Hello,
I replaced our door lock with an RVLock and keypad. The lock mechanism itself is a little sturdier than the OEM that the door comes with. But really after my wife manged to lock herself out with the key inside the RV I really wanted to get a key-less entry lock. The Rv Lock & Pad I got is simular to this on Amazon but I got mine in black.

Does the new one fit in the existing opening of the old latch? (Do you have to cut anything to make out fit? )

It fit right in perfectly and the door latch lined up perfectly with the hole in the frame.
But oddly it came with no screws to attach the 2 half's together and I tried to use the existing ones but the door latch used American thread and the new latch uses metric threads. So I ran to the local ACE and metric screws of similar length.
I but the keypad just to the left of the door on the TT body.

My dog is the best security I have. He loves people, but if you invade our teritory without us being there, or he does not know you, then his bark will be intimidating.

He loves camping too.

Bucko, thanks for the reply! I have a 14 year old wheaten terrier - that is not much more than a rug. She never barks - loves everyone and I'm sure she would show you where the "goods" are! She is a wonderful companion and loves what ever we are doing together!

However, the results are unpredictable! You could end up with life without parole, or worse if the state still has the death penalty.

OK. We've had a little fun (including me). Now, let's get back on topic and refocus our attention to the OP's question (which I've reiterated, above).

Seems to me it had something to do with locks.

Thanks!
