAIN!!!!!!!).

OK...back to seriousness again...it's all the little locks on all the outer doors...actually, even those that have just plain twist latches- you can change them all. The trick is to find a dealer/home improvement house that has enough of them to keep the same key. Which is why the locksmith may be your best option.

Helps?

Sean

My camper has the same lock.

If you guys change your locks, then I won't have a key to your compartments...

Wow, those are exactly what I was looking for, and they're local. I was going to order from McMaster Carr, but I'm sure the pricing is better here.

Alright I am ready to do this mod but with the WW in storage I need to know which size of this locks to order and if anyone has counted about how many we have on are LE's. Your answer is much appreciated.
