We have a 2003 Jayco pop-up with the storage trunk in the front. The problem is that it takes 10 minutes to unlock the darned thing. It has 3 spring loaded locks that you turn to get it open. But it's not a "keyed" lock. The key is this cylinder with 3 internal ribs that are supposed to catch on the drum as you turn it. "Works like a charm!!" First, you don't even know which way to turn it to unlock it(trial and error) and second, about 60% of the time the key does not engage the drum. Like I stated in the subject line..."Who's bright idea was this"? What a pain in the tucous(sp)

I think they were originally designed by a Buddest Monk as a mind relaxing Zen cleansing ritual. Sort of a "wax on...wax off" kind of thing!

I'm assuming that the locks are sticking and won"t turn? If that's the case. Spray some WD-40 inside the lock and around all the latches when you get it open.
I just had to do that with my new TT. Just getting the key in the key slot was a chore. I chalked it up to sitting out in the lot and not getting much use. I did the same to all my storage compartment locks as well.
Never had any issues with them, and honestly they aren't so complicated to figure out.
What I loved about the Jayco front storage trunk is that I never had ANY leaks or water issues, unlike some other companies with front storage trunks that could never figure out how to keep that area dry.
