Bought a new outer lock plate for the main entry door. This is the the big black plate with the paddle handle and 2 locks (dead bolt and handle). It came with a new dead bolt lock cylinder installed and 2 new keys. I'm supposed to use the handle lock cylinder from the existing hardware.

Sounds simple enough, but I can't figure out how to get the cylinder out of the old door plate. There doesn't seem to be anything behind the plate that releases it. Is this something a locksmith does through the keyhole or am I just blind? Thanks for any help...

Tom:

This is simple to do but you do NOT want to have the instructions posted on the Internet. Once the lock cylinder is removed you can get the door opened from the outside. If someone tells you how this is done, then every neer-do-well will know how to easily and quietly get into every RV out there! My RV dealer showed me what needed to be done and I did it with no charge from the dealer.

Thanks Doug! I was afraid it would be something like that. Can't believe they don't secure the cylinder from behind the plate. My old hardware is working fine, just all scratched up from old hurricane damage that was repaired with spray paint. You can imagine how well spray paint holds up on a door plate...

Think I'll just wait till I get home and take it my neighborhood locksmith. Thanks again...

Doug, you could have sent him a PM or ask him for his phone number in a PM. Nobody would know that way....Good Miles
