Super glue the two pieces together. Than pull it out.

If the break is inside of the lock, I'd be afraid of glueing the key inside of the lock.

Success! We sprayed a little WD-40 and then used a dental pick and a tack ("tools" we had here at home). Took my DH less than a minute to get it out!

Thank you so much for the replies and to Turbs for posting that video!

The key broke off in the unlock position, so we were able to open the door to get in. Our 233s is a 2013. We have the attached canvas but the canvas and screen fully unzips as an emergency exit so we could have gotten in that way if necessary. Not sure why we even bother locking the thing while camping since anyone who really wanted to get in could just unzip the canvas and crawl in....

good to hear the forum helped!

Just out of curiosity, does your emergency exit allow the zipper to be accessed from the outside? I can check mine, but don't recall that.

And, I second the questioning about using locks at all. The door locks do a good job of frustrating the opportunist; just not a determined thief, but they're rare.

The long part of the zipper thingy (have no idea what it is called?) is on the inside but you can easily pull the two "backsides" of the zipper apart and open from the outside.

Super glue on a paper clip. Just don't get it in the lock.
