key pad

YES! I think that's what I mean! Would that work in a 1971 sov???
It scares me to hear about all these lock failures for my year as I will be spending a significant time alone and being disabled- DO NOT want to ever deal with that problem. and I don't want to be dependent on other people, however generous, to fix my problems, if it's something I can take care of now. I can't be locked out of my medications, oxygen, or safe- clean-room, for even a couple of minutes. the reality is it could mean the difference between life or death, no sympathy please- it's just a fact.

Thanks for your help, Silver Suz

If you have the Keeler lock assembly (later 70's and on)
you can replace the tumbler which is the most often broken part. It cracks from age and usage. This tumbler is 10-15 dollars available at many RV parts places. It is easily replaced, although you will have to use the new key that comes with it.
I did the on in my motorhome when I first bought it.

Part is a Bargman L-300 assembly.

The key pad lock is very expensive and would not easily work on your trailer.

Keeler Brass locks were not used until the 1978 models.

You could remove your lock, send it in to be overhauled. That should give you at least 20 more years of service from it, I would think.

I have a keypad on my limited, however I do not know the code. either does the previous owner.

MH door locks

My original broke so replaced with the one in the pic. Also added a deadbolt for extra security. Nice install by RV specialist.

HOWEVER...

he messed up the aluminum latch for the screen door, so I temp replaced with 2 screws and thin metal until some nice person here posts a pic of what it should or could look like. I think i need to have someone weld or solder a 90 degree solid aluminum piece to the screen door frame.

BTW, he had said when I pointed that out to him that the door was already in that condition..yet that lock didn't fit flush as the smaller original did. If I were to do again I would send out to rebuils as Andy suggests.

my screen door has a piece of metal welded right there also. Works ok but I wondered what the original latch was like.

Door Lock

The $600.00 replacement lock is for a 1970 to 1977 trailer, only.

In 1978 Airstream used a lock mad by Keeler Brass. They are no longer in business.

A replacement lock kit is available that fits the 1978 to 1991 trailers.

It's cost is less than $150.00.

As per Airstream, a small modification to the door is necessary.

Total installation time is 1 hour or less.

Not something everyone can do, but most certainly by the person that has a few basic tools and a little mechanical moxie.

Andy,
So the replacment door lock/handle assembly can be purchased thru a airstream dealer for a 1980 model?
