And the deadbolt can be locked/unlocked from inside or outside. What's the point of that?
On mine, there are 2 locks. When inside, slide the square plastic screen door latch access to the left. The lock on top is locked from the inside by sliding the button in its channel to the right. The one on the bottom is locked by turning it to the right.
My door was misaligned (had it fixed at the factory) such that the lock mechanism wouldn't work from inside and from outside I had to push hard on the bottom of the for to get it to lock.
If you're having trouble with that, your door might be misaligned.
As to why they can lock from in and out of the trailer - I thought that's how they all work (even in a stick home). When outside, you can use your keys to lock it so no one gets in while you're gone. When inside, you can turn the knobs so no one can get in while you're in it.
Am I misunderstanding your question?
