Storage Compartment Lock Replacement

Any advice on replacing the locking mechanism on the storage compartment on a newer airstream? This is the mechanism that has a key lock at the bottom and a lift handle that rotates 90 degrees. I have the new one in hand but with zero instructions.

Replaced the lock mechanism yesterday, very easy. Drilled out the lock, opened the storage door. There is a small bolt that holds the mechanism in place. Installed the new one with new gasket, had to use old cam lever but put it on the new unit as it came off the old. No problem at all.
