Remove key and blow compressed air in and around lock, repeat.
Be patient, if that fails squirt some wd-40 and let set, repeat above.
The pins are aligning with the key in, its just that these sit out in the weather and dirt, get gummy or a little corroded.
If key won't go in maybe something is in keyway.
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, the key goes in and I was working it back and forth frantically to no avail. It was working before and the keys still work in all other compartments so its not the keys.
You must be right - there's dirt in there. Will get a can of air as you suggest and blow them out. My old man told me never lube locks with WD40 so for once I'll listen to him and try graphite first. If that doesn't work I'll move onto WD40 or PBB.
For those who may be interested I called Jayco and the supplier of the doors and slam latches is Challenger. The manufacturer of the slam latches and keys is Global Link.
The Jayco part number of the slam latch is 0306146 which I think translates to Global Link part number BLL-50301-2006-1PK. NOTE: verify this for yourself before ordering. The proper part depends on many factors like cutout size and door thickness. They sell them @ Amazon and eTrailer.
Once I get this figured out I'll report back.
