Rv compartment locks

We were told when we purchased the Rv that we should get new locks since everyone has the same key and theft can be an issue. Does anyone have a recommendation? There are some on Amazon, they seem to be between 5-$7.00 per lock also some are 5/8 others are 7/8? Which do we need? Also some us regular keys and others have the keys used on wheel locks. Thanks

I swapped out our locks (and this assumes you have the same style) with file cabinet locks from Lowes. They are simple to swap out, and you can get them to all use the same key. Each package will have a 4 or 5 digit key code, just buy the number of locks you need with the same code, simple as that. I think they were in the $4.97 price range


Assuming this link works, this is pretty much what you are looking for.

But if you have the "handle style" locks, I am wasting your time, lol

Replace the locks if you like but the likelihood of any one stealing your stuff is slim.

Agreed. And if it does happen, it won't be because they happened to have a key that fit your lock.

All the instances I've ever heard of an RV being broken into they either broke a window or simply pried the door(s) open.

Soon as I get my camper back from the dealer I'm going this route, then my door key will also match the storage compartments.

Baggage Compartment Locks and Keys

I already rekeyed my rear door to match the front. These will make the whole trailer one key with the exception of the garage door. I'm not concerned about it from a theft standpoint, just pure convenience of 1 key.

Most of the discussions involve the wide use of the CH751 key. This is a small, single sided key. The compartments on our Solera use a double sided key - nothing like a CH751. Doubt your Sunseeker compartments use a 751 key.

We used them too. They even sent me a new barrel when I screwed one of my new ones up. Great service and product.
