Worn key / lock

Anyone else have any issues with key ( Trimark 2001 ) giving you a hard time to turn tumbler ? Seems lately I have to jiggle key around and it takes a while to turn.

Must be the key is worn because it happens on multiple basement door locks and it's the only one I have. I'll have to order another one or two.

Joe try squirting a little lock deicer/lubricant in lock first. Could just need a little lube.

Wayne I will try that. They seem to turn fine though. I really need to have a 2nd set of keys anyways though, just wish it was easier finding and ordering them ( precut ).

Joe I had new keys made at Ace Hardware they were the only ones in my area who had blanks for that brand. Of course if key has issues you want to resolve that first.

I have found over the years that dry lub "shot" into the key slot and on the actual key periodically heads off a lot of lock issues. That would be the first thing i'd try before I give up on my RV locks!

Thanks Silver. This morning I ordered a pair of the 2001's from your first link. Like I said I need to come up with a 2nd set of keys . Still looking for a Freightliner ignition key, also an Trimark 1141.

I have a separate ignition key that I use when traveling to reduce weight wear on the ignition switch. Just for consideration while acquiring keys. I don't know if it changed for your 2014, but my 2008 ignition key blank matches Mitsubishi.

The Freightliner ignition key is a Chrysler key. I had several made at the local locksmith. They had key blanks for every key on my Berk. Both door locks, storage bins etc.

I had to get my spare ignition key from an actual locksmith.

Here is the 1141
