Source for replacement lock

The small lock on the hatch for our exterior entertainment system seems to have failed. It opened once, but that was the last time the key made it turn. I've tried various lubrications & gentle massaging with a long pick, but it just won't cooperate.

Anybody have a good source for a replacement lock? If not, I'll try my local locksmith - but if they have it, it'll be a 500% markup, I'm sure.

I do see replacement cam locks on Camping World.com but was hoping to get something that could be keyed to match all of the other basement locks.

Oh, and while I'm on this, our rig is also missing one basement lock cylinder - so the same source question applies there too.

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Every camper I have owned had the same hatch key. They are available almost anywhere that sells rv stuff.

Thanks to you both for the help! I'm definitely on the right track now... One small step for a man, one thing checked off the list.

So, after I get the rig back from having the front end worked on & aligned ($ouch) then I get to work on re-wiring the electric step & get rid of the stupid crimp connectors that aren't making good connections anymore. Nothing like getting on the interstate & checking the side mirror & seeing your step hangin' out there.

Almost every RV dealer will have a tub of replacement locks... I went through mine and found 5 that had the same serial number that WERE NOT CH751's and replaced all my locks the day I bought my TT.
