228 storage lock

All,

I just picked up my new 228 on wednesday and love it.. The only thing is I fund out that the 751 key is a used by all Jayco's . The rear compartment uses the 751 key and opens to the camper. I was concerened that someone might find there way in there. I am going to replace it with the following:

I am not sure how the locks are measured if it is threads only or the entire lock. Does any one know if it is a 5/8th or 7/8ths lock??

Ryan

Welcome Ryan. I have thought about that myself. I'm out sitting by the fire enjoying our 228 right now. I'll see what I can figure out. Feel free to join our 228 group as well.

Welcome from another 228 owner! I think the sizing has to do with the cam length. Not 100% certain on that though. If Jayco 228 does not get back I will have a look tonight after work. Please also feel free to join the jayco 228 users group as well. Ryan

Awesome! Thanks guys. I got the 5/8 Combination Cam lock and it works when you use the existing latch paddle. I will post pictures when it is actually day light and I can take a good picture.

Glad to see another 228er on board, welcome to the forums and the 228 group any questions just ask, lots of good answers around. What year is your 228 everybody so far has a 2012 but me, wondering where the other new 228's went, ours was supposed to be the 3rd off the line when the 13's came out. Feel free to post pics and add to the discussions about color and options in the group area. Had ours a few weeks now, spent some time in it, first trip next week can't wait. Good luck and talk to you soon.

I've RV'd since 1999. I've towed through every continental US state. I have 751 locks on my trailers. I've never had anyone access a storage hatch.

If they want in, they can easily tear the hatch door open.

Save your $ for more important things.

A screw driver will pop that storage door right open. All the lock is good for is to keep the door from flapping in the wind and your stuff from falling out.
