Hatch door locks spinning

Anyone having issues with their door locks twisting open without the key?

Forget having the industry standard key my entire lock mechanisims are spinning freely locked or not. I tried tigtening the back nuts but some are stripped now and it is still very easy to open the hatches as a result.

I see on the POS pics that Jayco has gone to the new lift style hatch locks seen on high end pushers but I have the older round style. Anyone been in under warranty for this?

If you are still under warranty I would have them put on new locks. If out of warranty you should be able to get some locks at Home Depot or Lowes. Then you would not have the common key.

I am still under warranty and plan on having it attended to. I was curious if someone had this issue with their unit and what might have been done?

To have one lock I would understand but all mine are spinning which makes me think something was not done right upon install.

I didn't have that problem, but did not like the fact that all or most rvs have the same keys to lock/unlock their hatch doors. I bought resettable combination locks from my dealer for around $16.00 each. Parts guy put one on while I watched and then I did the rest later. Only thing was I had to use the little catch/cam that came with the original locks to get them to hold the door tight enough. The one supplied with combo locks didn't close them tight enough. The only lock I couldn't change was the shower door lock. There wasn't enough room to install it.

So my holes are round but there is a black plastic insert that makes it oval for the lock to be held in place. Tightening only holds it somewhat tight and when I put the key in I can turn the whole mechanisim on most. I can also spin several of them by twisting the pull tab. Should the black plastic inserts be epoxied or am I missing something?

I could change the mechs but I am still going to have the issue of spinning since the hole is round. Those pot metal nuts can only take so much. That's what has me thinking something upon install was done wrong.

Go through the parts bin till you find the number you need where the keys have the same serial number... that is what I did...

There should be a washer an a lock washer under the nut. It sounds like you are running out of threads. You could remove the nut and install and extra washer . Or another cause may be the plastic insert might be a tad long and the nut is tight to the plastic but not tight to the access door thus letting the lock mechanism spin. (I hope what I wrote makes sense to you).

3'senough: Wonder how this turned out. I am wanting to install a new lock on a large door and need a source for the insert you mention. I can't find it in the few rv parts places I have looked.

Hey Norty the inserts came with the original supplied locks and I have not had to go out and buy them so sorry I cannot provide a supplier for them. What I did however do that is holding strong is put fast cure 5200 on the inside of all the locks liners. They don't spin anymore.

Maybe when you buy one you will get the needed liner or try asking Jayco. Sorry I can't be of more help.
