You can replace that external shower door lock.
It's actually easier than you would think.
First off, you have to squeeze the metal tabs on the old lock to get it out - they are press fit. The new lock can be attached using the supplied bolt.
Second, order the shortest lock cylinder that RVLocks has.
Third, take the cam arm off your old lock - to get mine off I had to file it off as it was crimped on. I used a bench grinder and just went slowly - it's just a cheap "base" metal so it's easy to grind and the arm is a standard, square mount cam arm that fit perfectly on the new lock.
Finally - put the cam arm in a vise (or use two sets of pliers) and bend the cam arm to make up for the difference in the length of the lock cylinder.

I did this to my water access door, and the access door to my levelup controller. Both had think plastic doors - but I was able to replace the locks perfectly.

I had a Kz Frontier that was like that. Both doors with a different key and then a different storage lock key. It drove me crazy. I love that our 2017 29qbs is set up for one key for the doors and storage.

My 2008 29 D is just like that but my keys are shaped differently. I just got to remember the short flat one is for the door in back. I would like to get copies made as we just bought it with 1 set a month ago.
