Hi

You should be able to go to any good locksmith and he/she can rekey your locks to accomplish what you want.

I agree with puller. Changing them out is quite simple. TIP; When you install them, orient the key slot common, I.E. Locked is horizontal or vice versa on all and you can easily check locked or unlocked during a walk around.

I hate to be a wet blanket, but why bother. If someone wants to steal your stuff they will just pry your door open if it's locked. Now you've not only lost your stuff, but you'll have major work to repair your coach!

I oriented my key slots so that when they allign toward the opening the lock is locked. It makes a last minute walk about check easy to ensure the compartments are locked. it is true that some one with tools can force the door open, but at least you require the thief to carry tools.

Camping World sells full replacement lock sets keyed the same.

We all know that almost all of our exterior compartments use the CH751 key, but I also noticed that the lockable cabinet in the sleeper cab of my Vovlo uses CH751 as well!!!

It can make the difference on your insurance claim if you can show you locked the compartment. A secondary consideration is that thieves are usually a lazy person, why make it easy for them to take your stuff. Let them go onto the next rig with no locks being used.

I must agree with rverdlm. I've been rv'ing for a long time and have never lost anything to a thief. In fact, if we're camping with friends in a group, I don't lock the front door to the trailer. I hope that if the trailer ever caught on fire or something else bad happened, someone would go in anf rescue my two dogs. They are much more valuable than anything else in the trailer.
