Door lock problem

I have a 1988 classic 345 airstream motor home with a working door lock that is getting worn and sometimes does not catch. There are two "philip type" knobs that stick out of the lock side and fit into a latch on the body side. THe knobs that stick out are wearing irregulary and are out of round. Can they be screwed out and replaced? If so are they a standard screw or a special part?

You may have a Bargman L-300 lockset. Do a search for Bargman Lock. I found a diagram that shows a parts breakdown. If this is the lock, there is a rebuild kit available.

Thanks for the information about the Bargman L-300 . It is hard to tell if this is the lock I have. It looks similar but not exact. I looked online for a rebuild kit and could not find one. Lorca.

Those screws are a part of the lock, and are special to it.

They are bot ordinary screws.

I am not aware of a source for just "those screws."

The cause for the problem, is lack of proper running gear balance.

The entrance door is shaking up and down, which in turn, causes the wear you have described.

Thank you Andy for the reason that our lock has the problem it has. We will make sure that we watch that carefully. The problem is that we bought the Rv with this problem lock the way it is and want to replace it and are having a hard time trying to find a replacement. Once we get a new lock we will be careful to prevent this from happening while we are the caretakers of the RV.
Can you give us any more information on the type of lock we need. The L300 has 3 parts according to a web site I was on. They sell all 3 parts. I called the site on Saturday and the man said that there is one extra part that the airstream needs that is not listed but that I had to call back on Mon. I am not sure that this is the lock that fits the Airstream as the site was a general RV site and not an airstream site.

We have the replacement lock, with instructions.
