What broke and what caused it to break?
I have a '17 Sunseeker and the door always sticks - no problem releasing the latch, just pushing the door open.

Not being a locksmith and not knowing what the different parts do as well as not wanting to tear mine apart just to see what does what, I thought it was a logical question. Yes, I see a broken part. But, I don't know what it does or what it may be called.

the peice that looks to be broken is the slide that locks the latch lever, mine wouldn't slide over enough to lock the latch w/ the key or w/ the inside red lever. I wasn't in a rush to replace it, due to the dead bolt worked great

Not sure how true this is, but years ago someone told me the key to the main lock is common to alot of the campers, but the dead bolt is not. We’ve only used the dead bolt since. Never use the other lock.
