I simply went to my local locksmith and bought new cam locks keyed alike to replace the CH751. I paid $5/each with no shipping since it was a local business. When installing there are some pins that allow the key be removed while in lock and unlock position as well as only the locked position. I chose to use the pin and only allow the key to be removed while in locked position. Took approx 3 min per lock to replace.

Re: Replacement locks for OEM 751 keyed locks

I went here and ordered new door locks and compartment locks so they all use the same key. My main reason for doing it was to have both doors use the same key. Everytime I went to open the door I picked the wrong key. I know there are easier ways to mark the keys but its nice having one key for everything.

Boom. Done.

Ordered new door lock and CH751 replacements with all matching keys. Secure online ordering with all prices listed.

Thanks......

I do not lock my storage compartments and nothing has ever been pilfered. I've been RV'ing since 1999.

The cost of the junk in my storage area is less than the cost to repair the damage due to forced entry.

Just my 2 cents.....

Re: Replacement locks for OEM 751 keyed locks

When I changed my locks it was for convenience and to keep honest thieves out. Its the same reason I lock my house and my car. I don't lock them because I think it will keep a criminal out but rather it will keep an honest person honest. The storage yard I keep my trailer at is very busy. Someone prying open a door would be a lot more noticeable than someone walking up with a key.

If someone opens one of my doors I will know because it will be broken. Most people say in my x number of years I have never had a problem. I would expect the same results regardless of what kind of locks I have.

I just contacted Industrial Lock and Hardware. The locks will be keyed alike, but very unique so someone else having a key that'll work is all but impossible. They are sending me 3 new locks with the tubular style keys with dust covers. The sizes I ordered for the compartment doors are 7/8" long lock cylinders with 1 5/8" long lock arms and a 1/16" arm offset.

I now have the new locks installed on the storage compartments, they came in the mail today.
As you can see, I got the optional protective covers and re-used the finger pulls from the old locks.

Hindsight being 20/20, I should have ordered the 1 1/2" lock arms. The lock arms I ordered ended up being a bit too long. I could have shortened them on the bench grinder. But included with the locks were adapters that allowed me to just use the arms off the original locks. And yes, the key is removable in the locked or unlocked position.

Slightly off topic, but still dealing with keys. My TT is stored nearly 300 miles away at a ocean campground. It is the only place it has ever been, and the only place we stay. My last trip down, I was about half way there and realized I had forgotten my keys! Lucky for me that I had not used the deadbolt. I simply went across the street to my dealer, who let me use his master keys for the weekend.

I just went to ACE hardware and bought the right size and put them in. Was a couple of years ago so don't remember how much. I always lock everything even when we parked the trailer in the back yard.
