RobFike,

Where did you buy your deadbolt lock?

It will be interesting to see if Airstream still stocks the dead bolt and at what price.

When cutting through the aluminum keep in mind there are wires around the dead bolt and the electric actuator.

Fortunately, my limited is accessible through panel removal and door frame trim, the only problem is the idiots decided to combine 4 light switches around the lock assembly and didn't insulate the connectors around the back of
switches which would short out on the frame as I was removing the wall panel.
Not to mention the scrap these guys left behind during the building process. I am sure they had shop vacs back then.

Guys,
This is where I got the new deadbolt which is actually called a mortise lock. This is from another post here on the forum. I'm going to repair my original to keep as a spare. I think the spring that breaks can be remade from a piece of hack saw blade.
The company that still has a few in stock is Maziuk who is a wholesale distributor for various lock manufacturers. Lock Distributor - Maziuk Phone # 315-474-3959.
Tell them what you are working on and the guy will probably remember the lock part number. Very helpful.

This info is from one of our other Airstream brothers.
When you call Maziuk, ask for Jim.
The part number is on the receipt.
OK that picture didn't work that well but.....
I believe the Ives part number is IVE1520420 152B26D Mortise Bolt. Price was $39.20 each.

Dead bolt repair thread

Rob is correct. When you call and ask for Jim, explain to Jim that I had talked to him back in September of 2012 and that he was very helpful. He took the time to take measurements while I was on the phone with him. They sell this same Mortise Bolt in various finishes. Any one of the finishes would be suitable for the Airstream. These Mortise Bolts have been discontinued by the manufacturer and it took me several days of searching and cross referencing numbers to finally find someone that had them in stock.

I'm not sure who else might stock these Mortise Bolts but once Maziuk sells their remaining stock it's going to be a lot harder trying to find replacements.

When I ordered I bought two, one to install right away and one as a spare.

Brad

Would you include a link to the dead bolt at Vintage Trailer Supply? I just checked and didn't find anything resembling what is used on the Classic motorhomes.

There is no picture associated with the listed dead bolt so how do you know it's the correct one?

380879 is the same part number of the one that was at outofdoorsmart.com. Call them and ask them to describe it. The numbers match
