Replacing or re-keying 2000 Rexair Storage Compartment Locks/Cylinders

Hi,

Love my T. REX, which has heavy duty locking mechanisms with small but (mechanism specific?) cylinders, all with ch751 keys:( Are these replaceable (by who/where??) or will I need to have all 10 re-keyed (*if* possible) to have secure storage compartments?!? TIA, C7

Pull a cylinder out and take it to a locksmith.

RV Locks have lock cylinders that they guarantee nobody in your area will have a key for.....

https: // shoprvlocks.com has exact replacement locks.

Note that there is no www on the front of that web site.

I bought mine from Amazon. Bought one set (8, I think) keyed-alike, one for each of the hatches.

Of course, a locksmith can do the whole thing if you want.

Are any of you kind respondents talking specifically...

...about REXHALL REXAIR compartment lock cylinders? They don't look like the ones to which you've referred (which I did look at b4 posting). Thanks for responding; I may be wrong but if you have a *sure* link to a REXAIR compatible cylinder, please share

Rexhall cargo locks

They are all the same on everything from about 1995 to 2006
Been rving since 1995 and have yet to lock a cargo door. What do you carry in the storage compartments that anybody would want to break in and steal? Do you live in a high crime area? (FYI) Rexhall complete units are different than all others. I had to buy one and are really hard to find.

Rexhall Compartment Locks Are Unique...

...and nearly irreplaceable themselves. Mechanism-specific cylinders MUST be re-keyed (by a locksmith @ $15-20 each, no DIYS "kit" available) if you really care to secure your compartments from thieves and unwanted 'guests'.


PS There is apparently NO Rexhall Group here on iRV2:(
