Compartment door latches and locks,

Does any one know where to get the thin rubber gasket that goes between the latches/locks and the compartment door? Ours our splitting and pushing out, would like to install new gaskets when installing some new locks.

I would pickup a small roll of Butyl Rubber Sealant Tape like this.


American Hardware 30' Putty Tape, 3/4", Gray, #R-010B - Walmart.com

You may find it cheaper at a local hardware store or one of the big box stores.

Roll a bit of it up like you would plumbers putty and apply it to the latch or the door then just remove the extra that squeezes out.

It may last longer and seal better than the thin rubber stuff.

O rings work well. Use a snug fitting one.

I replaced my cam locks with ones using a barrel key. They came with new gaskets.

What is the black sealant that they use inside the compartment doors? It goes around the perimeter of the opening and appears to be a weather sealant.

The only problem with the barrel locks is you cant remove the key when its unlocked.
That means that you have to un-lock the compartment everytime you want to open it,

Unsure, could you describe it's texture?

Pro Flex RV sealant perhaps.

It is a solid yet pliable compound that looks like black caulk but has more substance to it. It might be applied by a caulk gun or maybe an aerosol can.

There are places where it is a perfect bead and then there are some spots that are a bit of a mess.

I didn't see what a bead of Proflex looks like so I can't say yes or no.
