Good looking lock. I replaced all the locks on mine from rvlocksandmore.com great people to deal with. Even fix my mistake at no charge.

Although my water ski hanging in the storage compartment costs way more than the door (Ha!) ... I agree. The locks are more to keep honest people honest than to deter theft. Like said, a screw driver or carpenters prybar ... 10 seconds and you're in and rummaging around.

How'd you do that - replace cam locks with slam latches?

Bought 3 metal slam latches off 'net', cut hole bigger, installed. Slam latches are made for thicker doors, so you need to measure door and latch thickness and make a shim plate for inside door. Also added gas shocks, 2 per door.

Thanks Bob - looks good. What's that sticking out under the slam latch between the door and the frame?

slam latches have a striker plate, similar to the doors in a home
