Deadbolt lock on main entry door

The tumbler has failed in the deadbolt lock.. Does anyone know where I can purchase one besides Newmar?

Thanks, Keith

Find a locksmith and have it rebuilt. I've rekeyed my home locks several times, by buying a kit at a local hardware store (remember them?).

Most Diesel Pushers use standard home deadbolts. With the exception being that in a motorhome the bolt is much longer. But if all that has failed is the tumbler then you can buy a regular home deadbolt and reuse the longer bolt in your motorhome. Install should be fairly straight forward. All the screws can be accessed from the inside of the door.

Remove the deadbolt and take it to a real locksmith. He will fix it good as new. No need to buy a new deadbolt. When I bought my unit, I didn't have a key for the deadbolt, locksmith put new guts in it and gave me 2 keys for 35.00. Take care.

Regarding the advice to visit a locksmith (Good advice by the way)....

At one time I had a House, a trailer and a pad lock on my swimming pool gate.

All took the very same key. 3 DIFFERENT makes of locks, All took the very same key.

I still have the padlock.. Traded the trailer in on this house (Class A) and the stick house was given back to the bank.
Home is where I park it!

I called the manufacture of the lock. Replacement lock was $130. Newmar wanted almost $500. Mechanism is easy to replace just watch out for the grease.
