Deadbolt Lock

I have a 1991, Classic Excella. The Deadbolt Key will not lock or unlock. Any suggestions?

I know I need to push or pull on the door to take the pressure off the door, then turn the lock. I have a groove in my bolt so it does not slide.

Check the alignment to see whether the bolt is able to enter the pocket. The door alignment may have shifted or the door hinge pins may have worn. Sometimes you need to pick up on the door to get the alignment right. Once you see that it will work with better alignment then you need to adjust the door hinge adjustments.

You might also check the level of the trailer - could be in a slight bind which will affect the lock.

does the deadbolt move if the door is open when the key is turned? or does the key not turn?
