There was a thread on this about 3 months ago. One of our doors had the defective lock.

We contacted the company and they're *so* easy to work with. While we were on a trip (before the replacement) that lock went South on us. DH took it apart and put it back together. So far it's working fine, but we have the replacement lock that we'll use if needed.

The company sends a small tool that makes removal of the bad lock quick and easy, and an envelope to return the bad lock to them.

Edit; we have two doors on our RV so a total lockout can't happen.

Many thanks Joe!

Mine were involved in the recall also. Easy ordering process via the Fastec web site and even a "how to" video to change the cylinder out. Looks like it will take about a minute.

Thank you for this information. We have never had any issues but we do have the key with the recalled code. We can't check our lock because we just put our Sabre in an old limestone mine for winter storage....won't be getting it out until March or April.

It would probably be a good idea to get the ball rolling now.
Then all you need to do is install the new locks after you retrieve the trailer.

I just checked mine and ayup, it's an affected one. On their website someone can order a whole ring of keys like many campground maintenance staff have. What a goldmine for the bad guys.

I saw that as well and thought that was not a good thing that the bad guys could order a whole set of keys. However, then I remembered that the bad guys would only use a screwdriver or crow bar. One tool would work on all campers!

I just received the replacement tumblers with keys and the removal tool.
Looks like they want the old ones back.
To late to make the change today so I will get on it tomorrow.

Mine came today as well.
Seems like a fast swap so I will try and run between the raindrops...

Ours came yesterday. But our camper is stored in an old limestone mine until April. Hope they aren't in a hurry to get the old ones back!!
