etrailer sells these in a pack of 4 for $34 bucks (and some change). A better deal than $15 per lock.

Yes, but I have broken two keys in the cylinder, and that was even with be lubing the arms periodically! I like this newer style, they seem more robust.

I replaced all of mine with combination locks like these. No more keys

I had my power mgmt system/surge protector stolen while parked at my outdoor storage facility. $250 later I now have tubular cam locks.

I can see how storing an RV in a storage facility could be more concerning than many parks and campgrounds.

BTW, The tubular cam locks appear to be great locks, something I would also purchase if I was more concerned about theft, which perhaps I should consider further. Also, as Bucko mentioned, they are not only stronger locks, but stronger keys as well (not that I have broken a key yet but it certainly could happen). ~CA

Compartment locks

Ok, I went with Meilock.com for locks! I purchased a 6pack of locks for $50.00. They look like a quality lock, were on my porch the next day. $64.00 total with shipping!
