I put these on all of our storage compartments, ordered 8 of them all keyed alike. That way not every one in the campground has a key to my storage compartments.

I ordered my locks from padlocks 4 Less on the internet, the salesman said the ones like your asking about will ice up sometimes. I haven't had that to happen with the type I ordered.

It depends on how thick your door is.

I have seen covers that are sold separately. I imagine you have to adjust the size/thickness you get to account for the part of the cover that fits between the lock and the hatch. Still on my todo list along with other upgrades I want to do.

Will the locks mentioned really offer any more security than the ones currently installed? I have the simple key type lock on my door that came with the camper. I'm thinking that no matter what type of lock I install, its only going to be as strong as the "base" it's installed in; meaning a good run at the door will bust down any locked door, no matter what kind of lock is used.

Correct?

My point exactly, the lock is only as strong as what's behind it. A thief will rarely go through the formality of using even a standard key. Their "keys" say Craftsman on them or are Harbor Freight crow bars (also both stolen) and brute force. I could open all the doors on my trailer with a large flat screw driver. All you got to do is get it open far enough to get your fingers or the tip of a crowbar in and it's over.

Remember what I said above, damage to the trailer is not a problem for a thief. Yeah, a key is a nice neat entry, but when you're a thief breaking into a camper, it doesn't need to be closed back up when you leave.
