Battery door won't open 1976

I also am having problems opening my battery compartment door on my 1976 Sovereign. According to the pdf chart the 1101X key works for the access doors and the battery door. I have the 1101X key but it won't open the battery door. I have had this trailer for more than 10 years and now for some reason the key won't work. Is there a way to open the battery door without a key and without damaging the door. Thanks

Don

It opened

Ok I went bak out and concentrated only on the 1101X key and the locked opened after a few tries. I guess because it had been sitting for a while without being opened it was being difficult. But its working fine now.

Thanks for the PDF on the Airstream locks that is valuable information.

Spray some lithium grease in the lock.

FWIW, my '87 Excella uses the same key for both storage compartments AND the two battery compartments - all keys are 432.
