When you turn the key with half the lock off, as in picture 1, does anything move?
Is it possible the deadbolt broke off and the lock part moves but the bolt doesn't reach? I can't tell from picture 4, but it sure looks recessed a lot.

Quite possible. An apparently common accident is trying to slam the door shut while the deadbolt is extended, resulting in a bent or broken shaft. We had Jackson Center straighten our bent deadbolt.

A bit of research and it appears that the lock is a TriMark 060-1300.

Here's a diagram if it helps! Let us know what you find.

Looks like how this works.
I forgot to ask, If you use the inside thumb latch, does it work then?

The deadbolt did not break off. Attached are more pictures. When 'assembled', if I am assembling it correctly, the key turns part way both ways but the deadbolt does not move. However, the deadbolt does move in or out when the cam arm is moved manually. Maybe when I assemble it I am not doing it correctly, but that offers no clue as to why it doesn't work because it should have worked correctly before I disassembled it. I am willing to order a complete new lock but I have no idea how I would replace to old one as it appears difficult to remove the internal assembly. I appreciate all the comments and welcome additional suggestions. Thank you.

No. Inside latch turns a little but does not move the deadbolt.

Had the same issue. Sliding Deadbolt has two surfaces. Surface next to the door skin is recessed back about 3/4 inch. I fixed mine by inserted a 1 inch piece of 1/8 inch hose back along the skin side. This keeps the recessed part of the bolt sliding forward to fully lock.

How did you remove the deadbolt? It seems the entire assembly would have to be removed to get at it. Do you have a picture? Thank you.

Making progress!
I see you have the lock tumblers out. Good.
If I understand, the deadbolt does not hangup except when using the key.
According to the flyer I attached from TriMark, The lock cylinder is repairable.*
I'd take it to a locksmith and see if a tumbler is broken inside. May be cheaper than a new lock.
BTW, Out of Doors mart sells the entire assembly for $79. Just in case.

The good news is you're not locked in, and you still have another lock to secure the trailer.
I have the same deadbolt. Mine always seems loose, but if I tighten the screws it won't work. I suspect it's because Airstream uses a hollow door and I'm pinching the mechanism.
I'm learning with you!

BTW, If you replaced the lock, you'd only use the parts you have out now. I think removing the bolt would require taking some rivets out. Last resort.

Pubtym and Mollysdad. When the deadbolt is not all the way in but flush with the door, the key works to slide the deadbolt either out or in, which is what should be happening. It is not much of a difference but enough to prevent the key from unlocking the deadbolt if the deadbolt is slid all the way back. PIctures are posted. The picture on the left is the situation where the deadbolt can not be moved by turning the key. Then the bolt can be moved by pushing forward on the wire spring in the picture. The situation on the right is when the deadbolt works both ways. Pubtym posted that he prevented the deadbolt from moving too far with a piece of rubber hose. I am wondering how to do that. Thanks again.

You are fortunate to have access to both sides of the lock, even though a malfunctioning lock is a PITA.

We were on a Cajun Caravan when our lock broke with us on the outside. Locksmith couldn't fix it, and we were locked OUT. Got someone skinny to climb through the cargo hatch and unlock the rear emergency window. Lock still wouldn't open so for the next week two 74 yr olds were climbing in and out of the rear window constantly. Not a pretty picture. Southland RV fixed it when we got home. Hope you can find a new lock or a dealer to fix it for you.

We've been unable to open our rear storage compartment. We had to remove the plywood bed board to get inside the compartment and removed the lock assembly to inspect. Still could not operate the lock. Short of getting a new lock assembly does anyone have suggestions on how this may be corrected? Thanks,

These deadbolts can be a little tricky. Since you have the inside exposed, lubricate everything that you see, all the moving parts. Extend the bolt and lubricate all sides. When you reassemble, tighten finger tight to start with. Then slowly tighten, testing the operation of the bolt as you go.
Different schools of thought on what best to use for lubricant.....either dry graphite or a good scilicone spray. I would try these steps before doing anything else
