Got mine also but it is covered and in winter storage. They will have to wait until spring to get the old cylinders back. Of course, if I sell it before I have the chance to replace it will be on the new owners.

I got mine yesterday. The paddle door handle cylinder came right out. The deadbolt cylinder was frozen in place. I WD-40'd AND PB Blasted the cylinder and left it overnight. This morning I worked the 'blue key' for about 5 mins and Voila! the tumblers freed up and the cylinder slid out. That lil' 'trap door' that covered the slit for the key on the old cylinder was broken so it never closed totally all the time and likely got all sorts of crap in it.

As posted above it is not a big deal.
Took me abut 10 min including taking the time to explain to a fellow RV'r what I was doing and why.
He was kind of surprised at how easy the old ones came out and the new ones went in.
The tool and old set are now bagged up and ready for the mail in the morning.

On a side note.
I have lived here for just over 20 years now, the people that lived here before had a older TT.
Well while I was changing the locks I kicked up an old key.
Ya it is an old CH751 after cleaning it off it worked on my outside shower door....

Got mine about a week and a half ago. Like others, it took about 10 minutes. That night I ordered 2 additional keys and already have them.

Thanks for posting this Joe. Mine is unaffected, but this could be a serious issue.
