Lock issue

Just bought a 2020 jay flight slx8 265rls having trouble with the locks. my key works fine in the dead bolt and one of the compartments but won’t lock the handle on the door and three of the compartments?

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Did they work correctly during your PDI? I'd have the the dealer fix them.

My locks were difficult when I brought my rig home initially too. I went around with a spray can of silicone (using the little straw attachment), and gave a shot in each lock cylinder. The key and cylinder worked fine after that treatment.

Seems Jayco can't afford a little bit of lubricant....

Also, many people have had issues with the dead bolts and strike pins on the doors. They need a good coating of grease, both on the pins and on the slotted door strikes.

The deadbolt lock on our trailer was difficult to lock until I checked the alignment of the strike to the bolt. It was off just a bit. Once I adjusted it, everything worked easily.

I would try lock ease if it doesn't get better take it back under warranty. My Jayco has a second home at camper world, they take forever to fix it and in the process damage another thing
