If you have this common type of lock, you can change the deadbolt part of the lock, but not the latch handle part.

Just take it to a locksmith and have a key made for it. They can make a key for the existing sequence or change the pin sequence and make a new key for that. Cost's about $20, and get a few spares made while you are there [emoticon]

If they say that they can't get the lock out to change the pins, direct their attention to this little brass tab which shows when the key is in the open position. I had to figure this out for my locksmith. Pressing on the brass tab will release the lock cylinder.

I never was able to figure out how to get the latch lock cylinder to come out, but decided to forget it, as I only use the deadbolt for locking. There does appear to be some kind of access to release the cylinder, but me and the locksmith could not figure it out. If it is an older trailer, grease the workings of the latch and deadbolt while you have it out.

I bought two of these for my new TT and had the locks in my other TT rekeyed to match. One key work all 4 doors. I really got tired of having 2 keys for a TT.

RV door locks

Price is not bad....

    Thank you all for your help. I will try the locksmith first, I thought that would be more expensive.
    Dcairns,
    Thank you for the photos and tips. I am pretty sure I have the exact same as in your photo. I will also look for the Phone number inside.
    Again thank you all.
