Airstream, '69 Sovereign Battery Compartment

Hello I just purchased an Airstream, 69 Sovereign. I have been unable to get into the battery compartment as the key or lock no longer works? Any ideas on how to get in with out breaking the lock. Has any one found good replacement latches/lock for access panels on 69 or similar airstreams models?

You MIGHT be able to get in through the bathroom cabinets to change the battery. If the latches are the same as on 1970+ models, Inland or others may have them.
