Cam Lock Size 2018 Rockwood Mini Lite

I read lots of threads about switching out cam locks, but almost no mention of sizes and dimensions.

Just a heads-up that I took my locks out of my 2018 Rockwood Mini Lite 2504S to measure them. Seems like I had read that most are 7/8". Mine measured out at 1 1/8". I have no idea how standard these are. I would expect that they would all be the same, but I frequently am surprised at some of this.

Anyway, thought this might help for those wondering about the size of the cam locks.

*** Disclaimer: I really didn't intend to start another "why/why not to change locks and where to buy them" thread. I just wanted to augment those existing threads with some technical size info. But, yeah, it's my fault for starting this.

I replaced all mine (except the outside shower), plus my 2nd entrance door, with locks all keyed the same. It's a LOT easier to open stuff now!

And now I've got about 10 extra keys, because each lock comes with 2.

Got mine here:

Ch751.com posts this as a measuring guide. You can pull your lock and compare sizes including the cam length and offset.

I found most of my locks from rvlocksandmore.com and got them all key alike except for the outside shower which they didn't sell that short of a lock. I can live with 2 keys and leave the 751key inside the water compartment so I only need one key for my trailer.

Good luck and happy camping.measuring_guide (1).pdf

I converted the locking shower lock to just a twist turn. I can't see any reason at all to lock the shower.

compartment locks...

I just changed mine.. .measure from behind the key slot area.. *(where you have in your pic), to the lock tab. I'm reading yours at 1 1/8".. that's what I had.. worked well.. easy to do.. found nice tumbler locks, keyed alike on Ebay... also bought rubber covers to keep the weather out... not a costly project.. total about $30..

7/8" means they are designed for a door that is 7/8" thick. They have about 1" of threading, which is just enough to go through a 7/8" thick door with enough threading to get the nut onto it securely. At least, that is what I have seen with my doors.

It also depends on what the cam (locking tab) looks like. Some are straight across and some have a bend in them,



Mine had the bend, but the new ones I bought came with straight ones, so I had to use the old cams on the new locks.

Also, the screws that hold the cam to the lock were different on the old and new ones.

I put combination cam locks on al mine except for outside kitchen and outside shower. Couldn't find any to fit either. At least my tools and cargo are safe from others having the same key as me.

I changed all my locks on my Rockwood 2608ws. I bought mine at home depot and matched the number so I have one key for all the locks. They have different size cam shafts so most can find what they need.

This is my next project. My 2618VS had a combination of slam latches and CH751 locks. Wish the factory had keys then alike. Also, my front and rear doors have different keys.

Can anyone help me?

I have scoured the Internet and this forum for a way to change the cam lock on my slam latch doors. I purchased new CombiCam locks for my latches but I canít figure out how to change it out without going to a locksmith. There is no way to take the latch apart to access the cam. I have attached a couple of pics to see what I mean.

The latch is made by Southco R3

I'm guessing you need to pull out those two roll pins.

If you want help on those style latches, it's a great subject for a new thread. It doesn't belong in a 1-year old thread that's specific to the cam lock sizes, though. If you start your own thread, you'll get better help and others may learn from your project, too. Plus, it costs almost nothing to start a new thread.

Perhaps a moderator could manage this? I'd hate to see good info get lost on the back-end of an unrelated thread topic.

Good luck.
