Lock issues on 2012 Tracer Touring Edition
Went to the RV dealer yesterday where they are storing my Tracer 3150BHD to show my dad and uncle as they were excited to see it. The rep took us out to the trailer and when I tried to use my keys to open up the door(s), I had trouble with the keys on almost every lock. The rep ended up using his master key and successfully opened the locks and then attempted to explain to us that the trailer had never been used and that its cold and all I should need to do is spray a dry lube into the slots and everything should be fine.
My dad flipped out on that response and said that they should replace the locks. Awkward situation for the rep, but it was 30F outside and we were all cold standing around frustraited over the situation.
So, I turned to the forums and checked out lock issues. It seems that the storage locks are the cheapest type used on RV's/Trailers. I do not have the "CH751" lock, but the rep explained that there were numbers on the hatch lock that also matched the number on one of the keys. Anyway, the deadbolt on the main door & outside bathroom door seemed fine, but the second lock (next to the dead bolt) was more challenging like the hatch doors. Should I have the dealer replace the locks on the hatches under warranty or is it pointless and I should simply buy some better locks like the combi lock or the Industrial Hardware replacement locks.
