Locked IN/OUT

Prepping for New Years trip, lock broke. Latch snapped. Luckily I was inside and have tools inside. Not happy. Cheap chinesium crap. Will cry to my FR rep to send me some new parts...

Happy it didn't happen while camping and being outside while dogs inside, DW would NOT have been happy and probably smashed a window...

Will still go this weekend, still have dead bolt to lock...

Ok so the whole assembly is readily available online for around $85. Whatever, not even worth contacting FR3 about... Perhaps I could contact Trimark to see if they have parts, the lock is serviceable.

Trimark T507 (060-1650) new version.
CLICK HERE TRIMARK T507 060-1650

The Plunger Bolt, the part that broke, is still cast zikc in the "New" version.

Copied from their website;
Housing, inside plates, handles, plunger bolt, deadbolt, locking components including lock knobs: Die cast zinc alloy

Tri-mark dose offer a updated lock with steel bolt. I talked to them about a year or so ago and they offered a updated version. Amazon sells the standard one with 2 day shipping. We are now on our 3rd lock set now. Our bolt never broke but there is a peace of plastic in there that brakes and jams the lock.
Good luck and hope the rest of the year goes better for you.

I cannot find this on their website. What is the model number of this, I am looking for a better one.

So.

Just got off the phone with Trimark. They do offer an updated part. Just the outside part of the sandwich assembly (part number 29412-08 03H), with a STEEL plunger bolt. They also want $141 for it. This will NOT remedy the plastic 'slider' part that breaks. (the plastic part that guides the plunger/hold it in place) See attached picture...

No thank you. I'll go with die cast for $80 (complete assy.) on Ebay and just order 2.

Also,

When googling some part #s, you will quickly find a NHTSA recall for the exact same lock/part on Winnebago RVs. This recall however does not seem to mention failing plunger bolts. See attached
