If that was a CH751 key which is very common, maybe another camper has one you could use to unlock yours.

You received many good suggestions, I'll just add this...

Lithium grease isn't a penetrate. It won't do much good freeing up frozen locks and will simply make the key slide in easier as you have already found out.
Try some sort of penetrate such as PB Blaster or even WD40. Work your second key in and out several times after spraying.

Should you decide to access the back side of the lock to try to move the lever by hand, make sure the second key you have is inserted so it disengages the tumblers in the lock.

I agree with 5picker, also add a little lube to the arm after the door is opened. It only takes a little where the arm rubs the back side of the "jamb". Push the door in a little helps take pressure off the arm and will allow you to open much easier.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I was able to get the lock off from the inside. I may be looking into the slam latch approach. Thanks again!

One caution...Slam latch doors are thicker than yours....you'll have to fabricate a 1/2" shim for the inside side of latch...

the downside of slamlatches is they're easy to get in to....just a thin screwdriver to push this up inside the latch & you're in.

Most outdoor kitchens I have seen do not have the depth required for slam latches.
