I'll try that storage again. couldn't even begin to get it into the keyhole. Maybe squirting graphite on it will help.

cekkk, I have found that at least one of my storage locks is mounted upside down from the rest of them and I always have to remember to reverse the key on that particular lock. It will go in OK but obviously will not turn. They seem to be getting worse even though I keep the RV in a covered dry storage. I am going to try graphite as well. It's got to make them a little better.

Talk to a locksmith. S/he might be able to come up with a matching set for you that has a unique key pattern.

Plus 1 here, I have those on my TT as well, they work well and are easy to replace. I did not think to put one on my shower compartment door, but it would be nice to get that one key off my keychain.. :hihi:

I'm the OP. I cannot tell you how hard I tried to get the *&(& cargo key into the keyhole. It would not even start, as though the key were wider than the hole. Took DW down to the barn yesterday after an ATV ride around the neighborhood (illegal, yeah, but in over an hour we encountered not one vehicle), asking her to give it a shot. Took her about two seconds. I KNOW I loosened it up!

You do know that its the skinny end that you stick into the hole and not the big round end....right????

If you were talking to that lock prior to her opening it you must have loosened it up. Either that or she talks a lot nicer to it than you did.
