Our Sunseeker had the 751 key on all outside storage and shower. We used the same distributor that Scubanut used and replaced them easily.

I replaced my 751's with barrel style locks. Mine were 7/8 on a forest river wildwood TT. Piece of cake and also really tightened up the door when closed and latched. Yes, if someone wanted in they can find a way but anything to slow them down and also avoid the "what if they just happened to have a 751 with them". Got them on Amazon. I replaced the one thumb turn latch with these as well so double locks on each baggage door.

Can you remove the key when they are unlocked? Some you have to leave the key in or turn it back to the locked position to get the key out.

No you can't. But honestly when I turn the key to unlock I just pull out a little on the key and then relock but the catch on the inside doesn't latch back to the frame. Piece of cake. Piece of mind.

I used ILH also...great service and good locks. They'll also let you key them all alike, or have a couple that are different if you have that need. They'll even color code the keys. But as a someone else may have said, you need to measure every single lock you are replacing. For example, I used three different size configurations on my Sunseeker 3010 DS (2015). Just because they look the same doesn't mean they are.

Changed my locks out this winder to the cam locks. They are much nicer to use and seem much better built than the cheap old locks FR put on. I did the locks a bit for security but mostly because the locks never worked great and the key was always very sloppy when put in the hole. I had a few times were things jammed up and not unlocking... Not anymore!

I filed the little tab off the cam lock keys so I could remove the key while it is unlocked and do the next lock. I also put 2 locks on each door.
